Connecting 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 compatible USB cable.

Where are the START and SELECT buttons for PS3 games?

We have mapped these PS3 commands to the 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 wireless controllers to PS5 and PS4 consoles

To pair your wireless controller with your PS5 or PS4 console, connect the controller via USB. Once paired, you can then use the controller wirelessly.
