DualShock 4 PS4 PlayStation 4 1

We love the DualShock 4 here at Push Square Towers, but it looks like we're not the only ones. The Wirecutter in collaboration with Engadget has determined Sony's current controller as the best option for PC gaming, despite there being a slew of alternatives available. According to the publication, while there are some setup hurdles with the PlayStation 4 peripheral, it offers the best combination of comfort and performance for the price, with the touchpad's ability to double as a makeshift mouse cursor being among its advantageous attributes.

The article does, of course, point to the Xbox One controller and its Elite compatriot as alternative options, outlining their simple setup procedures – but it mentions the lack of a touchpad and awkward shoulder button placements as a reason to go with the DualShock 4 instead. If you're looking to use the PS4 controller with your PC, then the DS4 Windows software comes highly recommended, and a lot of PC games now support PlayStation button prompts to make you feel more at home.
