A YouTube user has posted a video claiming that the DualShock 4 controller works with Xbox 360 consoles.

RageBeefSA posted the video, which you can see below, which he claims he managed to do thanks to some technical jiggery-pokery.

He reveals that he managed to make it work using "a combination of JoyToKey, a Cronus Device, and Cronus Bullseye software."

We already heard last week that the DualShock 4 would work with the PlayStation 3,PCs and Macs, so this isn't hugely surprising. Despite this, it's pretty interesting to think what impact this could have; will it also be possible to use the controller with Xbox One?

With both consoles schedule to release in under a month, we're sure it won't be too long before we find out.

Microsoft will probably patch something to remove capability but what are the chances of DS4 working on Xbox one ? Maybe a WII U?

If it worked with a Wii U that would be cool.

I have to say getting one is becoming more and more tempting, I need a spare controller for real life friends and girlfriend anyway.

Look I'm not spending Sixty dollars for a controller so I can tear it apart and use it on a last gen. system. I tore Two PS3 controller's apart and couldnt put them back together, I ended up throwing them away.

I find it interesting how it works with the 360, I wonder if it will work with the Xbox One as well.

It doesn't work. It works with a stupid hack nobody will ever want to use.

That instantly makes it less funny and interesting, unfortunately.

With the Wii U? Highly doubt it, since Nintendo's controller scheme seems to be super proprietary. Then again, that new Pro controller doesn't need to be attached to a Wiimote to work does it? Hmm.

I doubt they would patch it out. They probably don't care.

Both the Wii and Wii U use bluetooth to connect controllers. Thats why it's pretty easy to connect wiimotes or the pro controller to a pc.
