X1 Controller PC Compatibility Coming in 2014


For some PC gamers, the ability to use an Xbox 360 controller was a viable alternative to the mouse and keyboard setup. But with the announcement of the Xbox One, and subsequently an entirely new controller, questions lingered about compatibility. Thankfully, a Kotaku interview with Microsoft has confirmed the Xbox One controller will work with PC titles--eventually.

"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 with a vast array of PC titles that offer gamepad functionality. The controllers are also compatible with some Mac games, using third-party drivers.
