Microsoft is bringing the Xbox One and Windows 10 PC even closer with Xbox Wireless, a new initiative that lets you freely uses compatible hardware and peripherals between the two systems.
The various Xbox One consoles and accessories currently available are already Xbox Wireless ready, so owners have to do nothing. The Lenovo IdeaCentre Y710 Cube is the first Xbox Wireless PC and, Microsoft believes
, will soon be joined by a slew of other Xbox Wireless PCs.
The tech giant has also partnered with Astro, Mad Catz, HyperX, Lenovo, Razer, PDP, Plantronics, SteelSeries and Turtle Beach to produce Xbox Wireless peripherals.
With Xbox Wireless, all you need is one set of peripheral for both your PC and your console, similar to the cross-buy and cross-play of first- and second-party games. In other words, it's synergetic with Microsoft’s Play Anywhere scheme.
Don't fret if you don't have have a PC with built-in Xbox Wireless support -- you can buy an adapater that will make your rig compatable.
Unfortuantely, the same can't be said about PC peripherals that don't have native Xbox Wireless support...
