Steam Will Soon Support PS4 Controller

Valve officially announced that they are planning to support Dualshock controller 4 for Steam.

According to Valve’s Jeff Bellinghausen, Steam’s dev team is already working on natively supporting the PS4 controller on Steam.

“Believe it or not, when you use the PS4 Controller through the Steam API, it’s exactly the same as a Steam Controller. You make the exact same API calls, you only get actions, not inputs, and the Steam API takes care of everything,” Bellinghausen said.

“Not only is it a really nice, high-quality controller, but it’s also got a gyro and a touchpad, so it’s got a lot of overlapping functionality with the Steam Controller,” he added.

Though this move is not new to gamers as there is Input Mapper software that you can download for free for you to be able to use PS4 controllers on PC, and just recently, Sony released PlayStation 4 Wireless USB Adapter for you to be able to use DS4 controller on PC, this is still a bold move for Valve for supporting other controllers as they have their own gaming controller.

Valve will also support other controllers aside from PS4 controller but no words yet on what controller and when, so make sure to always stay tuned here for more updates regarding this news.
