PS4 controller on Xbox one

Many people love using the PS4 controller over other kinds of controllers because it’s easy to use. Even when it comes to Xbox One, people love using the PS4 controller on it since it allows them to play the games better. But the question is- how can you use the PS4 controller on Xbox one?

After all, two different companies used different technologies to make these two systems But know that there’s indeed a way you can use your PS4 controller to play games on an Xbox One, and here I am going to tell you that.

How To Use PS4 Controller On A Xbox One?

If you want to connect a PS4 controller with an Xbox One, you need to utilize a CronusMAX-PLUSadapter. This is a reliable and stable way to pair the console and controller together.

So here’s how you can do it:

  1. First, plug your CronusMAXPLUScorrectly into your PC (make sure it is connected to the internet). Just doing this should be enough to make it auto-download and install all the needed drivers.
  2. Once the CronusMAXPLUShas been loaded into your PC, you need to load up the Cronus Pro app before selecting the Tools options.
  3. After you have chosen Tools, you need to head to the Options button and then select the Device option from there.
  4. Now you need to set up your output protocol to be Xbox One. You can choose it from the drop-down menu that will appear once you choose the Device option.
  5. After this, all you need to do is set up CronusMAXPLUS. For this, you need to ensure that the searching box with the name Dualshock4/WiimoteBluetooth is checked.
  6. Now you can safely remove CronusMAXPLUSeasily from the PC. Then, plug it safely into the Xbox One by using the USB port given. After you have done this, you will find that the CronusMAXPLUSgets are shown as “AU’ (meaning: Authentication) on the LED display.
  7. Next, you need to get rid of the batteries present in the Xbox One controller. Know that the batteries have to be removed because if any of the Xbox One controllers stay connected to your console, that signal can effectively overwrite that of the PS4 one.
  8. After the number shows up on your CronusMAXPLUS, it’s time to disconnect your Xbox One controller. Now you have to look for the animation telling you to standby. This will be two circle halves spinning all around your display.
  9. Now it’s time to connect the Xbox One controller with the CronusMAXPLUS. Again, you can connect these two with the help of a sturdy USB cable. After you do that, the CronusMAXPLUS adapter display should tell “0” instead of “AU.”
  10. Now, connect your USB adapter (Bluetooth4.0) straight to your CronusMAXPLUS. After this, hold on to both the PS and Share buttons present on the PS4 controller.
  11. You will find that your controller will start flashing white. This shows that it’s looking for a stable connection. So ideally, it should locate your CronusMAXPLUS. Once it does, it should stop flashing white and instead show one solid color.
  12. But that’s not all. You need to keep an eye out for the display bar present on CronusMAXPLUS. It should change up to “0” once again. After this happens, you can use your PS4 controller to play games once again.

Summary :

If you purchase a CronusMAXPLUS and then follow the above steps, then you will be able to use your PS4 controller to play games even on your Xbox One. So happy gaming!
