    Hello,

    I am new to Xbox and want to use the Xbox Wireless Controller on my Win 10 PC and like to ask... what care I have to take while purchasing it ?

    Is there different types of wireless controller for Xbox S and Xbox X ?

    I also understand there was some update by Microsoft to controllers, so how to make sure it is the latest revision ?

    Also, will I get Rumbles & vibration on most games ?

    Need all your assistance guys :-)

    It depends on the controller you have as the original xbox one controller only connects via WiFi Direct (as well as the elite controller) so you will either need a wireless xbox dongle/adapter or a micro-b usb cable.

    If you have the xbox one s controllers then you should be able connect via bluetooth however that depends if you have a bluetooth adapter or a motherboard with built-in bluetooth functionality / laptop with functional bluetooth.

    The must have accessory I would say is a rechargeable battery pack and if you play using the usb cable - just make sure you detach the reacharable battery pack / batteries before doing so. It's a simple precaution to prevent rechargeable batteries from over charging and to prevent non chargeable batteries causing damage. I noticed one of the venom battery packs not lasting long as usual when I used to play with it plugged in whilst connected to the PC via the usb cable and also non chargeable batteries ran warmer than usual whilst connected via usb cable.
