This is the case of the DualSense, the innovative control of Sony’s new generation machine. Although the Japanese company has not developed specific drivers for PCs, it is compatible. Of course, it loses haptic functions and other functionalities. It also works on Android, so throughout this article we will show you how to connect the remote to these devices. Next, we tell you how to connect the remote to a computer or to an Android or iOS mobile device.
How to connect the controller to PC
In order to connect your DualSense to the PC by cable, you need a USB-C that has USB-A output (the standard one, to understand us better). The console includes a unit in the pack, so in principle you should not have major problems. Of course, the controls sold separately do not include it in the box. Once you have the cable in your hands, just connect the USB-C to the remote and the USB-A output to the computer. The PC will detect it and you can play your games with the DualSense.
