      Answer

      Yes, you would need an additional USB dongle for each controller you want to connect. I've read of people who've had 3-4 connected to a single PC.

      Answer

      Yes, I use it with Steam, UPlay and EA Origin. It's the new version of the PS4 Dualshock so it can be connected by Bluetooth or USB for faster connection. Previous models wouldn't allow the USB as an alternative.

      Yes, you can replace the Dualshock 4 with another Dualshock 4. You will need to go through the pairing process again with the new controller

    Do I need to own a PS4 to use this device to play games with it?   (5 Answers)

      This controller comes with an adapter for your computer. If your question is if it works with computer games, yes it should. I have tested it on a few steam games and it works flawlessly. If you're looking for a gaming controller for your computer, this should work with most games. However there is probably more affordable options if all you want it for is PC gaming.

      Can you create a LAN party using this along with the PS4.   (5 Answers)

        I do not know about LAN party unless you have multiple PS4s on the LAN. However, if you are playing games that allow side-by-side multiplayer then extra controllers definitely come in handy. If you are talking about using this with a PC and a PS4 on the same LAN, I guess it would depend on the game. I am not sure of which games allow cross-platform multiplayer like that though.
