You can connect the Xbox One S controller to a PlayStation 4 (but that’s it)

That's an Xbox One S controller connected to a PS4.

Well, this is strange.

I just connected the Xbox One S controller to my PlayStation 4. That’s not something I ever expected to do. On August 2, Microsoft will launch the Xbox One S controller for $60, and — in what is an Xbox first — it features a Bluetooth radio. I’ve already connected it to my PC and Android tablet, but then I remembered that the PS4 uses Bluetooth as well. So I got everything set up, and … well, the Xbox One S controller does connect to the PS4.

Check it out:

Unfortunately, that connection doesn’t mean you can use the Xbox One S controller to interact with the PS4 in any way. I couldn’t get any input to register on the PS4 with my Xbox controller despite the system showing it connected as a gamepad.

Maybe I’m missing something, but I’m betting that the PS4 just doesn’t have the necessary Bluetooth drivers to get the Xbox One S pad working, and that’s probably not going to change.
