PS4 Controller Supposedly Works With Xbox 360

A YouTube user has posted a video claiming that the DualShock 4 controller works with Xbox 360 consoles.

The story is too old to be commented.

Lol.. cool. why would anyone want that too? relearn in game the button functions too?

cleft51176d ago

This is too hilarious. At the same time it is so odd, but it's also really cool technology as well. Even my 360 is hyping me for the PS4 now. Too good.

Baylex1176d ago

LOL this is too funny ahah
Imagine if DualShock 4 works on the X1?? ahah Sony would sell controllers like hot cakes

gaffyh1176d ago

If true, expect MS to block it in their next update. They aren't in the business of making their competitors money, and Sony would do the same if the Xbone controller works on PS3 or PS4.

What are you talking about? Microsoft is already going to pay for the Blu-ray royalties, just as they did for the DVD royalties on the original Xbox.

Finally I got my answer. I proposed this question a couple days ago. Too bad I'm done playing current gen to try this out.

And controllers are too expensive now. I usually go solo for a while when I get the launch system. Especially now when I can just go online for multiplayer. Local multiplayer is pretty weak these days

Surprised it doesn't work natively, without the workarounds this guy is using.

The DS4 is like any other 3rd party controller once plugged in. Just like how it works on PC and is easily/instantly recognized as a controller.

I never thought about this till now but it makes perfect sense.

Eh? They could use it for beat em ups? The d-pad on the DS4 is brilliant.

smoothop1176d ago

If you're into beat em ups just use an arcade stick, both d-pads are crap for fighters its that simple.

OlgerO1176d ago

Dont you think that it is great that xbox 360 users can now experience the greatest controller ever made ?

Septic1176d ago

Well hold your horses there. 'the greatest controller ever made'? Maybe in your opinion but lets not get too far ahead of ourselves.

Codey471176d ago

Septic, pissing on peoples bonfires since 2011 :P

Rayansaki1176d ago

@Septic, at the very least they now have a proper controller to play fighting games...

s8anicslayer1176d ago

Also a better build quality than the 360 controller as well.

Wonder why he's not testing the sticks? I think the X1 d-Pad has microswitches which would be great for fighters...

MasterCornholio1176d ago

For fighting games?

We all know how horrible the Xbox 360s Dpad is for those sorts of games.

sigfredod1176d ago

Finally a good d-pad for fighting games on the xbox360

isarai1176d ago

i can tell you for a fact that MS is going to patch the crapppp out of this. still the coolest thing ever regardless. theres also a video of the controller working with mac, which means theres solid workarounds to make it also work with PC.

you could literally use 1 controller for 4 different platforms.

Mikelarry1176d ago

i doubt ms will care because if they can allow the xbox one to work with the ps4 i don't see them caring for this.

MASTER_RAIDEN1176d ago

completely different situation though. MS will not lose any money on having the xbone work with ps4. they WILL potentially lose a lot of money if a ps4 controller works with their console though.

OrangePowerz1176d ago

That wouldn`t be a good idea, because that would mean they patch out every wired controller support. It works because the PS4 controller is recognized as a generic controller, the same reason why it works on PC, Mac and PS3.

s8anicslayer1176d ago

It would be cool if it did actually work though.
