Steam will fully support DualShock 4 controllers on PC


Valve has revealed that it will be adding native DualShock 4 support on Steam, reports Gamasutra.

Valve’s Jeff Bellinghausen announced the feature at the company’s Steam Dev Days event.

Steam will be adding support for a number of controllers, with the DualShock 4 simply being the first to get full native support.

Bellinghausen stated that the DualShock 4 has similar functionality to the Steam Controller, allowing the Steam API to easily support the device.

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

“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.”

The company has not mentioned which other controllers it plans to add support for.
