    Hi all, apologize if this is a repeat but I haven’t found like topics in the search.

    I see multiple tutorials for PS3 controllers and how to set them up for wireless use with retropie. Do the same instructions apply for a PS4 controller?

    I currently have my PS4 controller working well, but I’m using the cable. Before I go down this rabbit hole of attempting to set it up wirelessly, I was hoping someone might have a link or something to a video or article by someone who has done this.

    Why are all the tutorials for PS3 controllers? Is it because people have them laying around now that PS4 has been out awhile? Or is there some difference that makes the PS3 controller a better candidate for use with RetroPie?

    Thanks in advance for your time.



    I’m using two PS4 controllers and some time ago i wrote here how i did it.


    I hope this will help you if not feel free to ask any question you have.


    I know this is a little over a month old but I followed your steps Berni…

    I followed the steps and saw this:

    pi@retropie ~ $ hcitool scan
    Scanning ...
            0C:EE:E6:FD:6D:EA       Wireless Controller
    pi@retropie ~ $ sudo l2ping -c 1 0C:EE:E6:FD:6D:EA
    Ping: 0C:EE:E6:FD:6D:EA from 5C:F3:70:75:98:C5 (data size 44) ...

    pi@retropie ~ $ sudo bluez-simple-agent hci0 0C:EE:E6:FD:6D:EA
    New device (/org/bluez/5704/hci0/dev_0C_EE_E6_FD_6D_EA)
    pi@retropie ~ $ sudo bluez-test-device trusted 0C:EE:E6:FD:6D:EA yes

    Then the controller was lit up instead of blinking. So I rebooted, started up emulation station, and controller didn’t work. It kept blinking as if it was trying to pair.


    Actually. I’m going through your setup again and I just realized, bluetooth isn’t even work. I’m not sure why it suddenly stopped after reboot. Any ideas?

    pi@retropie ~ $ /etc/init.d/bluetooth status
    [FAIL] bluetooth is not running ... failed!
