Now, with Xbox Wireless, that's getting taken a step further. The Lenovo IdeaCentre Y710 Cube will be the first PC to ship with that Xbox One controller wireless adapter built right into the chassis, with more to come. Down the line, Microsoft is promising more devices with deeper integrations.
What this means for you: Starting with that Lenovo PC, and continuing on well into the future, it's increasingly likely that your next Windows 10 PC will support Xbox controllers straight out of the box. Microsoft promises that Xbox Wireless is more responsive and reliable than Bluetooth, while also supporting up to eight connected controllers.
Microsoft also promises that future third-party accessories, like the guitar controller that comes with the forthcoming "Rock Band Rivals," will support Xbox Wireless on both the PC and Xbox One. Which also lends a nice side benefit for gamers that mainly play on the Xbox One console, too.
By opening up Xbox Wireless to outside parties, it means accessory manufacturers can finally make wireless Xbox accessories. It sounds obvious, but Microsoft has long been loathe to share its wireless standard with anyone outside its own walls, meaning that most non-Microsoft controllers for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One needed unsightly wires.
