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 x86 and x64 form. According to Major Nelson, the controller must be connected to your PC using a microUSB cable.

RE: No Wireless

I don't see why they can't add support for wireless eventually. Assuming your PC has a new enough version of BT to connect with it, you probably won't even NEED an adapter. But initially, it's wired only.
