Play it with an Xbox One controller

Dead Rising 3 was our favourite launch title on either new-gen console by a country mile, translating horsepower into outrageous fun rather than shiny graphics. However, PC gamers will soon be able to get in on the action with a graphically-enhanced PC version of the Xbox One exclusive, boasting "upgraded textures" and trading cards if you buy on Steam.

You might not have to play it on Xbox One, but at least you can use an Xbox One controller. Microsoft has now released the drivers at long last; they'll be included in a later automatic Windows update or you can grab them now from Major Nelson. Unlike the Xbox 360 controller, you can connect it via a standard micro USB cable.

Great news on the drivers, however, the real question is can I use the Xbox one controller without connecting it to my computer with a lead?

The Xbox 360 controllers certainly can do it (There is a USB adapter dongle thingy) and it works flawlessly. I would like to know if the Xbox One controllers can do this?

(I mean, come on it's 2014, who connects their game pads to their machines using a wire?)

Still unsure (Read: this news is too new, wait a couple of days for someone to test!)

I quite agree though - wireless controllers should be standard, not a bonus or gimmick.
