PlayStation controllers now have support for connecting to Steam games for PC
The latest update to the Steam platform brings new features to allow users to more easily find games that support PlayStation DualShock and DualSense controllers. This means that PlayStation controllers are now finally getting support for some Steam PC games.
Valve, the company behind the Steam platform, announced via a blog that users can now provide more accurate information about the support their PlayStation controllers have for certain games. Among other things, the latest Steam update introduces a number of new menus and pop-ups that allow players to know the exact level of support their controller has for certain gaming titles.
Improvements include: an improved controller-friendly hub, display of supported controller types on store pages, new search filters, a compatibility section in the game library, a controller configuration button, and new filters in the library.
This transparency makes it easier for users to take advantage of the unique features of the DualSense controller, such as customizable triggers and haptics, of course in games that support them, in a much clearer way. Now that support has been rolled out, the list of supported games is likely to grow even more in the coming months and years.
For those who like to play PC games using a controller, the Microsoft Xbox peripheral has been the most popular accessory until now, but many PC titles simply did not support PlayStation controllers. At least that was true if you don’t use third-party software that would eventually enable you to do so. Due to the novelty, now controller fans on PC titles definitely have an extra reason to rejoice.
