1) The Microsoft XBox One Controller + Cable (Wireless or Wired) for Windows is on sale, about $20 cheaper than the normal Wireless Xbox One controller. From my understanding, it's literally just the normal wireless controller + wire.
However, I can't seem to find out if it's the newer 3.5mm one. On the Microsoft web store, they have 2 editions.
So is there a 3.5mm jack version of the controller that comes with the cable? Since it's cheaper, I want to pricematch, but I'm not sure if it even exists.
I ordered one from Walmart (after price matching) and it says it features a 3.5mm jack: http://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/microsoft-xbox-controller-cable-for-windows/6000196488062
Just got it today, and it doesn't have the 3.5mm jack. It's the old one.
2) If I buy a normal wireless 3.5mm Xbox One Controller, can I plug it into my computer using any cheap micro USB cable, and will it require batteries or just power itself through the cable? That's the main reason I want the Xbox Controller with the wire, along with the price reduction.
3) Anyone have problems with the microUSB cable becoming loose? Reading that it happens frequently for the Xbox One controller.
