09:04 – Conclusion and final thoughts
The adapter only supports one controller at a time unfortunately. But it does add a lot of value for Nintendo Switch owners as it makes it possible to use PS4, Xbox One, Wii, and Wii U controllers with few compromises. The motion controls only work on the PS4 controller, however.
PC support is useful especially for those looking to map a PS4 controller to X-input. The dongle does that mapping without any additional drivers required.
