Valve has announced that Steam has already begun to provide support command for the PlayStation 4’s DualShock 4, becoming the first controller which itt is not of Valve to receive full support from this store.
Over the Steam Dev Days, the annual event organized by Valve in Seattle for developers, the company has officially announced the official support of the PS4 DualShock controller into the Steam platform. Jeff Bellinghausen of Valve explained that the Sony controller will be natively supported by Steam through the same configuration function used by the Steam Controller, or take advantage of the Steam API.
The Steam Beta Client has been recently updated. This Steam Beta update will include support for the PlayStation 4 DualShock controllers. In addition to this, they have added a number of other PS4 features.
Valve was already announced that there would be support for the DualShock 4 controllers. This is now to be tested with the Steam client beta.
Of course, for the moment this feature is only in beta and to prove it you will have to download the latest beta client update of Steam.
If we do we will find that we can enjoy the same type of configuration and customization options that the digital store offers for Steam Controller, including a native API.
To enable support, you have to activate the Big Picture mode of Steam and click on the option “Add/Test Controller settings”.
Using this system you can configure your touchpad, buttons, sticks, and so on. To get things easier, there are several default configurations on which we can work later to avoid having to configure everything from scratch.
