Why exactly would you be better off getting an Xbox One controller for the PC over a 360 controller? The latter is cheaper and except two buttons which are designed slightly differently. Both are just as compatible with each other.

It's still terrible that you probably need a proprietary dongle just to get it to work wirelessly when you can just use any DS3/4 controller or even WiiU pro that uses bluetooth.

All current controllers work on PC(except the Wii U gamepad) My brother only uses a DS3 on his PC now and i still use a wired 360 pad but I wonder will they have 360 pad support for Dead rising 3?(which is coming out on PC soon)

Because the XB1 controller is oh-so-comfortable.
Also, I cant use my wireless 360 controller on PC without buying a new dongle(My other one broke), while my XB1 controller can be plugged in with a USB cord.

Well if they can't get people to buy the Xbone the can at least make money off the controller.

Is it just me or is Microsoft actually worse when it comes to proprietary stuff than Sony?

Took them longer to release these drivers than expected. Was implied, I think, to be early 2014, not mid-2014. Still, I'll probably pick up one of these sooner or later. Perhaps by the time I grab one, the driver will be automatically installed via windows.

PC games ported from Xbox titles often leave in the Xbox controller code, giving it better native support with the X1 controller, as well as simplicity to sync 4 controllers to 1 PC with a single dongle. Bluetooth can have complications, including but not limited to, poor response time and random disconnects. X1 and 360 controllers often need no special Xpadder-type software to function correctly with their games, and the buttons that display on-screen correspond to the X, Y, B, A buttons on the controller.

Now, why do we need the X1 controller over the 360 controller? Mostly, because the Dpad on the 360 controller is absolute garbage. But beyond that, the ability to navigate the Start Screen and move the cursor natively in Windows 8 would be a key selling point, especially for HTPC/Gaming rigs.
