Remember last year when Microsoft announced a new Xbox Wireless Adapter? It was smaller than the current model, similar to a USB key drive? Well, it’s now finally available for sale. 

Originally this device was supposed to be available in stores and the Microsoft store website, back during August 2017. But for some reason, the Xbox Wireless Adapter simply disappeared from the website. There was no mention from Microsoft either, so we were left wondering what had happened. Well, that’s water under the bridge now, and I’ve happily purchased two of the devices. Expect a review once I’ve put it through its paces.

So why should you pick up the newly updated Xbox Wireless Adapter? Well, if you happen to enjoy using the Xbox One controllers on your PC, this is a nice device to have. Sure, you can use a Bluetooth adapter, but the Xbox One connectivity over Bluetooth on most PCs has been spotty. Not to mention this adapter will handle up to eight controllers, four standard headsets or two stereo headsets. 

If you’re interested, you can pick up one now via the Microsoft Store for $24.99. At least for now, as I haven’t seen the adapter available at Best Buy, Gamestop or Amazon. But I’m sure that it’s just a matter of time before all of those stores get it in stock.

Can’t wait for mine to get here, so I can finally get rid of that original adapter. If you saw my review of it, I’m wasn’t a fan of it.
