Microsoft insists Xbox One controllers are compatible with the PC

Drivers to be released later this year

Microsoft has insisted that the Xbox One controllers will be compatible with Windows PCs although they may not release a PC-specific package for them.

Director of product management for the Xbox One, Albert Penello has been addressing the issue over on NeoGAF emphasising that the drivers will become available later on this year.

"When the drivers become available, they will work with the existing controllers,” Penello stated. “There is no plan to do a new, separate controller that only works on Windows. It will be the same as it is on Xbox 360 - the Xbox One controller you have today will work. That's not to say that we may not ship also PC SKU of the Xbox One controller, much like we do on Xbox 360." Microsoft insists Xbox One controllers are compatible with the PC

He added "No more updates on the timeframe beyond what's been publicly stated. The plan is this year. When the update comes out and we have more details, I can explain the holdup."
