General information

Official PlayStation website


Use with PC platforms[edit]


Connecting the controller should automatically download and install latest drivers for the controller.


This controller is "Plug and Play" on most distributions of Linux.


Can be recognized as Xbox 360 controller but after manual assignment. Controller cannot be found in Supported Controller Database, so Steam recognizes it as standard DirectInput device.

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.
