Among the best gamepads in the present generation of consoles is Sony's PlayStation 4's DualShock 4 control. The fantastic news: Providers of a DS4 controller may use it for almost all gamepad-ready Windows games. The bad: Unlike Microsoft's Xbox One gamepads, setting up the PS4 controller onto a PC requires a bit more effort, at least in regards to wireless use. But don't worry, we'll demonstrate how to play your favorite games using all the PlayStation controller. Incidentally, this works with both the older DualShock 4 controller and the revised version published in 2016 with the PlayStation 4 Pro.

Probably the easiest option to utilize the DualShock 4 control on the PC is that the usage of a traditional USB cable. Not only can the DualShock 4 controller be billed through the micro USB port, but it can also be connected to the PC like any other USB device. Windows 10 recognizes the gamepad in a couple of seconds and you can use it. Especially in newer games or at the Big-Picture port of Steam, now you can utilize the PS4 controller instantly. But oftentimes, you want an extra installation using a tool like DS4Windows - more about that below.

Whether through cable or Bluetooth: You will discover that the use of this PS4 controller on the PC in many games isn't possible or just faulty. The rationale: Microsoft employs the Xinput interface on Windows to join game controllers. Most games, therefore, call for a Xinput-compatible Gamecotnroller, such as the Xbox One or Xbox 360 gamepads. Sony officially does not encourage Xinput, which explains the reason why the PS4 controller is not recognized by games such as FIFA 19. That does not matter! Several apps jump into the breach. Probably the best is the free app DS4Windows, The open-source tool trickles Windows into thinking that the connected PS4 controller is an Xbox gamepad. This works with both the wired and the Bluetooth variant. In practice, this means that you can control virtually all controller-compatible Windows games with the DualShock 4 control.
