How Does DS4Windows Work?

DS4Windows is a utility designed to bring the Sony DualShock 4 game controllers into popular PC games that don’t specifically support it. The magic is done by mapping the DS4 into an emulated XBox controller.

This system is powerful as shown above – in our features panel. With it, you can map the controller the way you want, with default and per-game profiles, configuration of the light-bar, and much more – perfectly developed to support USB and Bluetooth connectivity.

Virtually everything on the DualShock 4 is supported – offering rumble support, touchpad mapping as mouse or any input and accelerometer and gyro mapping or server for other uses. 

Please note – DS4 audio only works on USB with generic BlueTooth dongles. If you want controller audio over wireless/BT, then an official Playstation BT Dongle is needed.


An ever growing application – DS4Windows has seen tremendous success worldwide since it’s initial release.
