Currently have one Xbox one controller connected to my Windows 10 pc with the wireless adapter. It works well... so well that I'm thinking for some multiplayer goodness to get a second controller but googling gives me conflicting information.

 

Can a second one be used? Do I need a second wireless adapter?

I believe you can use up to 4 controllers on the one wireless adapter.

I currently have 2x xbox one controllers (1x xbox one dongle) and 2x xbox 360 controllers (1x xbox 360 dongle) connected to Windows 10 pc. Make sure you update firmware on xbox one controllers, I had issues before I did update.

Wow my xbox controller has bluetooth?

 

"Notes

 

Connecting more than 1 controller to your device with Bluetooth may be possible, but performance can vary depending on your PC.

 

Requires Windows 10 Anniversary Edition and Xbox Wireless Controller with Bluetooth. See Windows Update: FAQ to learn how to get the latest Windows update.

 

For best performance, update your controller. See How to update your Xbox One Controller on Windows 10."
