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.

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.

Yes, for those of you at home, that's the widely known acronym for "Bad Ass Mother F***er."

Musk playfully threw out the acronym as a "scientific term" Tesla's development team used as they designed the new big rigs. The name sounds ridiculous — but the specs, if they wind up being legit, are actually pretty impressive.

Musk claims the Semi can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just five seconds, well faster than traditional diesel trucks. That's the cab by itself or with an empty trailer loaded on. Read more...
