Major Nelson loves to share good Xbox news whenever he can, so it is no surprise that it is through his blog that the Xbox One controller drivers for the PC have just been released. As you can see in the above image, the good Major is shown playing Halo 2 on his Surface Pro tablet, perhaps a tease of things to come during Microsoft’s E3 2014 briefing.

Any games or applications that supported the Xbox 360 controller should also now support the Xbox One controller, once those drivers have been installed and the controller hooked up vis mini-usb. It continues a trend that Microsoft has been good for recently in providing service updates ahead of E3 2014 so they can stick to their commitment to showcasing games. So far, a Kinect-free $399 SKU, Xbox One Games With Gold, removed paywall for entertainment apps and 45 said apps coming to the Xbox One and Xbox 360 by the holiday season have all been announced very recently.
It’s clear that Microsoft are very much taking a “full hearts, clear eyes, can’t lose” approach to targeting E3 2014, and are making that push hard. As Microsoft gear up towards releasing in dozens of more markets (hopefully) by the end of the year, it’s great to see them polish up their services now. With several of the current 13 Xbox One markets still not receiving full Kinect support, there is still some work to be done. However, you can’t fault Microsoft for making these giant strides.
