    PS4 Controller works natively with PC




    LevelSave.com The PlayStation 4's Dualshock 4 Will (Reportedly) Work on Computers | LevelSave.com


    According to Redditor dzle, the developers of Galak-Z confirmed last weekend at PAX Prime in Seattle that all PlayStation 4 controllers will work on computers simply by plugging them in via the micro-usb connector without any finagling. It is also reported that the touchpad will also be able to be mapped like the touchpad on your everyday laptop. If this all comes to be true, the PlayStation 4 may just become the next generation controller you have to have for PC gaming.

    According to the Redditor, “Galak-Z currently is not stable on the PS4. Thus they had PCs with DS4s [Dualshock 4's] on the show floor running the game. I asked if this implied the PS4 controller works on PC, which he said ‘yes it works as a regular USB controller’.” Also implying that the PlayStation 4′s Dualshock 4 will work as a simple plug-and-play controller, possibly even with bluetooth (if we’re lucky.)

    As it stands, most gamers prefer the Xbox 360 controller for the most comfortable computer gaming – we’ll have to see how that opinion fares come November 22nd when both competitors consoles go head to head.

    We’ve reached out to Galak-Z and Sony to confirm this and will update should we hear back.

    i wouldn't do that yet because the ds4 could be a crap controller.


    The 360/wiiu controllers are still the best in my book. Till i touch a DS4 my opinion will stay that way.

    Every single publication that has had their hands on the DualShock 4 has said it is better than the DS3 in every way. Since the DS3 is currently my favorite controller and I really like what I see with the DS4, I think it is fairly safe to say the DS4 isn't a crap controller.

    This news make me a happy man. Never been very fond of having to use a driver to use the DualShock 3 nor of having to borrow a 360 controller. Now we just have to wait and see if it is actually true.

    This will help come in handy once I get a PS4 with two controllers to save money from buying a 3rd party PC controller.

    I disagree. I much prefer the DualShock to the 360 controller.

    Sounds awesome, but anyone who plays first person shooters on PC without a mouse shouldn't be playing first person shooters on PC.

    I owned a 360 for 3 years and still prefer the Ps3 controller because of the analog sticks.

    Obviously, and no one on his right mind would choose a controller over a mouse+keyboard when playing an RTS, but still, a nice addition for action adventure games.

    Have never heard that in my life..
    I prefer the M+K over a controller on most games.

    Seems like that my only issue with them would be in flying and driving games.

    Not altogether unexpected given the shift to an X86-based system architecture, but a pleasant surprise for the PC nubs incapable of using a mouse and keyboard.

    I love my PlayStation gear, but I use a 360 controller these days for all of my gaming, including PS3. I prefer the weight and more generous size of the 360 controller - there's less slipping on the analog sticks which may have more to do with the concave tip than the shape of the controller.
