Lenovo IdeaCentre Y710 Cube desktop will include built-in support for Xbox Wireless peripherals

In a Tuesday announcement, Will Tuttle – the Editor in Chief of Xbox Wire – said that built-in support for Xbox Wireless peripherals is coming to one of the gaming laptops just revealed by Lenovo --- the Lenovo IdeaCentre Y710 Cube desktop computer.

The announcement implies that Lenovo is Microsoft’s first official partner to offer built-in support for Xbox Wireless peripherals in its gaming desktop.

With Lenovo being the first other desktop manufacturer to whom Microsoft has licensed out the Xbox One’s wireless technology, Tuttle said in the Tuesday announcement that the owners of the Lenovo IdeaCentre Y710 Cube desktop will be able to seamlessly hook up an Xbox One controller; thanks to the wireless dongle technology which has been built straight into the desktop’s chassis.

In reference to the integration of Xbox Wireless adapter accessory into the actual chassis of the IdeaCentre Y710 Cube desktop, Microsoft said that, in the future, Xbox Wireless connectivity will become one of the components on motherboards which the company provides to its partners.

Microsoft is already working with several third-party peripheral manufacturers to produce devices which boast Xbox Wireless support. Some of these peripheral manufacturers include Astro, HyperX, Lenovo, Plantronics, Razer, SteelSeries, Mad Catz, PDP, and Turtle Beach.
