GearNuke: Sony's Shuhei Yoshida had confirmed that Dualshock 4 controller will work for PC but we never knew how it will actually work. A new video shows the controller being connected to PC and working out of the box.
Great..I plan on picking up one of these pretty soon just for my PC set-up. Really hope that there is great support for it from developers across the industry, because the only genres I plan on playing with KB/M are FPS and RPG/MMORPG games. Everything else like action, 3rd person shooter, exc. will be played with my controller. Excited for this next-generation of games. :DD
I hope that games automatically detect the controller and change the button layout like it does with my PC-360 controller. and just like you this is good for 3rd person action games obviously k/m is for my BF4 and what have you :)
I know for a fact that games like FFXIV:ARR on pc automatically detect 360/ps3 controllers (when set up using a driver that emulates a 360 controller) and have button layouts for both a/b/x/y and x/circle/square/triangle...So I think it is safe to assume they were already on that page when they developed the game and I think it is also safe to assume a lot of games that are in development are already working on it too.
I hope so too, but that's all up to the developers and ofc the amount of support from Sony, hopefully they'll release first party software for this, wireless dongle and all that. I played Dark Souls with the 360 controller, and what a piece of crap that was, it might work for shooters but for everything else it's a clunky piece of crap.
This is available at some Gamestop stores right now.
not sure why anyone would want to plug thier ps4 controller into a pc. Mouse and keyboard are the best. But if you want a controller for shooters, xbox controllers are better for those.
I don't care about what's better unless it's FPS or RPG genre. I'll still be more comfortable with a controller for quite awhile because I've only been playing on KB/M for 4 months compared to over 12 years on controllers. Playing with them is in-grained into my brain. Also, I think you're living on the past with the controller argument. From what I've heard, the DS4 is better than the XB1 controller with the improved triggers making a really great impression across the industry whilst people have said that the controller doesn't feel nearly as good as the 360 controller and the RT and LT buttons are extremely awkwardly placed. The DS3 was already better at every other genre besides FPS and now it appears that the field has been leveled with the shooters, which would make the DS4 the best controller on the market. Honestly, the only thing you have are the impulse triggers, which quite frankly is just a distraction. But that's just my opinion...
do you ever heard of emulation?
I use my 360 controller with my PC for emulating PS2, PSP, and other retro games because some of them just don't feel right with a keyboard/mouse. If the PS4 controller works with PC well, i may grab one, but chances are it will be nowhere near as compatible as an xbox controller.
Have you played games like dark souls on pc with a kb and mouse? It's miserable. I am a pc guy, and always choose kb and mouse over controller, but for dark souls 2? I am using a DS4.
You're just ignorant. Try playing Arkham with a keyboard or mouse. Or Dark Souls.
Dualshock 4 works with the PC from the get go... X1's controller only works with the PC next year when Microsoft releases their drivers. Even for THEIR OPERATING SYSTEM WINDOWS the X1 controller will only work in 2014. Another f**kup in a long list of f**kups by Microsoft. It looks like they are intentionally trying too lose next gen console sales.
I really would love to know if this controller is compatible with android tablets. Nexus 7 2013
It will work on my Macbook also!!!
I have been using my DS3 via motionjoy/Xpadder for years. I am really hoping devs get behind supporting the DS4 on PC games in the future.
Hi, what usb cable would I have to purchase to use this on PC. Because I believe it doesn't come with a usb cable when bought seperately. The connection on the usb cable going into the DS4 on the video seems a lot bigger than the one used for the DS3. Anyone any idea, tnx
USB Micro B.
Thanks dude ;)
Hi M-M, Is this the one? Its a usb 3.0 A to Micro B cable. http://www.videk.co.uk/sect...
No problem, that's the one. It was confirmed by Shuhei on Twitter today.
Typical Sony, they don't care if you want to multi-purpose their products. Now if this was MS......
I am a big Sony fan, but MS did allow the 360 controller to work on PC with no problems(I personally don't like it, sticks are all wrong). If anything Sony were the ones who locked down the DS3 for use on PC. It's only because of some enterprising people that we have Montionjoy for PC, which allows the DS3 to work on PC.
Eh? The Xbox pad works on PC through plug and play. No surprise, they're both MS. This is actually the first time a PS pad has worked without some form of 3rd party software (MotionJoy). Trolling is the easiest thing in the world and your still failing. Edit: beaten :)
Unfortunately if you look closer at the screen you'll notice that is Ubuntu (linux for you console guys) running an application called jstest-GTK which is a calibration utility and open source driver utility all in one. It's not running in that video without a third party driver at least when being used in Linux. http://pingus.seul.org/~gru...
How about the other way around? Will a keyboard and mouse be compatible with the PS4?
No but you can find many reports on KB/M support possibly coming for the Xbox One console. http://www.gamespot.com/art... Steam is going console-like and will have its own controller... PS4 controller has PC support... Xbox One may be possible with KB/M... I don't understand Games Industry anymore :P
I would assume so, since the PS1 had support for an official mouse peripheral, the PS2 had keyboard & mouse support for various games and the PS3 had universal keyboard & mouse support for both USB and Bluetooth devices, yet only like two games ever used it due to lazy developers. But no idea if it's been confirmed or not... It would be stupid if it wouldn't support it. I used my Logitech usb wireless keyboard all the time to send messages to people.
Yea. But it sure beat the crap out of using the gamepad when you have to input text.
I'm gonna buy one as soon as possible now!
Can it work wirelessly ?
