It’s basically the same, it just packs-in a cable
Microsoft made good on their promise to support the Xbox One controller on the PC, and it’s pretty much all I use now for the platform. All you really have to do is just get an appropriate USB cable and plug it in, and you’re good to go.
Soon enough though based on a new Microsoft store listing, you’ll be able to snag an Xbox One controller with a free cable, so that it’s available on PC after you take it out of the box. There’s still no word on a wireless adapter for PC.
