    Hi all,

    Anyone owns Razer Raiju and use it for PC games or on Steam maybe?

    I'm aware that rumble/force-feedback isn't working on PC at the moment, but is there a work-around?
    Will the rumble still work with DS4? I found that DS4 now supports Raiju.

    Looking forward to get one.

    Yeah it will work on DS4. I dunno about the rumble tho.

    Late response, but if you(or anyone else) still needed an answer, you can get rumble to work, but you have to do it without the x-input conversion the Razer driver does. Following that you'd need to use something that'll convert it back to x-input if necessary(unless the game already supports DirectInput controllers).

    First option is using the PS4 config support Steam now offers in its big picture mode -

    Follow these instructions as mentioned on http://support.razerzone.com/console/razer-raiju/

    Can I use my Razer Raiju on Steam as a PS4 controller?

    Yes! Although the Razer Raiju is recognised as an XInput Controller, if the Razer Raiju driver is installed, you can switch the driver to use Razer Raiju as a PS4 controller on Steam (Please install latest Steam Beta and select "PS4 configuration support" under Steam settings):

    1. Open Device Manager
    2. Find "Razer Raiju" under "Human Interface Devices"
    3. Right Click and Update Device Software
    4. Select "Browse my computer for driver software"
    5. Select "Let me Pick from a list of device drivers on my computer"
    6. Choose "HID-compliant game controller" and click "Next"
    7. After the driver is updated, close the window and click "Yes" to restart your computer

    Second option is to use the Raiju compliant version of DS4Windows. (Download link - https://github.com/Jays2Kings/DS4Windows/issues/300) You might still need to follow the above steps for disabling the x-input to get this to work. You might need to tick "Hide ds4 Controller" in DS4Windows, as sometimes not ticking it can cause confusion in games.

    The DS4Windows option allows you to use the controller with games from the Windows Store too, unlike the x-input solution the Razer driver offers.

    Has anyone tested Playstation Now on PC to verify that the program registers it as a PS controller as that's a requirement for the program.

    Wow, I didn't even know it worked on the PC as well. I thought it was strictly console only. I didn't even know what it was originally, but after taking a look at it I have to say it looks impressive. The only thing that was sorta weird was seeing it in blue and not tried and true Razer Green! But I get that green is the X-Box color.

    So trying to decide If I want the Raiju or the Wolverine. I play PC/PS4.
    Does the Raiju work as a XB1 controller on PC? I know steam games work with it, what about Remote play and other games, does the PC read it as a XB controller or a PS controller?

    Yup @Hucast and I were just posting about this the other day. I didn't think ps4 had pc compatible controllers by razer. Interesting to know.

    Edit: there is a special notation about pc compatibility on the page. But I'm guessing that's why they never advertised it as pc compatible but did for the Xbox.

    I never look at the Razerzone, I don't like to be teased! :big_grin_: That's why I never knew about all the incredible products Razer has to offer. And the site itself is pure eye candy. Not like those "other" guys websites. Those sites look like something from the 90's. I know, I lived it.

    I installed the Raiju driver on my Razer Blade Stealth (I run this with the Core, most of the time); the controller isn't recognized by PS4 Remote Play, unfortunately (for me). I am hoping it is just something I am doing wrong, instead of it being unable to work.

    Often, when not at home I try to do some things on the PS4 using my Stealth; now that I've got this controller, that is no longer an option.
