Microsoft seeds PC drivers for Xbox One controller

We’re literally just days away from this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), but Microsoft’s Larry Hryb, or more commonly known as Major Nelson, couldn’t wait for the annual trade fair to announce the availability of the drivers that will allow gamers to use their Xbox One controller to their PC.

In his blog, Major Nelson stated that although Microsoft plans to include the driver to one of their upcoming Windows update, he knows that there are a lot of Xbox One users who are dying to have the drivers ASAP, which is why he decided to give them an early treat just before E3 2014.


If your using a PC running on a 64-bit version of Windows, you can download the Xbox One Controller driver though this link. Conversely, you can download the driver for your x86 machine by clicking on this link.

You don’t need to change any settings on your PC to sync your controller. Just install the driver and connect your Xbox One controller and you’re good to go.

    Sus. This is something they should have done YEARS ago. I’m already comfortable using my PS3 DS3 controller on my PC.

      Do you mean A YEAR AGO? The Xbox One was only released last year. And the Xbox 360 controllers are working flawlessly.

      My Logitech PC controller (w/c looks like a PS1/2 controller w/o vibration) still needs a Disk driver for it to work. But a Mouse only utilizes Plug N’ Play. Why can’t those controllers have that feature anyways!?
