Microsoft’s strategy for Xbox over the last few years has focused pretty heavily on integrating the worlds of PC and Xbox console gaming more and more, and with a recent update to the Xbox One wireless controller adapter for PC, more Windows users will able to enjoy their games with the latest controller hardware.

Originally released earlier this year for Windows 10 users, the Xbox One controller wireless adapter for PC has now been updated for use on PCs running Windows 7 or 8.1, according to a tweet sent out by Microsoft’s Larry Hryb, aka “Major Nelson.”

PC users have long been able to use an Xbox One controller on Windows PCs by simply plugging the controller in via USB, though Microsoft released an official wireless solution earlier this year, though only (initially) being supported by Windows 10 users.

However, those that have yet to upgrade to 10 and are remaining comfortably on Windows 7 or 8.1 can now use their Xbox One controllers wirelessly with the adapter, which you can click here to purchase through Amazon.
