Microsoft releases Windows drivers for the Xbox One controller
Here’s a nice Thursday treat for
Xbox One users
that also happen to game on desktop PCs as well (or for those that just want to purchase an Xbox One controller ONLY for PC use) — Microsoft is now making PC drivers available for the controller.
Microsoft’s Larry Hyrb (aka, Major Nelson) announced the news on his blog, stating, “We know our fans have wanted PC compatibility, and we know they wanted to be able to use the Xbox One controller with the same games and applications they have been playing with using the Xbox 360 controller.”
“We can’t wait for them to play their favorite PC games with what we consider the best controller ever made and we’re excited for fans to experience the improved D-pad, redesigned battery compartment, new comfortable design and offset analog sticks.”
Windows drivers are available to download right now in
form. According to Major Nelson, the controller must be connected to your PC using a microUSB cable.

The 360 controllers are perfect for third person games on the PC like Dark Souls 1 and 2. In fact, after beating Dark Souls 1 with it, the controller has become quite intuitive.
I won't use it, however, to play stuff like Super Street Fighter IV online. I have my Qanba Q4 for that. >:)
And for simming... well I have my modded HOTAS Cougar + hand re-wired and modded CH Pro Pedals. My HOTAS costs more than my PC. That's how crazy us PC nuts are.
The 360 Controller, though, is perfect for what it is. I own two of them for the PC, actually. A corded one and a wireless one.
