Among the best gamepads from the current generation of consoles would be Sony's PlayStation 4's DualShock 4 control. The good news: Owners of a DS4 controller can utilize it for almost all gamepad-ready Windows games. The bad: Contrary to Microsoft's Xbox One gamepads, preparing the PS4 controller on a PC takes a bit more effort, at least when it comes to wireless use. But don't worry, we will show you how to play your favorite games with the PlayStation controller. Incidentally, this also works with both the old DualShock 4 control and the revised version published in 2016 with the PlayStation 4 Pro.

Probably the easiest option to utilize the DualShock 4 controller on the PC is that the use of a conventional USB cable. Not only can the DualShock 4 control be charged through the micro USB port, but it may also be connected to the PC like any other USB device. Windows 10 admits the gamepad within a couple of seconds and you are able to use it. Especially in newer games or in the Big-Picture interface of Steam, now you can utilize the PS4 controller immediately. However, in many cases, you need an additional installation with a tool such as DS4Windows - more about that below.

Whether via cable or Bluetooth: You will find that the usage of this PS4 control on the PC in several games is not feasible or only faulty. The reason: 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 encourage Xinput, which is why the PS4 controller isn't recognized by games such as FIFA 19. That doesn't make a difference! Several apps jump into the breach. Probably the best is the free program 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 almost all controller-compatible Windows games using the DualShock 4 control.
