With the latest update of DS4Windows, this is as close as we're getting for now to native DualSense support in Windows. We go hands-on with the update to see what it brings to the table.
DualSense works with PS3, Switch & PC but not PS4 Get on that fix Sony
New Xbox controller > DS5. And also Xbox One controller > DS5.
Said no one ever.
What's a DS5?
Lol, I mean, you can say that, but no one seems to agree.
The buttons on the Xbox don’t feel flimsy like the DS5. The DS5 still has bad charge, one session and you need to plug it in. The D-pad on the DS5 is flimsy which creates a dead zone. The triggers just aren’t as smooth as the Xbox when you press down.
lol I wouldn't go that far. That is purely your opinion.
@Lightningmonkey The Dualsense 5, which shall release when the PS10 comes out in 2050. Apparently this guy has already used it and knows that the current gen Xbox controllers are better than it.
You have a right to your own opinion pal.
^haha you smarty pants know I’m referring it as a the DualShock 5. And it’s pretty silly you guys only think it’s better because it’s PlayStation and the gimmicky features with the rumble and the Mic. Astrobot is nice, but the “meat and potatoes” of the controller is the form factor, the buttons, build quality, and the feel of the buttons, and the tightness of the buttons. And Xbox may very will be better than the dual sense 5, because from DualShock 3 to to Dual Shock 5 it’s been a letdown.
Biggest lie ever. Get out.
Whatever you are drinking bud ain't cool lemonade :)
Wow it really works
Hopefully there's a steam update coming
You can already get it to work on steam if you boot to big picture mode. I've been using it to play Phasmophbia.
They said their working on the haptics, so I imagine it's only a matter of time before it has full support.
If you use the Steam beta client you can use it on Steam plug and play. The recent update is fixed force feedback on Bluetooth mode so it works flawlessly. The only feature that doesn't work is the adaptive triggers which no PC games use anyways. If you want to adjust the color of the light you have to played plugged to the USB though.
Pretty nice but, I have my 360 controller for windows and only use it with games like GTA. Not spending 70+ on another controller for haptic feedback when I hardly even care about simple rumble. Don't need all that where I just want to play the games and don't care about if the controller gives me feedback.
This is wonderful to hear. The team at DS4 has always been working hard and deserve more recognition.
"While the Steam update for DualSense support was good, this DS4Windows update is amazing. I say this as this adds support for all PC games." As it stands the Steam update is currently better since it supports Bluetooth pairing and all features (except adaptive triggers) work. A workaround for non Steam games is adding the non-Steam game to the Steam library and launching it through there. That's how I've been using the Dualsense with Epic games. Also PSA: On Steam the TouchPad click function (usually reserved for maps) is actually mapped to the Share/create button since that is not a function needed on Pc.
My DS4 just packed in this week. I was hoping to hold out for a black dualsense
