Now you can use the Wii U Controller on PC games

5 Feb

We always love people making an improper use of licensed hardware, especially when it’s not about cracking or piracy, but just opening a new world of possibilities. And this is the case of this guy, Chris Manning, transforming the Wii U game pad into something you can use on a PC.

This video also shows how you can re-map the pad in order to make it works with lot of stuff on your PC, like DirectInput games and emulators (including Dolphin and most Steam games).

We know that you’re wondering about the touchscreen and all the cool stuff you’d like to do with it on your PC. Chris also said that a touchscreen support in on the work, and you’ll be able to use the pad as a graphical tablet or similar stuff very soon.

For now, you can download all the stuff you need to make it works here.

Keep it up Chris (and watch your back from Nintendo)
