Today, Xbox announced the first PC with integrated Xbox Wireless — the Lenovo IdeaCentre Y710 Cube. With built-in Xbox Wireless, this PC supports all Xbox One wireless accessories — such as the Xbox Wireless Controller — straight out of the box, without needing any additional adapters or wires. This expands the way gamers can connect their Xbox One accessories to their PC.
Best-in-class wireless gaming
Xbox Wireless provides you with a best-in-class wireless gaming experience across Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs. Designed specifically for gaming, Xbox Wireless provides advantages over other connection methods, such as:
- Low-latency and high-quality wireless gameplay for up to 8 devices* at once
- Cross-platform use across Xbox One and Windows PCs
- Wireless support for stereo sound through a headset
- Eliminating the need for multiple adapters or wires for each device
Windows 10 PCs with built-in Xbox Wireless support give gamers a number of premium ways to play together or alone. Exact implementation in Microsoft’s partners’ devices and accessories will vary based on the type of device and the partner themselves. In the IdeaCentre Y710, for example, the Xbox Wireless Adapter is being used and integrated inside the physical chassis – the first time this has ever been done officially.
For gamers who are happy with their current PC rig, but still want to take advantage of Xbox Wireless, the Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows is available now and can simply plug in to your Windows PC USB port.
