So are these 100% ready to go for wireless and come with a play while charging cable out of the box for PC?
AA batteries are standard on this controller, so no play and charge cable included. The dongle requires a Windows update, but that's no big deal.So are these 100% ready to go for wireless and come with a play while charging cable out of the box for PC?
Referring to this one:
Can confirm. However if the Bluetooth device on your motherboard (or some third party dongle) is inadequate, connectivity will be spotty at best. Ask me how I know.
I went with the one with the Dongle for $60 just now from the MS store. Amazon has the older model controller on the site and couldn't find the the bundle with the newer controller.
Is there a rechargeable battery pack that can be used? I seem to recall the older Xbox models had that option.

I bought three controllers. Two of the standard for $40, and one for the PC at $60 with the bundled USB wireless adapter.
The wireless adapter isn't recognized in device manager, and I can't seem to install any drivers. I'm on Windows 10 v 20H2, which should be a compatible version, but still no joy. I've uninstalled the Xbox wireless device, re-inserted, restarted, installed the Xbox Accessories app. All nada.
All three new controllers seem to connect and work with my Xbox Series One Wireless fob, but weird it doesn't work with the new USB wireless adapter.
Guess I'll probably just wait and see if drivers fix this.

I honestly don't know. I've had my controller for years now and the thumbstick is damn near worn off so I decided to snag one to use with my pc. For $40 new it's worth it to meMaybe a dumb question, but is this a worthwhile upgrade over the Xbox One controller I have?
I'd also like to know. I've been using an Xbox One controller for maybe 8 years now, but everything is still in working order; so unless there is some clear benefit I'd rather minimize waste and stick with the one I have.Maybe a dumb question, but is this a worthwhile upgrade over the Xbox One controller I have?
If you are getting these for PC, I HIGHLY recommend getting the usb adapter. There are situations I have had using Xbox controllers via bluetooth, that kill your FPS is certain titles. I was stumped, why some older games were chugging on my high end desktop, and found out that it was when I used the controller via bluetooth. It is a known issue, and I could replicate it on my home theatre PC as well, so its worth the extra money to get the adapter IMHO.
Glad to hear the d-pad is better. It "looks" more like the 360 one, and that one was garbage. Ok so maybe it's just that it is disk-like shaped. But the old old one was bad enough I shuddered a little lol.
I always go for the ones with the diamond texture on the back like the blue one. It doesn't seem like much but my hands get sweaty and it holds surprisingly wellThis is such a good deal. It's competing within the range on 3rd party controllers. I got the black one to go with the PC.
