Microsoft to offer a wired Xbox One controller for Windows PC gamers in November
Microsoft will give Windows PC games a new gamepad option in November when it launches the Xbox One Controller + Cable for Windows for the price of $59.99.
The actual design of the controller is the same as the one that Microsoft made for the wireless Xbox One version when it launched in November. It can also be used on the Xbox One, both in wired and wireless mode.
The main difference is that the Windows version comes with a nine foot long USB cable so it can connect to a PC; sorry, there's no PC wireless support for this gamepad. The controller supports Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. If you are a hardcore PC gamer, will you be getting the Xbox One controller for Windows?

Also no word on firmware upgrade for the gamepad if you only own a PC.
I still don't like wireless controllers
Still, it is very good, just a bit too light and twitchy.
