After several years of playing console games, the sensation of using a kouse and keyboard again has become pretty damn alien to me. Fortunately, most controllers these days work on a Windows platform. And it looks like the Playstation 4 Dual Shock controller will also boast some connectivity. But there’s a catch.
According to a tweet via Joystiq from Sony Computer Entertainment el presidente Shuhei Yoshida, you’ll be able to use the Dual Shock 4 “for basic functions” on your PC.
@Napo2k for basic functions, yes

What does that mean? According to to Yoshida, don’t expect to be using that controller touch pad to fondle your way through your current library of games. Still, knowing the PC crowd, it won’t take too long for someone to cook some drivers up to take advantage of the Dual Shock 4. It’s a bloody nice controller, and I’m certain that plenty of you chaps got to try it out over the weekend at rAge.
Now if only I could get used to using a damn mouse and keyboard again…
