The Xbox 360 controller has been popular since its launch in 2005, even after its follow-up controller launched in 2013. Why? Because it's one of the best "it just works" gaming pads for PCs.
After third-party solutions forced the issue, Microsoft eventually continued the "it just works" tradition in 2014 by launching official, perfectly solid drivers for the Xbox One controller. That tradition looked like it would live on this week with the rollout of another updated Xbox One controller model, complete with a new Bluetooth radio.
After some investigating, however, Ars Technica has bad news for PC gamers who just want to get their Xbox One pads working on their favorite games. Whether you use a new Bluetooth controller or you upgraded your old XB1 to this week's Windows 10 Anniversary edition, get ready for some road bumps.
