Playstation 4’s DualShock 4 Will Work ‘Just Fine’ On The PC For Basic Functions

PS4 DualShock 4

A lot of our readers wondered whether the DualShock 4 would work on the PC or whether Sony would have to release some drivers for it. Well, good news everyone as Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios, confirmed today that the controller will work just fine on the PC for basic functions.

When a fan asked about DS4 and whether Sony would release a driver to use DS4 with windows, Shuhei had this to say:

Shuhei then confirmed that DS4 will be compatible with Windows for default functions and only. This means that all buttons and analog sticks will work fine on the PC platform (without the need of installing a driver).

Happy times for some of our fans we guess. So there you have it everyone – DS4 will be officially compatible with Windows (note: for basic functions).
