You may not be able to use it on a PlayStation 5, but fear not! Dualshock 4 is compatible with xCloud, according to Microsoft.
Okay, here’s what we know: the Dualshock 4 isn’t exactly compatible with the PlayStation 5. Well, it is, but only for select compatible PlayStation 4 games. If you want to play any PlayStation 5 games, Sony has said you’ll need a new controller with DualSense. Let’s be honest: that’s fair enough. With the new features, it makes sense that they’ll try to exploit them as much as possible.
However, it now seems Microsoft is getting involved with all the Dualshock hype with its following announcement…
Dualshock 4 Compatible With xCloud
It’s a small victory for Microsoft but an important one for consumers. This isn’t new news, really, either, but the confirmation is nice. Tom Warren, Senior Editor at The Verge, offered up the news in a Tweet earlier.
What makes it better is that xCloud will be available to all GamePass subscribers from September. However, is this what Microsoft needs to sway the “voters”? The xCloud is really a fantastic thing. It’ll essentially allow you to stream Xbox games to your devices, so you can play Halo 3 in your kitchen or Gears 5 on the loo!
With this service now including GamePass, a whole host of new titles will be made available to people to play wherever they please. XCloud is launching September 15 in 22 countries to “ensure stability” for the service. The countries it is launching are listed below:
