More and more games of my steam library are built for a 360 controller input (or rather: an Xinput device). While I have a couple of those things from my actual xbox360, they require their special dongle to use it on a PC. Getting one of those has always been a 'maybe later'...probably because these adapters don't seem to be supported that much anymore*. But with the PS4 controller, things become more interesting. More specifically the trackpad that's on the center of that thing. I've seen some youtube movies explaining how to set up the PS4 on PC and even use that trackpad as the mouse, but I'm not entirely sold yet. Just because I can use a PS4 controller on a PC doesn't make it the best option yet. So here are some basic questions (for those that have tried it). Once installed, how much work is it to plug in/pair and unplug/unpair the device before and after gaming? Can it (that is: a dual shock PS4 controller) be used both over bluetooth and with a USB cable? Does the controller actually charge when plugged into your PC? (I assume so, but I'd rather ask this for certainty than ending up having to buy a PS4 to charge it ). Is there any input lag when using xinput (over bluetooth)? What's your impression of the 'mouse emulation' of the PS4? And so on. I'm not sure how many here have even tried this, but if so...I'd gladly hear it before getting one.
