Unfortunately, using the PS4 controller on PC isn't quite as easy as plugging in an Xbox gamepad. That's because the PS4 uses a generic driver called 'DirectInput' instead of the now-popular XInput. In this video I'll show you how to use your Xbox One controller with PS4 Remote play in case you're more familiar or like the Xbox controller better, like my.
Well, this is strange.
I just connected the Xbox One S controller to my PlayStation 4. That’s not something I ever expected to do. On August 2, Microsoft will launch the Xbox One S controller for $60, and — in what is an Xbox first — it features a Bluetooth radio. I’ve already connected it to my PC and Android tablet, but then I remembered that the PS4 uses Bluetooth as well. So I got everything set up, and … well, the Xbox One S controller does connect to the PS4.
Check it out:
Unfortunately, that connection doesn’t mean you can use the Xbox One S controller to interact with the PS4 in any way. Avery template 5160. I couldn’t get any input to register on the PS4 with my Xbox controller despite the system showing it connected as a gamepad.
Maybe I’m missing something, but I’m betting that the PS4 just doesn’t have the necessary Bluetooth drivers to get the Xbox One S pad working, and that’s probably not going to change.
