With DualSense controllers, Sony shows that it cares about PC gamers

Share This Post

The imaginatively titled “Firmware updater for DualSense wireless controller” app is now available for Windows 11 and 64-bit versions of Windows 10. (People using the 32-bit version appear to be out of luck.) The app can be downloaded from the PlayStation website.

Until now, Sony has not permitted gamers without a PS5 to upgrade the gamepad’s firmware. Sony has finally shown some mercy to individuals who bought a DualSense controller to play PC games. Despite the fact that the PlayStation 5 was released in November 2020, there is still a scarcity of the console. In principle, this shouldn’t be an issue for PC players who purchase a DualSense controller—unless Sony refuses to allow them upgrade the gamepad’s firmware without a PS5. Until now, that is.


  • How to Connect Your PS5 DualSense Controller to Your PC. Will this comfort people who’ve been looking to buy a PS5 for almost a year and a half? Probably not. But at least now DualSense owners who don’t have the next-gen console on hand won’t be stuck using out-of-date firmware simply because they’re using the controller with a PC.

  • Sony notes that PC gamers won’t be notified of new firmware updates automatically; they have to launch the app to see if a new version is available. The company also says that only a single DualSense controller can be updated at a time using the Windows application.
