Is the SHIELD Controller Compatible with Windows PCs?

The new SHIELD controller can be used as a wired USB game controller with Windows 7, 8, and 10 PCs equipped with GeForce GPUs and GeForce Experience software.

 

Steps to enable:

1) Update the firmware on the controller to v1.0 or later. This must be done on a SHIELD device.

2) Unpair the controller from SHIELD and then plug it into your PC.

3) Make sure you are using the latest version of GeForce Experience software.

 

Wireless Bluetooth support for GeForce-equipped PCs is coming later in 2017 for the new SHIELD controller.

 

SHIELD controller (2015) can also be used as a wired USB game controller with GeForce-equipped PCs running GeForce Experience software.
