[Playstation Blog] PlayStation Now Coming to PC, DualShock 4 USB Wireless Adaptor Unveiled - Page 2

post #11 of 23
Good stuff, I really like this.

I do wonder why they're charging $25 for a wireless adapter though, Microsoft are doing the same thing for the Xbox One wireless adapter too.

My Asus BT211 adapter was great and had no trouble with the DS3 or DS4 and that was about £10.

I suppose production costs could be apart of it, it also has support for stereo audio and all of the other DualShock 4 features, I don't think the unofficial software and hardware support the audio features, it also looks really nice too.

Anyway, it's good to get official driver support for the Dualshock 4 controller.

Man, tough to be a console peasant nowadays. Less and less exclusives, paying more for air and very quick hardware aging.

Dear EA,

Now that Xbox and Playstation games are making their way to the PC, bring Madden to PC next year and I'll forget everything you've done to PC gaming. We can start over fresh. Ok?

They have their reasons why its not on PC. The hard truth? Sales. It sells like a boss on console and PC is not worth it to them obviously. Piracy would also be easy on PC. So, between those 2. You wont see it on PC any time soon if ever.

Dualshock only as far as I know. All games coded for Dualshocks.

One would probably still need Xim4 or another hardware like that to use mouse and keyboard on PSnow for PC.

EA games sell pretty well on PC, The Sims series are some of the best selling PC games of all time, they've also supported PC Gaming quite a lot in recent years too and some of their recent titles have shipped with Denuvo so piracy isn't a problem.

They can sell it through the Windows 10 Store. That should be enough of a walled garden to put their mind at ease.
