    Among the best gamepads from the current generation of consoles is Sony's PlayStation 4's DualShock 4 control. The fantastic news: Providers 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 on a PC takes a bit more effort, at least in regards to wireless use. But do not worry, we will show you how to play your favourite games using the PlayStation controller. Incidentally, this works with both the old DualShock 4 control and also the revised version published in 2016 using the PlayStation 4 Guru.

    Probably the simplest 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 via the micro USB port, but it may also be connected to the PC like any other USB device. Windows 10 admits the gamepad in a couple of seconds and you can use it. Especially in newer games or in the Big-Picture port of Steam, you can now use the PS4 controller instantly. But oftentimes, you need an additional installation using a tool like DS4Windows - more about that below.

    Whether via cable or Bluetooth: You will find that the usage of this PS4 controller on the PC in several games isn't feasible or just faulty. The rationale: Microsoft uses the Xinput port on Windows to connect game controllers. Most games, therefore, call for a Xinput-compatible Gamecotnroller, like the Xbox One or Xbox 360 gamepads. Sony officially doesn't support Xinput, which is the reason why the PS4 controller isn't recognized by games like FIFA 19. That does not matter! Several programs jump into the breach. Probably the best is the free app DS4Windows, The open-source application 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 usually means that you can control virtually all controller-compatible Windows games with the DualShock 4 controller.
