Valve is bringing allowing full support for the PS4 Controller with the Steam platform in the future.

At Steam Dev Days today, Jeff Bellinghausen with Valve Software said the company is slated to release an update that will expand Steam Controller configuration options to the PlayStation 4’s DualShock 4 controller. That means more options for players, allowing them to tailor the functions of the PS4’s touchpad and gyro features – options that aren’t available today when using the DualShock 4 with Steam.

Co-presenter Lars Doucet, developer of Defender’s Quest, explained, “Believe it or not, when you use the PS4 Controller through the Steam API, it’s exactly the same as a Steam Controller. You make the exact same API calls, you only get actions, not inputs, and the Steam API takes care of everything.”

It will function as if you have a Steam Controller hooked up with your computer, so full customization support will be usable with the PS4 controller. If you have a gaming PC and a PS4, this is great news for you, considering you can use a controller you own to play the massive library of games Steam offers.
