Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida has confirmed via Twitter that the PS4’s gamepad will be compatible with Windows for “basic functions.”
In response to inquiries about said functionality, he specifically pointed out that “the buttons and joysticks will work just fine”…
However, there’s no word on whether the drivers will allow PC games to automatically see it as a DualShock 4; as you may know, the DualShock 3 lacks XInput, and Yoshida didn’t elaborate as to whether the DS4 supported it, stating that we should “wait for field report after the launch.”
There you have it.
The PS4 launches on November 15 in North America and on November 29 in Europe.
