8Bitdo Wireless USB Adapter Lets You Use a PS4 Controller with a Nintendo Switch
Highlights
  • 8Bitdo Wireless USB Adapter is $20 (around Rs. 1,300)
  • It lets you use a host of controllers on the Switch such as the Wiimote
  • You can also use it on Windows, Mac, and Android TV devices to name a few

With the ongoing success of the Nintendo Switch, it’s no surprise that we’re seeing a slew of peripherals for the console. In fact, it’s something Nintendo is counting on to extend its lifespan.

What the Kyoto-based company may have not planned for is a USB adapter that lets you use a PS4 controller with the Nintendo Switch. Accessories manufacturer 8bitdo has released the 8Bitdo Wireless USB Adapter which lets you just that.

In addition to the DualShock 4, the 8Bitdo Wireless USB Adapter supports the DualShock 3, Wii remote, Wii U Pro Controller, and the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller.

Furthermore, you can use the 8Bitdo Wireless USB Adapter with Windows, Mac, Android TV, Raspberry Pi, and Retrofreak devices, meaning you have multiple ways to use your existing controllers across multiple platforms even if you don’t own a Nintendo Switch and have no plans to get one.

Though we’d suspect that the 8Bitdo Wireless USB Adapter would see the most use from someone who has accessories for the Wii and Wii U that can now be used on the Nintendo Switch.

The 8Bitdo Wireless USB Adapter price is $20 (around Rs. 1,300) and is available on Amazon at the moment. If you live outside the US, you can try importing with our handy guide.
