Key points

Requires adapter to connect to PC.
Lacks native XInput support, requiring the use of a XInput wrapper (see Windows) for games that do not support DirectInput or the controller natively.

Controller variations[edit]

The Dual Analog Controller is an earlier variant of the DualShock controller, having different L2 and R2 buttons and different rumble circuit (not available in European and American markets). See Dual Analog Controller.

Use with PC platforms[edit]

Windows[edit]

XInput wrapping[edit]

Acting as native DirectInput controller, it's possible to use any of the generic wrappers. See the controller article for those.

Hardware[edit]

Mayflash SS/N64/PS2 Controller Adapter for PC USB[edit]

Just plug and play, no driver needed.
Compatible with Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP, Vista and Windows 7, Windows 8 32 bit and 64 bit, Windows 10.
Only for one player.

Bliss-Box Gamer-Pro[edit]

Directly compatible with PC. No driver needed, just plug and play.

Support in games[edit]

Games with generic DirectInput support are supported by the controller, however button placements may be out of place and need to be rebound. Refer to game-specific articles for rebinding support.

Games with DualShock button prompts[edit]

Please note, that this is only list for games that offer DualShock button prompts.
Some may require use of DualShock 4, which right now isn't possible to emulate. Refer to game-specific articles for details.
