Also the new bluetooth controllers heat
This was £29.99 on Amazon the other day but still hot.
Ordered this the other day and was able to use the free credit Microsoft gave which was nice. Delivery was very quick
As I mentioned in the thread about the one with wireless dongle dont get excited by bluetooth. its good for connecting to phone for xcloud but bluetooth is very glitchy and less functionality than the wireless adapter (which costs £16-20 unless you get the bundle)

Ah thats a good deal!
I was talking more about the PC situation where bluetooth gets you up and running quickly but is more glitchy than using wireless. Years ago the old wired x360 controllers dindnt support wireless but the description for xbox one controllers says wireless plus cable so any of them ought to work with xbox one - whichever has the colour you like and is the cheapest!

No xbox controller is just for windows

I may be having a dull moment, so the controller doesn't have rechargeable batteries as standard and also needs a wireless adapter to work effectively?

Takes normal AAs or you can buy the xbox battery pack. I use the low self-discharge Amazon AA rechargable

Xbox console has wireless built in for xbox controller or you can use the cable if no batteries available

For PC you can use bluetooth but I'm not a fan. Or you can use the cable or or buy a "xbox wireless adapter for windows" (best solution but costs 16-20 quid if not bundled)

The reason for this catching me out is that PS4 controllers already have a rechargeable battery in them.
I thought it was mean not to have rechargable built in, but when the battery goes flat you can just pop new ones in - with the PS or Nintendo its wait to charge or try to find a USB lead long enough

That's very 2004 and just seems like an odd choice on Microsoft's part, especially given the price of on Xbox One controller is on par with a PS4 controller
Can this be used as a normal xbox controller?
Need a second controller but a bit clueless. Thanks

Ah nice one, didn't know that
This any good to use on my hyperspin?
Can you use a regular charge cable on a normal controller for windows?
Do these work with an Xbox one
Does this have Bluetooth?
Could I use it to play COD mobile on my android phone?
Buy Microsoft credit from somewhere like CDKeys, top up your Microsoft account and then enjoy even more discount on this price.

I've got a Bluetooth dongle from ebay for less than a fiver on my pc. It runs without problem as long as you don't update Bluetooth drivers.
I've got my tv,, dualshock 4, xbox one pad, alexa, headphones, note 10plus, all through the Bluetooth.
Forget the wireless dongle as its too closed a system . Try and use Bluetooth.
Edited by: "mark6220" 30th Nov 2019
Too closed?
With Bluetooth for PC use you get
-a longer time to connect
- instances of extreme stutter in some games
- no support for the headset connector
- no support for the W10 accessories app (needed for f/w updates)
versus using xbox wireless dongle

Things may have improved with this months new Xbox controller firmware but for the best day to day gaming experience use a xbox wireless dongle. Sadly these are £16-20 so the bundles with dongle might work out cheaper In the long run

Bluetooth is jack of all trades but master of none. You can get anything working with anything with BT but the bespoke connection protocols always win out
Edited by: "jwsg" 30th Nov 2019
Why is anyone connecting to the pc again? I game through nvidia shield GeForce now which is perfect with Xbox pad, I have game streamed to the pc before with Bluetooth bc and been fine also
Edited by: "wipe0wt2097" 30th Nov 2019
There is a deal for £41 with the adapter but I’ve no idea why anyone would need it
Great you like the shield - this deal is for the 99.99999% of other people using xbox or PC or xcloud

Just scroll up to see why the dongle bundle makes sense unless youre sat at PC and not on the sofa. Its not a bluetooth dongle but xbox wireless which is less glitchy than bluetooth and has more functionality. Its £16-20 to buy on its own
HEAT!!!!!

Does that mean it doesn't need a usb receiver in the PC for Windows 10 gaming?

If you're PC has bluetooth in (make sure as not all PCs do) then yes

Been using BT with mine for over a year, haven't experienced any of the problems you're describing.
Is this a normal Xbox one controller that comes with the cable as well? I am interested to know if this works in Xbox one too. Thanks
Even if it was wired only - and I dont think Microsoft make wired only any more - it should still work on xbox by plugging in
But is says wireless in the description. The new ones have two systems Xbox wireless and Bluetooth. Xbox wireless works on consoles and the Microsoft wireless dongle for PCs and Bluetooth for phones and PCs (but I find BT glitchy on PCs)
So the product title "for Windows" is confusing for everyone
SupremeJJ30/11/2019 18:42

I've got a couple of bt dongles thank you. I know next to nothing about Xbox controllers
bought with discounted xbox live gift card credit, Thanks OP
