Windows will support PlayStation 4 controller

Written by

Reading time is around minutes.

In the exchange of messages with players on Twitter, president of Sony Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida confirmed that the DualShock 4 gamepad will be supported from the start in Windows, and the players will be able, without any additional drivers, to use the analog sticks.

It remains unknown whether the new DualShock will be recognized as DualShock 4, since many modern gamepas support XInput, which is why they are recognized as the Xbox 360 controller. The current generation of DualShock does not support XInput, and this change could be a positive move for all the players who have at some point met with limited compatibility of their favorite gamepad in certain games.

Yoshida explained that the gamepad without drivers support "basic functions", but it is unclear which those function are, adding that for the details we will have to wait for the release of the PlayStation 4, which should appear on store shelves (in the US) on 15th November.
