Sony has confirmed that its DualShock 4 controller will work with Windows PCs out of the box, but will only have compatibility "for basic functions" according to President of Worldwide Studios for Sony Computer Entertainment, Shuhei Yoshida.




Yoshida confirmed the news through Twitter, after he was asked if Sony would release a driver for the DualShock 4 controller to make it work with Windows. Yoshida tweeted back, saying "the analog sticks and buttons will work just fine." He was asked if the DS4 would feature Windows compatibility by default, where he said it would, but with "basic functions."
