Wires are painful to manage and they really piss everyone off when they look ugly. Luckily, you wont have to suffer through that with Xbox One.

Microsoft is releasing a USB dongle for Xbox, Which finally will let anyone use Xbox Controller wirelessly with a Windows 10 PC. Ending the annoyances of the ugly cable that was needed to connect Xbox One controller.

Microsoft has decided 20th October to release the product. The estimated retail price according to the website is $24.99. It does not include the controller.

What XBox One Wireless Adapter does and what it doesn’t?

The adapter only works with Windows 10. So, if you are rocking Windows 7 or 8.x, you are out of luck. Also it only works with XBox One controller. Your old XBox 360 controller will not work with the wireless adapter.

At best,it will come in handy if  you want to stream Xbox One games to your Windows 10 PC.  Also  using the Xbox One Wireless Adapter, you can enjoy the your Steam Games on your Home Theater system wirelessly.

Given that the controller costs just $60, cost of adapter looks too much.
