For what has felt like forever, gamers have wanted the Xbox controller made available for Windows, and now that day has come.

The new Xbox controller for Windows is different to the one console gamers know and love, with a USB cable tethering it to your PC. The new Xbox controller, while made for Windows, still works on the Xbox. The new controller sports infrared LEDs that can be picked up by the Kinect, working with other Xbox hardware such as the Charge Kit and Chat Headset.

 

Microsoft has made its new Xbox controller for Windows compatible with Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, requires a single USB port, and is priced at $59.95. Microsoft will make the new Xbox controller available to all in November.
