It was recently revealed that the new PS 4 controller, DualShock 4, unlike its predecessor would work out of the box with PC.
Now a video has emerged which claims the Dual Shock 4 working with even the Xbox 360. However, there is a possibility that it could be a staged video. But if it is not, could that mean it would be compatible with the Xbox One also?
Microsoft Xbox 360’s gamepad got amazing exposure last generation as it gave tough competition to all other PC gamepads.
A lot of games came with built in support for the controller, fully loaded with on-screen button prompts and controls specifically displaying the Xbox’s gamepad layout. There were certain games that were solely designed keeping in mind the Xbox 360’s gamepad, rather than the keyboard or the mouse.
Obviously, Sony did not want to be left back in the gamepad race and as a result has already announced DualShock 4’s compatibility with PC games. And now this video has surfaced which claims DualShock 4’s compatibility with the Xbox 360 games too.
One thing to be worried about is that how a YouTube user got hold of a DualShock 4 almost a month before the launch of the PS 4. But weirder things have been happening recently. There was a new a while ago that some random kid has already got the Xbox one.
A JoyToKey, a Cronus dongle and the Cronus Bullseye Software are the main components behind this compatibility change. JoyToKey is a software used to convert the gamepad controls to keyboard and mouse controls. The Cronus Device is a USB adapter that allows the usage of any combination of controller and consoler- a PS3 on PC, Xbox 360 on a PS3, etc.
If the video is true, the DualShock 4 is going to give a tough competition to all the gamepads in the market.
