Rumor: Dualshock 4 Will Work Natively With PC
This could be a very useful feature if true.
While it wasn't impossible to get a Dualshock 3 to work as a gamepad on your PC it wasn't the kind of quagmire you wanted to get involved in unless you knew what you were doing.
The other day a redditor posted a second hand confirmation that the Dualshock 4 would work natively on the PC via USB. The source's information comes from a developer of Galak-Z: The Dimensional, a classic shooter by 17-Bit in development for Playstation 4 and PC, while on the show floor at PAX.
“Per this same dev, Galak-Z currently is not stable on the PS4. Thus they had PCs with DS4s 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'.”
This is great news if you are both a Playstation and a PC gamer. I know the old mouse and keyboard serves many gamers faithfully but some games just have to be played with a favorite controller in my opinion.
We do not yet have any confirmation that the Dualshock 4 will also work wirelessly via bluetooth or that the touchpad will function as it does with the PS4.
