PS5 DualSense could get full PC support

You may be able to update the PS5’s DualSense controller and take advantage of its features on PC in the future.

While it is possible to use the PlayStation 5’s DualSense controller for PC gaming, it’s also limited in what it can do. However, it’s suspected that will change thanks to a leaked End User License Agreement (EULA).

This is an official EULA by Sony that was on the PlayStation website. Sony has deleted it, but a cached version (a copy of the web page) exists and has made the rounds online.

The EULA is for a firmware updater for the DualSense controller, with the software to be available on computers that ‘run the applicable versions of Microsoft Windows or macOS.’

You can view the EULA yourself here, which was spotted and shared on Reddit by user Kgarvey. What it means is that it will be possible to update the DualSense controller through a PC instead of the PS5 console.

Such a feature would be extremely useful for anyone who skipped getting a PS5 but bought the DualSense controller separately for PC gaming.

This could mean that full PC support for the DualSense’s unique features, like haptic feedback and the adaptive triggers, is coming too. Most games that support these features on PS5 don’t on PC, with it being up to each game’s developer whether to implement support or not.

There are some exceptions, like Deathloop and Metro Exodus, but the full list is still very small and doesn’t include any of Sony’s first-party releases. Although the EULA makes no mention of it, perhaps Sony plans on improving DualSense support on PC overall.

It makes a lot of sense for Sony to do this considering it’s been releasing some of its first-party PlayStation games for PC. So far, this includes Horizon Zero Dawn and Uncharted: Legacy Of Thieves Collection.

There’s no telling when Sony plans on releasing the updater app for PC, but hopefully the fact that this EULA exists at all means it’s not too far away.
