DualShock 4 rumored to be plug & play on PC

Written by David Stellmack

Said to come up as a standard USB controller

Rumors are circulating that the Sony DualShock 4 which was developed for the PlayStation 4 will function as a standard USB controller when connected to a PC. If this turns out to be true, it means that like Microsoft’s Xbox 360 game pad (we don’t know if the Xbox One game pad will work with a Windows PC as well, but it could.) the Sony controller would be able to be used to play the PC games that support a standard USB controller.

According to rumors, the touchpad of the DualShock 4 can be mapped just as the touchpad on your standard laptop. The DualShock 4 takes advantages of the built-in USB HID drivers and needs no additional driver support in Windows beyond what is already support in the OS natively.

Of course Sony could change the identifier on the USB controller prior to launch to make it incompatible without some sort of driver support, but that does seem to be unlikely at this point according to sources.
