Next gen will work on next gen

There's an interesting tidbit about the next generation Xbox over at Paul Thurott's blog. Last week at the Windows Hardware Engineering Conference, it was announced that the next generation Xbox controller will work with Longhorn (the next version of Windows). This is a nice announcement as it means that PC Gamers will finally get to use their game controllers with their PC's without having to splice cables or use third party drivers. What's really interesting about this is the next generation Xbox controllers are supposed to be wireless, you have to wonder if MS is going to be selling some kind of adapter (they've got to make money on this somehow).
