Personally I think it's a step down from the X360 pad but wevs.

Currently, the Xbox One controller doesn’t officially support PC gaming, which is a bit disappointing given how popular the Xbox 360′s pad is for games that don’t work quite as well with keyboard and mouse.
We had expected Microsoft to update the pad eventually, making it work with Windows right out the box, but then rumour lifted its ugly head and dashed those hopes, with whisperers saying Microsoft instead intended to release a standalone PC pad, forcing cross-platform players to purchase two peripherals.
Happily, Microsoft’s Albert Penello took to NeoGAF to put paid to this bit of slander.
“This is 100% wrong. When the drivers become available, they will work with the existing controllers. There is no plan to do a new, separate controller that only works on Windows,” he said.
“It will be the same as it is on Xbox 360 – the Xbox One controller you have today will work. That’s not to say that we may not ship also PC SKU of the Xbox One controller, much like we do on Xbox 360.”
You won’t need any special adapter if you have a wired pad, he added.
“The controller (in wired mode) will work as-is. How wireless will/could work is TBD. There are some options we are looking at.
“No more updates on the timeframe beyond what’s been publicly stated – the plan is this year. When the update comes out and we have more details, I can explain the holdup.”
