    Among the best gamepads from the present generation of consoles is Sony's PlayStation 4's DualShock 4 controller. The fantastic news: Owners of a DS4 controller may utilize it to get virtually all gamepad-ready Windows games. The bad: Contrary to Microsoft's Xbox One gamepads, setting up the PS4 controller onto a PC requires somewhat more effort, at least when it comes to wireless usage. But do not worry, we will show you how to play your favorite games with all the PlayStation controller. Incidentally, this also works with both the older DualShock 4 control and the revised version published in 2016 using the PlayStation 4 Guru.

    Probably the easiest choice to utilize the DualShock 4 controller on the PC is that the use of a conventional USB cable. Not only can the DualShock 4 controller be charged through the micro USB port, but it may also be joined to the PC like any other USB device. Windows 10 admits the gamepad in a couple of seconds and you are able to use it. Especially in newer games or at the Big-Picture interface of Steam, you can now use the PS4 controller immediately. However, oftentimes, you want an additional setup with a tool like DS4Windows - more on this below.

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