PlayStation owners who would like to be able to use their DualShock 4 controllers on the PC are in for a treat. Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced the introduction of a wireless adaptor that will allow them to do just that.
The announce says that the Wireless Adaptor will enable all the functions and features of the DS4 controller; as long as the game being played supports them. On the surface, it looks like the $25 (about RM100) adaptor is being designed as a peripheral to support PlayStation Remote Play and the PlayStation Now service.
This is especially true as Sony Interactive Entertainment also announced that it will be bringing the PlayStation Now game streaming service to PC. Allowing PC gamers to stream and experience PlayStation games on their preferred platform. Interestingly, PS Now is only coming to PC; as a moderator on the PS Blog says that the company is still looking into Mac compatibility. Despite the fact that the promotional image clearly showing the adaptor connected to a MacBook.
At the moment, PlayStation Now is only available in a limited number of regions. Since it’s launch in 2015, the service has been restricted to the US, parts of Europe, and Japan. Whether this limitation means that the DS4 Wireless Adaptor is also being restricted to these regions is unknown.
