Well, afaik my ds4 controller worked perfectly with no issues, I tested Zelda breath of the wild yesterday and it worked fine, I played like 30 minutes and everything went fine and no issues at all
There are two versions of the PS4 Controller from what I can tell the model 1 (your version I assume) which works fine and the model 2 (my version) which still has issues for now :)

Hi gary
I have problems pairing the xbox one controls, neither of them synchronizes me with the wiiu, a few weeks ago Microsoft released a control update to insider users and I made this update, it will be for this reason that they do not connect me with the wiiu .
the controls are like the ones you show in the video.
From what I understood from the news of the new insiders firmware update, the update changes the controllers to use Bluetooth LE, effectively turning them into Series S/X controllers. Haven't confirmed, but I don't imagine they can simultaneusly support the current classic Bluetooth and the new LE connections. Likely means your controller has been rendered incompatible until Bluetooth LE support is added.

Really? can you try the Controller in Retroarch? for me the Controller syncs and desync's constantly, you can tell because the notification pops up in the bottom left corner of the Retroarch UI

I have to download retroarch first, if I test the controller with it I will tell you, however I've been testing it this morning with botw, Mario kart 8, some VC games and the controller is working perfectly
Oh and btw I own two ds4 controllers, both are the same model and both worked perfectly

Thanks, I guess it could just be my Controller since I tried Shovel Knight and Wind Waker and my Controller messes up in both those games as well.

Well a few minutes ago I tested wind waker HD and it's perfect as well, do you have another controller you could test?

Do you have to run the app and/or resync the controller every time you boot?
You need to sync the controller only once, even if you reboot the console.
You need to run the app every time you reboot if you want to reconnect the controller though.

    Apparently Nintendo adapted the 3D All-Stars emulator, instead of their old Virtual Console emulator - or, if nothing else, copying what fans have done.

    I wonder...how would the gaming scene have changed had the Wii (and its bullshit motion controls and criminally neglected Classic Controller) failed?

  • AkiraKurusu @ AkiraKurusu:
    Microsoft certainly wouldn't have experimented with the Kinect, that's for sure. Would Nintendo have released something like the Wii U early?
    Gift
  • AkiraKurusu @ AkiraKurusu:
    That would've had a different name, so as not to tie it to its failed predecessor (something the Wii U dearly wished it has gotten anyway).
    Gift
  • Veho @ Veho:
    PlayStation 2 already had that EyeToy thing before the Wii, and a whole lot of games supported it. Microsoft would have had something like the Kinect even if the Wii failed.

    For some reason, some Amazon reviews said it was a scam 'cause it launch there before they made an official launch on their webpage...anyway, according to people, it's good...it was gonna be my first option to buy when I wanted something to farm in games automatically, but then I backed down since tax fees and shipping would have costed me a fortune to Mexico...
