Microsoft has just announced that if you were tired of hacking drivers to make the Xbox One controller compatible on your PC, you can finally buy a retail-packaged version of the thing along with a nice, long, 3-metre cable along with software to make it work on Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 operating systems. You’re out of luck if you wanted to run one of these on your Linux machine or with OS X with the ability to update the firmware properly, but there’s some basic functionality already for those platforms so long as you’re running it in wired mode. If you want a wireless controller, the Xbox 360 version with the charge and play kit is still an option and Sony’s Dualshock 4 officially supports being run on various platforms because it uses Bluetooth for wireless connectivity.
