I've tried it and didn't worked as far as I noticed. Also how do you like it? I just got it today and tbh, i'm not really impressed... Like much more joycons

You take your xbox one controller plug it in and it works and the plus side is that it looks exactly the same as the switch controller so it will feel like your using your switch controller on pc !

Mine works on Windows 10. I use to play Cemu emulator and some PC games but for the PC games you need x360ce or another xbox controller emulator to proper button mapping. You dont need drivers just plug and play.

One more thing. There seems to be two versions of these controllers, one's that come with replaceable analog stick caps and ones without that feature. Not sure if that makes any difference but it's worth noting.

I plugged the controller into my corporate PC. It shows up as a "Core Plus Wired Controller". Now I'm wondering why it's not showing on my Steam PC. Gonna do a hardware refresh in the device manager and see what I get.

It works 100% just leave steam open and it will recognize it as an Xbox 360 controller

I must be missing something :/ On my PC Windows will recognize the controller but Steam doesn't see it at all. I'll do some further digging after I play around with the Rainway beta later today!

Same issue. Solution: Return it for a refund and buy a controller that is compatible. PowerA will not release a Windows 7/8/10 driver. The email I received from them stated the reasoning as: "We did not intend on it being used for anything other than the switch. We do have other compatible controllers."
So... fk them. Get a refund. Shame too cause the controller (BotW) is epic.
