Xbox One Controller PC Compatibility Coming in 2014

Personally, I have often used my wired Xbox 360 controller on my PC when playing titles such as Skyrim, Sonic All Stars Racing, etc and it is no surprise that Microsoft have confirmed their new Xbox One controller will be compatible with PCs in 2014.

Microsoft explains, “There is some work that we need to do to make sure that existing PC games that support the Xbox 360 controller will work with the Xbox One controller,” a Microsoft spokesperson told Kotaku via email. “While it seems trivial, it’s actually quite a bit of dedicated work for all that to be seamless for the user. We know people want to use the Xbox One controller on their PC, and we do too–we expect to have the functionality available in 2014.”

Currently, the Xbox 360 controller works exceptionally with a vast array of PC titles that offer gamepad functionality and is used by gamers all around the world. The controllers are also compatible with some Mac games, using third-party drivers.

About / Bio
I'm a lifelong gamer and share my passion with the world in the form of streaming my games on twitch.tv - www.twitch.tv/terrorhertz and making YouTube videos about all the games I enjoy. I'm also a budding games journalist here :)

My gaming journey began in the Christmas 1992 when aged 6, I got my Sega Mega Drive with Sonic One and World Cup Italia 90. Since then I have played and own pretty much every console since then, just check my collection video on my YouTube channel.

Now days I mainly play PC games and got into the PC side of things when I started playing Everquest in 2005. This game opened my eyes to the mmorpg genre and since then have played most MMO's of which World of Warcraft was my most played. Right now I'm playing and streaming DayZ and FIFA with a few other games thrown in here and there. I'm a games journalist and write weekly articles and monthly reviews and previews whilst also uploading 3+ videos weekly to my YouTube channel where you can find loads of awesome HD gaming videos - www.youtube.com/terrorhertzhd

I've worked as a hardware/software technician for Apple the past 4 years and really enjoy working with computers. I have built/modded/overclocked PC's since around 2007 and it's a massive interest of mine. My other hobbies include video editing, carp fishing, golf and playing guitar.
