Microsoft recently announced the new version of its Xbox One console, Xbox One S. And with a new console usually come new accessories. Alongside the new console, Microsoft also made the new Xbox One controller available for pre-order.

The new gamepad is simply called the Xbox Wireless Controller and will be compatible with the Xbox One, Windows 10, and with the company’s upcoming console, the Xbox One S.

Design-wise, the new controller isn’t much different from a traditional one. It does sport a refined grip, though. Microsoft also added Bluetooth capability to the controller, increasing the range of the new controller.

Probably the biggest highlight of the new Xbox Wireless Controller is the addition of Windows 10-compatibility. The controller will be compatible with absolutely any Windows 10 PC that meets hardware requirements and has proper drivers installed.

The introduction of Windows 10-compatibility fits perfectly into Microsoft’s plans to bring Windows 10 and Xbox One closer to each other. Until now, we knew about software-side efforts, like bringing Cortana to Xbox One and merging the two platforms’ stores, but it looks like Microsoft went even further by introducing cross-platform compatible hardware.

The Xbox Wireless Controller will be available in Black, Lunar White, Dusk Shadow and camo themes, and is available for pre-order right now. It is available to pre-purchase for $59.99, and Microsoft will start shipping it on August 31.

Pre-order the new Xbox Wireless Controller from Amazon.
