Steam Update Adds PS4 Controller Support

Steam Update Adds PS4 Controller Support

Steam launched an update today that allows players to use PlayStation 4 controllers with Steam games. The feature was announced last month and has added support for the controller’s touchpad and gyro features.

“Believe it or not, when you use the PS4 Controller through the Steam API, it’s exactly the same as a Steam Controller. You make the exact same API calls, you only get actions, not inputs, and the Steam API takes care of everything. Not only is it a really nice, high quality controller, but it’s also got a gyro and a touchpad, so it’s got a lot of overlapping functionality with the Steam Controller.” – Jeff Bellinghausen of Valve

Gamer girl living in Oregon, USA I love all kinds of games, but my favorites are RPGs and open world. I also love music, TV shows, and D&D.
