+ - You can now use the Xbox One controller to play games on the PC

BogenDorpher writes: In August of last year, a Microsoft spokesman confirmed that the Xbox One controller will be compatible for PC users sometime in 2014. That time has finally come. Windows gamers can now use the Xbox One controller to play games on their computer. If a game supports a USB gamepad or the Xbox 360 controller, it will also support the Xbox One controller thanks to these drivers. Grab the driver downloads for 32bit or 64bit Windows and game on!
