New Xbox Wireless Controllers and Xbox Wireless Adaptor for Windows 10 Revealed

By Ashley Woodcock, 2 months ago
The Xbox Design Lab website gives a fantastic range of options for customising your Xbox Wireless controller to your heart's content. Whether you want to mix and match colours, or use a design inspired by the likes of Final Fantasy, Minecraft, Middle-earth: Shadow of War, or Forza Motorsport 7, or even purchase a controller from the Recon Tech Special Edition series, there's a decent amount from which to choose. Microsoft has announced another new design for Xbox Wireless Controllers with three new editions, as well as a new and smaller Xbox Wireless Adaptor for Windows 10.

Each of the new controllers will connect with any Xbox One or Xbox One X once it comes out. PC gamers will be able to enjoy the benefits of a new Xbox Wireless Adaptor for Windows 10 that is half the size of the previous one and therefore takes less space around your USB ports. If this sounds like the kind of adaptor for you, you can purchase one on its own or in a bundle with a black Xbox Wireless Controller.

The new and improved Xbox Wireless Adaptor for Windows 10 enhances your controller connection when gaming on Windows 10 PCs and tablets. It’s 66 percent smaller than the original Xbox Wireless Adaptor for a smaller form factor and to fit better next to other USB devices you may have plugged in nearby. The Adaptor offers wireless stereo sound support and the ability to connect up to eight controllers at once.
Treat yourself to the adaptor for US$24.99 starting in August for select markets. Buyers will also have the choice to grab the adaptor bundle with the Xbox Wireless Controller for US$79.99.
