PS4 DualShock 4 controller will have native support in Steam on PC

Want to easily use the PS4 DualShock 4 controller for PC gaming? Valve has announced its Steam platform will natively support for the PS4 controller.

Jeff Bellinghausen of Valve’s Steam Controller team made the reveal at yesterday’s Steam Dev Days conference. The company is planning to add native support for other controllers as well.

“Believe it or not, when you use the PS4 Controller through the Steam API, it’s exactly the same as a Steam Controller,” said Bellinghausen. “You make the exact same API calls, you only get actions, not inputs, and the Steam API takes care of everything.”

“Now, why start with the PS4 controller? Well, not only is it a really nice, high quality controller, but it’s also got a gyro and a touchpad, so it’s got a lot of overlapping functionality with the Steam Controller,” explained Bellinghausen.”
