Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows headed to retailers this week

Back in June Microsoft first announced that a new Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows would be released as part of Microsoft’s continuing efforts to bridge the gap between Xbox and PC gaming. Today, Microsoft has released the new device, one of the first Xbox accessories to support both Xbox and Windows.

“Today, we’re excited to share that we’ve started to ship to retailers in most markets around the world, including the U.S.,” Microsoft stated in a post earlier today for consumers. The device works by simply plugging in the Adapter into a USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 port on any Windows 10 PC laptop or tablet. Consumers will then bind the Adapter to your Wireless Controller and they can instantly start playing their favorite controller-supported titles right away. It’s remarkable easy to setup and should be a welcomed addition for the PC and mobile crowd.

Microsoft also stated that customers will be able to enjoy the same features that many have grown to love over the last few months including in-game chat and stereo audio. “The Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows accommodates up to eight controllers per unit, and up to four chat headsets or two stereo headsets,” Microsoft explains.

The Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows will be available for $24.99 USD (MSRP) or bundled with an Xbox One Wireless Controller for $79.95 USD (MSRP). You can pre-order the device from online outlets like Amazon if you would like to be one of the first to have one.
