Why would they need to? You can already use an xbox one controller on PC. You just have to download the firmware.

Uh....is "dongle" the official MS stamped name for that thing? Lol.

[Edit:] On topic, when they do release one, I hope it's a simple compact USB stick shaped reciever. Don't really see the purpose of having it on a wire. Sync button only needs to be pressed once, so it's not like you'd have to continually press it n get behind your tower (assuming you don't use the front slots).

When I got my 360 dongle, I had to get this off-brand one, which is fine with me, because I was told at pretty much every retailer that MS didn't sell one seperate from the "PC controller pack" which has the controller+dongle. Gave me a few issues initially but quickly found a fix online and it's been perfect ever since. This time it won't matter as I don't have an X1 yet, so the first X1 controller I'll get will be one bundled with the dongle (assuming they release one--which I'm like 99% positive they will).

Just hope it's sooner than later, I'm itching for an upgrade, but my setup is wireless for a reason. How long are the charger cords, anyone know off the top of their head?

No it's just what it's called. Any wireless device that requires another piece to be plugged in the plugged in piece is a dongle. Most of the time it's a USB plug.
