Microsoft’s New Xbox Wireless Adapter Goes on Sale

As promised, Microsoft is finally opening up sales of its new Xbox Wireless Adapter. Back in August of last year, the company announced the new Xbox Wireless Adapter, promising an official release a few weeks later. But plans changed and the company delayed the release by around 6 months.

Today, the company started selling the new Xbox Wireless Adapter on the Microsoft Store for $24.99, as first spotted by The Verge. The new Xbox Wireless Adapter is actually 66% smaller than the previous generation and is capable of supporting up to 8 controllers simultaneously, 2 headsets with stereo, and 4 regular headsets. The new adapter isn’t really useful if you already own a Surface device that comes with integrated Xbox Wireless support like the Surface Book 2 or Surface Studio, however.

Microsoft is selling a standalone version of the adapter, though you can get it with an Xbox Wireless Controller as a bundle for $79.95. Stocks are likely limited, so get one quick before it runs out.
