Very nice as this will come in handy if you receive a "BRICKED" PS4 then at least you can use the DS4 to play on your PC!

[yes I know a little insensitive but all in fun]

I will hunt for a DS4 on sale or a nice Red DS4 to buy for my HTPC! My Logitech and DS3 are getting old and YES the PC Elitist uses a controller from time to time especially when I sit on the couch and PC Game on my big screen.

Butt hurt console gamers disliked your comment.

Why can't you numbskulls get that people with laptops/PC's can plug in their controller and play their PC games on it, along emulators.Without being restricted to a mouse for gaming?

just because you can plug a controller into a pc does not mean the game is calibrated for a controller, planetside 2 is a perfect example it is complete trash with a controller

People who choose to use controllers in an online PC FPS should be banned from the internet.

So it's a sin to use a controller in a pc fps? Kind of reminds me of the episode of south park with the fat nerd owning everybody with a mouse a keyboard. I love my ps4 but I like to play my pc games with a controller sitting on my couch with my 1080p tv

Don't listen to some of these idiots. Like the guy states above planetside 2 has crappy pad support yet i still went on there and owned it because of my playstyle.
Don't get me wrong a mouse an keboard is better once you master it but if your already used to a pad you'll be better than your average player with m+k.

As long as your having fun and comfortable thats all that matters.

Works great! Now I don't have to use x360ce either.

So much fuss when you can buy a Xbox controller and just plug it in and play.

If you already have a PS4 controller though, it's the best option

Plus some may prefer this to the 360 controller
