PS4 Controller supposedly works on PC
« on: October 07, 2013, 06:45:09 AM »
This is pretty cool news to me. I don't play an insane amount of games on PC and usually I like to use the mouse and keyboard, especially for first person shooters (prefer first person shooters on PC). But not being able to get my Dual Shock 3 to work on my PC has been kind of frustrating for the couple games I want to use it for. This is good news that I can just plug it in and go nuts. Though then again, this article states it only does "basic functions"...whatever the hell that means

Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida says the DualShock 4 will be able to perform "basic functions" on Windows PCs, and that "the analog sticks and buttons will work just fine."

The DualShock 4 controller will work on PCs at launch, Sony has said.

Speaking on Twitter, Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida said the new controller will be able to perform "basic functions" on Windows PCs, adding that "the analog sticks and buttons will work just fine".

Some of the more advanced features of the DualShock 4 controller, and perhaps unlikely to function via the PC, include a light bar, a capacitive touch pad, and motion sensing capabilities. The pad will be available at launch in black, red, and blue colours.

It is unclear if the controller will support PC out of the box, or will require additional drivers in order to function. The PlayStation 3's DualShock 3 controller did not include driver support for PC, though a few third-party workarounds are available.

Microsoft will also release an update for the upcoming Xbox One controller to make it compatible with the PC sometime in 2014.

The PlayStation 4 will launch on November 15 in North America for $399, and on November 29 in Europe for €399/£349.
