The only other fact worth noting is that the adapter does not work with Xbox 360 controllers, just like the original version of the Xbox Wireless Adapter. It supports wireless stereo sound and lets you connect up to eight controllers at once. It should also replace the older Wireless Adapter in the bundle that includes it with a new Xbox Wireless Controller around the same time.
Previously, the PC's wireless adapter for Xbox One controllers was massive and very clunky. This model has a metallic finish with a matte top and glossy buttons/triggers and D-pad.
Microsoft is also offering PC gamers the blue "Patrol Tech" controller with an included USB cable.
Pre-orders for Microsoft's latest competition have not yet been made available, so this is the first chance fans will have to secure the console. It's available for pre-order for $64.99 and is slated to begin shipping August 3. The back of the controller features our fan-favorite rubberized diamond grip for added control and comfort. PC gamers can pick up the adapter on its own, or bundled with a black Xbox Wireless Controller. You can pre-order it now for $69.99 and it's expected to start shipping September 5.
What do you think of this list for Games With Gold for the month of August?
The new adapter is available to pre-order for $24.99 and expected to start shipping to "select markets" this month. If you have the Xbox accessories app then you can go as far as remapping the buttons to suite your play style better. You can also take advantage of the custom button-mapping feature through the Xbox Accessories App. The boxes will be available from August 31 to October 4 "at participating Taco Bell locations while supplies last".
