DS4Windows

One of the best gamepads in the present generation of consoles would be Sony's PlayStation 4's DualShock 4 controller. The fantastic news: Owners of a DS4 controller may utilize it to get almost all gamepad-ready Windows games. The bad: Contrary to Microsoft's Xbox One gamepads, setting up the PS4 controller on a PC takes somewhat more effort, at least in regards to wireless use. But don't worry, we'll show you how to play your favourite games using the PlayStation controller. Incidentally, this works with both the older DualShock 4 controller and the revised version released in 2016 with the PlayStation 4 Pro.

Probably the simplest option to use the DualShock 4 controller on the PC is the use of a traditional USB cable. Not only can the DualShock 4 controller be charged via the micro USB port, but it can also be joined to the PC like any other USB device. Windows 10 recognizes the gamepad within a couple of seconds and you are able to use it. Especially in newer games or at the Big-Picture port of Steam, now you can utilize the PS4 controller immediately. However, oftentimes, you want an extra installation using a tool such as DS4Windows - more about that below.

Whether through cable or Bluetooth: You will discover that the use of the PS4 control on the PC in many games isn't feasible or just faulty. The reason: Microsoft employs the Xinput interface on Windows to connect game controls. Most games, therefore, require a Xinput-compatible Gamecotnroller, such as the Xbox One or Xbox 360 gamepads. Sony officially doesn't encourage Xinput, which explains why the PS4 controller is not recognized by games such as FIFA 19. That does not matter! Several programs jump into the breach. Possibly the best is that the free app DS4Windows (http://ds4tool.com/), 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.
