Using Xbox One Controller With PC

No Comment 177 Views

They say that the Xbox One controller is an upgrade when compared to the Xbox 360 controller, refining an already fantastic gamepad. Actually, the 360 controller is the standard one for lots of PC gamers who prefer playing games without a keyboard and a mouse. Thanks to the rubberized analogue sticks which give it much needed grip, and a directional pad that's actually usable in fighting games, the Xbox One controller is worth the price of entry.

While Microsoft is trying to make it usable on PC without wires, you can easily play the game on your computer with an Xbox One controller which is wired in.

Apart from a computer with Windows, you need only a Micro-USB cable (used for charging most Windows and Android smart phones), an Internet connection to download the required drivers, and the aforementioned Xbox One controller.

  1. Install drivers
    Boot up your PC, connect to the Internet. Download and install one of these driver packages depending on your version of Windows:

    PC drivers for 32-bit Windows

    PC drivers for 64-bit Windows

  2. Connect the controller
    With the drivers installed, plug in the Micro-USB end of the cable to the controller and the USB end of it into your computer's USB port. If it works, the controller will vibrate. If it does not vibrate, try another Micro-USB cable and/ or a different USB port.

Please note:

In case you plan to use the same controller with an Xbox One, you will have to re-sync the controller to the console. This can be done by holding the wireless sync buttons on the console and controller at the same time or attaching it to the console via a Micro-USB cable.
