Who hasn’t dreamed about playing Sony exclusive titles on PC? Thanks to the native app, you can do it easily. There’s only one limit: it requires an original gamepad. Or not?
reWASD 5.1 makes it possible to use PS4 Remote Play with Xbox controller or any other gamepad we support and you have. Just download and install reWASD, create a new config, choose Virtual DS4 for this config and map any DS4 button to the correspondent physical control. Then just launch PS4 Remote Play — Xbox controller, PS3 gamepad, Nintendo Switch Pro or Joy-Con couple will be detected as an original device from now.
To use Xbox controller with PS4 Remote Play, you need a Basic license only. But if you want to create combos or turbo buttons out of DS4 controls, do not forget to enable Combo and Rapid Fire features. In addition to the support of PS4 Remote Play, PS3 gamepad has one more benefit out of our Virtual DS4 — now you will be able to use it in much more modern PC games without necessity to remap it to unfamiliar Xbox controls.
It’s so easy to lose track of time while using PS4 Remote Play with Xbox controller. And it’s so embarrassing to find out that your gamepad battery is low when you are in the middle of the battle. No worries, it won’t happen again, because now you can keep an eye on the battery status in the system tray.
For each gamepad you have, we will add an icon to Windows tray. You can choose the color of your icon in Preferences. If you have several connected gamepads, it won’t be a problem to know who is who. If you think that there are too many icons now, choose which ones we should hide.
