Shuhei Yoshida confirms the DualShock 4 will work with Windows for “basic functions”

If you’re into controllers and prefer the DualShock 3 for your PC gaming, you may be happy with the report that the DualShock 4 will have “basic functions” working in Windows. In a Tweet by Shuhei Yoshida, the functionality of the soon to be released DualShock 4 apparently includes being natively functioning with Windows as he said, “the analog sticks and buttons will work just fine.”

The P.E. Perspective: With the controller market getting more and more interesting with Steam’s new controller jumping on the hype train, it’s interesting to see that PC compatibility is native for the upcoming DS4. As a guy who just got a PS3 (see the feature article tomorrow) it’s been interesting to try controller gaming after over 25 years of PC gaming. But really…when will someone make a decent keyboard and mouse setup for these bloody consoles?
