If you've been frustrated with the inability to use the Xbox One controller on PC without a long cable that inevitably starts falling apart after a few months, I have some good news. Microsoft is finally giving PC gamers the thing they've been screaming for — a wireless adapter.
It's coming later this month. No, really.
It looks like a USB stick, but it's basically your bog-standard adapter. Nothing special really — a black, Xbox-branded plug that'll cost $30. You'll need Windows 10 to use it, of course, although that shouldn't come as a surprise.
The listing on the Australian Xbox store has the same release date as its American counterpart, although the pricing works out a lot better after the exchange rate kicks in.
It's also much cheaper through Microsoft's online stores than going to EB Games, which is selling the adapter for $40. The placeholder release date is still at the top of EB's listing, although you'd imagine that will get updated in the next 24 to 48 hours.
The package also comes with a "USB extender cable" that's designed to "enhance placement and accessibility to the Wireless adapter", which is nice of Microsoft I guess. And there's an interesting note in the listing that users may have to download "[a] significant firmware update", but there's no information on how large that download will be.
