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.
