What do I need to get to use a Xbox One controller with a PC? Just the controller and a long micro USB cable? Can I go wireless? If not, is the Play & Charge kit completely pointless for PC users?

It's currently only possible to use them wired through microUSB (it uses a proprietary wireless solution, and not the same one as 360). You need special drivers, which will either be distributed over Windows Update or you can snag them directly from
