Connecting DUALSHOCK wireless controllers to PC

Connecting a DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller to a Windows PC can be achieved via Bluetooth or a compatible Micro USB cable. To use a DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller with PS Now, connect using a micro USB cable.

Where are the START and SELECT buttons for PS3 games?

We have mapped these PS3 commands to the DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller touchpad. Click the left side for SELECT and the right for START, just like the DualShock 3 controller. Make sure that you click the touchpad as this will not work if you touch or tap it.


Connecting DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller to PS4

To pair your DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller with your PS4 system, connect the controller via USB. Once paired, you can then use the controller wirelessly.
