    I hope that the DualShock 4 USB Wireless Adaptor will come with native Xinput support/driver for Windows. Otherwise it'd be useless, as one might just as well connect it via Bluetooth which works perfectly fine anyway (everything works when using an Xinput Wrapper for Xinput games anyhow, but it'd be nice to be able to shed it).

    Yeah, right, that is exactly what it means :nerd:
    Otherwise, this seems to be a pretty smart move the expand the market of the service. Alot of PS4 owners are also PS3 owners and have all the games they want to play. PC gamers on the other hand getting direct access to some great exclusives is a whole other matter. Unfortunately, SONY seem to be doing really well this generation.

    So this is why Sony acquired Gaikai cloud gaming service back in 2012? Interesting...

    Edit:
    Because it's using cloud gaming service you don't need to have PS3 or games for it, console and games are required only if you want to play PS4 games on PC. To play PS3 games all you need is Playstation Now application installed, an PSN account (7 days free trial then subscription is required) and you are good to go.

    **their**. There is locality, their is possessive.


    Anyway, If I can play last of us on PC i'll be stoked.

    What savvy gamer uses wireless? No thanks. You can already use dualshock on PC it's not that hard. Bluetooth? Err no. Who has bluetooth on their PC???? Very few people I imagine. I don't see the point.

    Wired or nothing. I mean I see the convenience of it but I've never liked wireless for gaming. It's just too temperamental not to mention running out of battery life just when you're in the middle of killing a boss in Dark Souls or whatever...not going to happen to me no sir.

    I used wireless and Never had any problems with it. Yeah the battery life can get annoying at times.

    I hope so too. But if it doesn't and offers the PC functionality that the plugged in DS4 controllers was supposed to but never did then I would be happy with just that.

    TBH, I've used this service on my PS Vita when it was pay-per-game. Killzone 3 actually looked great and worked fine. Acceptable latency via wifi. I'm interested in this service on PC. Will definitely give it a go.
