For PC gamers who are also leaning towards getting a PlayStation 4, Sony has given you a little bit more reason to make the jump come November 15. The company has announced that the DualShock 4 controller will work with PC at launch with “basic functions” according to Sony Worldwide Studios head Shuhei Yoshida.
It’s unlikely that the new features of the DS4 — touchpad, light bar, etc. — will work with PC, but all of the buttons and analog sticks will work “just fine” according to the Sony head. Also, it’s unclear if any software or other third-party support will be needed for the controller to work with the PC. DualShock 3 controllers required third-party support to work properly with PC.
