The user licence agreement found on Sony's website reveals that a firmware update for the DualSense might soon arrive to Windows, suggesting full support for the controller on PC.

An end-user licence agreement for Firmware Updater software for DualSense wireless controller has been spotted on Sony's website. The licence agreement was published on April 6, 2022, but interestingly, it's no longer live on the official page.

However, some eagle-eyed Redditors spotted a cached version of the licence agreement, which does mention Windows as one of the supported systems for Firmware Updater. 

At the moment, to update the firmware on your DualSense controller, you need a PlayStation 5 console since the update cannot be done via your PC, but it looks like that might change in the future. 

Here's an interesting tidbit in the licence agreement, mentioning Windows systems:

"You are accepting this Agreement on your behalf and on behalf of other people who access or use the Application Software on computer devices that you own or control (and that lawfully run the applicable versions of Microsoft Windows or macOS)"

Given how Sony plan to release more and more of their first-party games on PC, the full DualSense control support for PC, does not come as a surprise. Some PlayStation exclusives like Haven Studios' live service title will even launch day one on PC so adding DualSense features like haptic feedback and adaptive triggers would certainly benefit PC players.

Though, it remains to be seen when exactly will Sony talk more about full DualSense support on PC. Hopefully, we get some official news from the publisher in the near future.
