PS Remote Play on PC with PS4 Pro Controller
- January 17, 2023
Sony’s PlayStation VR (PSVR) is one of the most popular VR headsets out there, and in a recent update to the PlayStation App, it was announced that you can now use the PSVR controller for PC with the PS4 Pro.
Do you want to play the game of your dreams on your PC, but your controller only has two sticks? And unfortunately, for PC gamers, it hasn’t been getting any easier. But you can fix this by using a PS4 Pro controller.
If you want to play your favorite games on your PC, you might be stuck with a regular controller. Luckily for you, there’s a solution. We’ll show you how to use a PS4 Pro controller to play your favorite games on your PC.
PS Plus members can now play PS Remote Play games on their PC. To play the game, you need to download the Remote Play app, then connect your PS4 Pro to your PC via the HDMI port using the new DualShock 4 wireless controller.
How to download and install PS Remote Play
Downloading and installing PS Remote Play is very simple. All you have to do is visit the official PlayStation Store page, scroll down until you see the “PlayStation Now” section, and then click on it. A pop-up box will appear, and if you’ve already got the PS4 Pro controller, you’ll see a prompt asking you to add it.
You can now choose to install the game, or you can go ahead and buy the game. You’ll be asked to log in to your PSN account if you decide to install the game. After that, you’ll be given the option to download the game.
After the download is complete, you can go ahead and start playing.
The best PS4 controller for PC gaming
A PS4 controller is a highly versatile input device. We’ll talk about its strengths and weaknesses.
Firstly, the controller is compatible with most high-end PC games. So, if you’re looking to play the latest AAA titles on your PC, you should have no problem.
Secondly, it has many features you wouldn’t find in a regular controller. It has a touchpad, four shoulder buttons, and a D-Pad.
Thirdly, it is very portable and can be used anywhere, even on your lap. But the PS4 controller isn’t perfect. It is bigger than a regular controller, and the battery life is shorter.
PS4 Pro Controller vs. Xbox One X Controller
It all depends on what you prefer. Some PC gamers prefer the Xbox One X controller because it is slightly smaller than the PS4 Pro controller. But if you want something small and light, you should consider the PS4 Pro controller.
Connect to PS4 Pro via a USB hub
If you have a PS4 controller that doesn’t have the right USB ports, you’ll need to connect it via a USB hub.
We’re going to use a USB 3.0 hub with the following configuration:
• USB 3.0 Hub – 5 Ports
• PS4 Pro Controller (USB Type-C)
• PS4 Pro (USB Type-A)
Let’s look at how you can connect it to your PC.
Plug the PS4 controller into the USB port on your PC.
You can now plug the USB hub into your PC.
You can now plug the PS4 Pro into the USB port on the hub.
Now that the controller is connected to the hub, you’ll need to install the latest driver.
This is the last step to connecting the PS4 Pro to your PC.
Once you’ve installed the drivers, you’re ready to use the PS4 Pro on your PC.
Set up Remote Play on PC
If you’ve ever tried playing a PS4 game on your PC, you’ll know it’s very difficult to achieve. It is possible to connect a PS4 Pro controller to your PC. There are some issues relating the controller to the PC, and many games don’t support this feature. We’ll walk you through how to set up Remote Play on your PC and even show you how to connect the controller to your PC.
Use the PS4 Pro controller as the gamepad.
There are two issues I have encountered when trying to do this. The first issue is that you can’t set it up in the controller configuration menu like you can on a regular controller, and the second issue is that if you want to use it as a keyboard/mouse device, you need to change the input device from a gamepad to a keyboard/mouse.
