According to a report today from VG 24/7, Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida said the PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 controller would work on a Windows PC when the next-gen console launches in November.
Yoshida took to Twitter to answer queries on whether the DualShock 4 would work with Windows PC, to which the Sony boss said the analog sticks will work “just fine” and it will have compatibility for basic functions.
In terms of compatibility, according to to Joystiq, it’s uncertain if Windows will recognize the DualShock 4 as itself because many non-Microsoft controllers feature the XInput API.
DualShock 3 controllers didn’t have an XInput, which basically turns the non-Microsoft controllers into an Xbox controller.
When questioned further on Twitter about the compatibility issue, Yoshida said “wait for field report after the launch.”
Yoshida also took to Twitter to reveal that the “PS4 Link” app would be coming with the next PS Vita system update.
The tool, which will come out for iOS and Andriod, is a PS4 download manager and communications tool.
