Pair PS4 Controllers To The PS Classic With These Special Adapters
For gamers, the trend of releasing mini-retro consoles loaded with classic games is a pretty sweet thing. But, let's admit it, not everything about old-school gaming is still awesome -- like literally being tied to the console by your controller cables.
Instead, most of us would much rather sit on our couches a reasonable distance away from the behemoths that our TVs have become. So, of course, the controller complete with a five-foot cord that comes with the PlayStation Classic isn't exactly ideal.
The good news is, there's a solution for that.
8BitDo, a third-party company specializing in controllers and adapters, has created a wireless USB adapter that plugs into the PS Classic and works with any controller via BlueTooth -- meaning you can use your PlayStation 4 controller just fine.
Other controllers that work with it are the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller and anything 8BitDo makes.
The adapter also works with multiple platforms, including the Nintendo Switch, PC, and Mac. Those looking for a similar solution for their SNES and NES Classic console systems can find separate adapters for those on the 8BitDo site as well.
Just because you're playing old-school games doesn't mean you have to play them old-school.
