The news from GDC comes thick and fast. Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer has announced a new gadget that will allow you to use your fabulous Xbox One controllers on your Windows PC.

This will be a wireless adapter so no messy cables to get in your way while playing your Windows games with your trusty Xbox controller.

Spencer said,

The wireless device you use on Xbox One will work on PC as well. We want to see that input isn’t a barrier. Gamers should be able to play the games they want to play.

No price was revealed but it was confirmed that the adapter will be available this year.

The 360 controller was available for Windows machines, with the easiest method being to simply buy the wired version as the touted wireless adapter at the time wasn’t actually that readily available. Good news for any cross-platform titles you may be planning to play in the new, upcoming Windows 10.
