One of the things I love about the Xbox 360 controllers is that you can plug it into a PC and it works. I use a Razer Sabertooth with my living room PC and Steam in big picture mode to play a lot of controller supported games this way. Some though prefer the PlayStation controller, but it does take some hacks to get that working on the PC.
For the PlayStation 4 and the DualShock 4
, you'll be able to do the same as well. Shuhei Yoshida of Sony has tweeted out
that the dual analog sticks and buttons will work on the PC, thus opening the doors for that group of gamers to use the controller. Great news and one that I didn't expect.
