Xbox 360 uses Xinput, it would support all modern browsers, but DirectInput gamepads doesn't.

Chrome won't fix an unsupported USB gamepad due to: some stability issues with DirectInput on Windows causing browser crashes, so they've dropped DirectInput gamepad support.

Construct 2 uses the browser-based Gamepad API for the Gamepad plugin. It works on any platform that supports it. AFAIK iOS doesn't currently support it, but as soon as they add it the plugin will start working on that platform.

Has anyone tried the PS4/xbone controller yet?

Wow, that sucks. That's like the majority of inputs/gamepads down the toilet. So stupid...

Ok the PS4 controller doesn't use Xinupt so probably won't work with Chrome, zzz.

Is there a way to support Directinput with node-webkit?

I'm guessing you can use x360ce emulator to simulate Xinput.

Did someone tried? I'm guessing (again) that you might have to put it inside your browser's .exe directory.
