According to the video above, the PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 controller might be used with PCs as well. Since the PlayStation 4 controller uses bluetooth, which many PCs (especially laptops) support, it’s a simple matter of creating drivers that make it possible to use the controller.
The video is from EA’s office in Sweden, showing some Need For Speed Rivals gameplay running on a PC laptop, played with the DualShock 4 controller.
The Xbox 360 controller was able to be hacked for use on PCs, and Microsoft went as far as releasing a dedicated PC version of the Xbox 360 controller. It’s unlikely Sony will go that far. However, owners of the new Ouya indie console will be able to use the PlayStation 4 controller.
The DualShock 4 controller ships with each PlayStation 4, and will also be sold separately for $60. Recently, Sony confirmed that the “LED light bar” on the controller cannot be turned off (for some reason).
