Many PC gamers have used Microsoft's Xbox 360 Controller for years, and up until now those who wish to use a Sony DualShock 3 controller had to resort to using third party drivers to get things working correctly. In a recent tweet, Sony Computer Entertainment President, Shuhei Yoshida, confirmed that the DualShock 4 controller will work on PC out of the box.
Specifically, the controllers analog joysticks and buttons will work, but the more advanced features like the touchpad, lightbar, and speaker will not work on the PC without someone developing third party drivers. Yoshida said that we will have to wait to find out whether the DualShock 4 will be recognized as a generic gaming controller, or if Windows will be able to tell if it is a PS3 controller, which would be handy for games that are ported to the PS4.
