Xbox One controller support coming to PC in 2014

The Xbox 360 controller is pretty much the unofficial PC controller too, but we won’t be able to jump to the Xbox One’s revamped buttonbox so easily. Official PC support isn’t expected until some time in 2014, as Microsoft is making sure its basic functions are backwards-compatible and its shiny new features are supported.

"As we’ve stated, the Xbox One controller, although it looks similar in many ways, shares no underlying technology with the current Xbox 360 controller. New wireless protocol, combined with the ability to work in ’wired’ mode, and the addition of features like Impulse triggers, means that new software has to be written and optimized for the PC," Microsoft told CVG.

"There is also 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. While it seems trivial, it’s actually quite a bit of dedicated work for all that to be seamless for the user."

It all sounds fair enough. Don’t throw out your Xbox 360 controller just yet.
