Xbox One Controller Will Be PC-Compatible... Eventually

Rumors have been circulating that Microsoft would not make the existing Xbox One controller compatible with PC, as the Xbox 360 controller is (and which I use for many games on PC). But Albert Penello, Microsoft Director of Product Planning, has swooped into the fray to correct the masses specifically on NeoGAF:
The rumor even goes as far as to claim that a dongle would be required for the Xbox One controller to work properly with the PC. Not necessarily, says Mr. Penello:
No. The controller (in wired mode) will work as-is.Microsoft is considering a dongle, however, in the case of wireless play:
NeoGAF (Chettlar):Hey, quick question, are you guys considering a dongle so we can play wirelessly on our PCs (like with the 360)? Is that a possibility in the future?Well, I guess I'll be using the Xbox One controller soon then. Let's see if some people start making mods that take advantage of those sensitive trigger buttons.
