USB 2.0/1.1 ports Xbox one controller?


I am thinking of getting some Xbox one controllers for my PC running Windows 10 either wired or wireless.

I realize will need to get the wireless adapters. However, what I am not sure is the USB speed
for these controllers. Does it really make a difference. The ports on the back are USB 2 and USB 3.


Even though the amount of data would less IO then a disk, I am concerned about latency and general performance etc.

Be interested on what people think?

USB 2.0
Wirelessly they are subject to all the same interferences as any other wireless device, so depends on how serious you are gaming.  You will always get a more reliable connection wired.
If you are used to the button layout it make perfect sense to use it on your PC too.
As you're running Win 10 you have the option for a BT connection too

It's Bluetooth wireless.  USB 2 will be fine.
