How to Connect the PlayStation 4 Controller to Your PC [Video]

After Yousef’s tutorial video on how to connect the Xbox One controller to the PC, we started getting a lot of requests to do the same for the PS4 controller. Well, I have acquired a PlayStation 4 controller, so let’s get it hooked up.


  • PlayStation 4 Controller
  • microUSB Data Cable (like the one that came with the controller)
  • DS4 Windows tool
  • ~4GB of free space on your C: Drive (thanks to Microsoft .NET)
