Unleashing the DualSense: Unlocking the Secrets of PS5 Controllers on PS4

Adventurers of the gaming realm, listen up! Are you a proud owner of a PS5 controller and yearning to wield its mighty power on your trusty PS4? Well, my fellow gamers, it's time to embark on a quest filled with twists and turns as we explore the enigmatic world of compatibility. Prepare yourselves, for the path to connecting a PS5 controller to a PS4 is no walk in the park.

Ah, Sony, the mastermind behind these technological wonders, isn't exactly renowned for their backward compatibility prowess. The DualShock 4, a formidable companion in its own right, only dances with a select few PS3 games. And now, the journey to unite the PS5 controller with its predecessor, the PS4, proves to be equally treacherous.

But fear not, for we have a few tricks up our sleeves to aid you on this perilous endeavor. One option is to acquire a marvelous device known as the Brook converter. This ingenious contraption possesses the power to connect various controllers, including the illustrious DualSense of the PS5, to your trusty PlayStation 4. Whether it's through a wireless or wired connection, this little marvel can be plugged directly into the controller itself. However, be warned, brave warriors, for some have reported compatibility issues along the way. But remember, every hero's tale is unique, so your experience may differ.

Another ally in this grand quest is the MayFlash Pro, a steadfast companion that enables the use of DualSense PS5 controllers on the venerable PS4. However, it's worth noting that MayFlash's arcade stick does not find solace in the realm of the PS5. Refer to the comprehensive list provided by Brook to ensure compatibility with your desired controller.

Now, let us unveil a secret technique that involves the sacred PlayStation Remote Play PC app. First, you must summon this app onto your PC by means of a download. Once it has materialized, connect your valiant PS4 controller to your trusty PC using either the mystical powers of Bluetooth or a humble mini-USB cable.

Alas, the PlayStation remote app only supports the DualShock 4 or the mighty DualSense. Attempting to connect your PS4 controller to the PS Remote Play PC/Mac app via Bluetooth will result in certain features being left unsupported. Fear not, for we shall provide you with a solution that will preserve the full functionality of your controller, utilizing the power of your mobile device.

To establish the sacred bond between your PS4 controller and your mobile device, press and hold the hallowed PS and Share buttons until they shimmer with anticipation. Then, venture forth into the realm of Bluetooth options, where you shall unite the two in harmony.

Now, turn your gaze towards the majestic PS5, waiting patiently for your arrival. Traverse the realm of Settings, then navigate through the treacherous terrain of System and Remote Play, until you unearth the coveted Enable Remote Play option. But wait, there's more! Within the Settings menu, you shall discover the Power Saving options, allowing you to awaken the slumbering PS5 from afar, should your adventures take you on a journey outside the confines of your realm.

With your trusty PSN ID in hand, venture into the PlayStation Remote Play app, where you shall connect to your long-awaited PlayStation 5, accompanied by the loyal DualShock 4. Together, you shall conquer the challenges that lie ahead.

Now, a word of caution, brave warriors. While a PS4 controller can indeed function in the realm of the PS5, its powers only extend to the land of PlayStation 4 games. Alas, the current generation of titles remains out of reach. It may seem like a missed opportunity, but we suspect that Sony seeks a clear distinction between the realms of the PS4 and the mighty PS5. Perhaps the DualSense's Bluetooth 5.1, which is backward compatible with the PS4's Bluetooth 4, presents a software challenge rather than a physical limitation. Or perchance, Sony desires to keep the sanctity of the PS5 untainted by the presence of the DualSense in its predecessor's realm.

In theory, the world of controllers should be a harmonious one, much like the Xbox Series X and S. In that realm, Xbox One controllers march forward, hand in hand with the Series X and S controllers, embracing the concept of backward compatibility. Alas, our journey through the Sony realm presents a more convoluted path. But fear not, for we shall shed light on an alternate route, though we do not recommend it, for it is an arduous and treacherous one. Follow us, if you dare, and witness the intricacies of this complex process.
