This is pretty nifty.
Sony today announced its DualShock 4 USB Wireless Adapter, which will allow any Mac or PC to use a DualShock 4 controller as well as have full functionality with it, including the buttons, analog sticks, touch pad, light pad, motion sensors, vibration, and stereo headset jack will all be functional for Mac users, assuming the game itself supports the features.
The company offered the following comment:
We’re also introducing a new device, the DualShock 4 USB Wireless Adaptor, which launches in early September for a suggested retail price of $24.99. This adaptor will let you connect a DualShock 4 to PC and Mac wirelessly, and will enable every feature of the controller you know and love: buttons, analog sticks, touch pad, light bar, motion sensors, vibration, and stereo headset jack – as long as the gaming application supports these features.
While connecting a DualShock 4 controller to the Mac via USB has been an option for some time now, the new adapter allows for full wireless functionality without having to mess with third-party configurations.
Sony today also introduced a new PlayStation Now app for Windows users. This app brings a handful of PlayStation-exclusive titles to the PC. At this point, Sony says it is in the process of evaluating Mac support for the PS Now app, but has “nothing to announce at this time.”
In addition to working with the new Windows-exclusive PS Now app, the DualShock 4 USB Wireless adapter will also work with the existing Remote Play app that is available for Mac. For those unfamiliar, Remote Play allows users to stream PS4 games to their Mac.
The DualShock 4 USB Wireless Adapter will be available sometime in September for $24.99.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
