If it's a charge cable it doesnt carry data. Xbox 360 controllers had the same problem. A lot of people tried using the charge and play cable and it doesnt work.
Gamefaqs game rating system : 10 = Best Game Ever. 8-9. Crushing dissapointment. Below 8 :Total Garbage. This is getting ridiculous. people agreeing so far 127

DS4 works perfectly wired. I just play it wired to avoid having to use blutooth and cause issues for others in the house. Blutooth also works perfectly though. I wonder if the new Xbox One controllers, the ones with blutooth carry data through the cable.

Wouldn't that be the case if one doesn't have bluetooth? I disconnect my bluetooth adapter and still use my Xbox One S gamepad with a cable.
Hey, how come my two cents is only worth like a half a cent?

I think most of us that have an XBONE controller setup via BT hand to hardwire it to update the firmware before BT would work at all. So yeah it can definitely transmit data over the cable.

All I know is this -

I bought a wired Xbox 360 controller .
I plugged it into my Windows 10 PC.
I started a game and it worked.
Been using it ever since.

I did that at first too. Then I noticed pressing left on the D-pad in Dark Souls was often changing my spells. So I tried another one, same thing. So I tried another, same thing. So I got a different pad.

Xbox One controllers are different in that the controller cable is by default made to transfer data via micro USB.

My experience with the cable is that the controller somehow stops working with it like it isn't robust enough to handle the slightest change within the connector. Try jiggling the cable around and see if the controller responds momentarily. If it does, it means the controller no longer likes the cable. My solution when I ran into the issue was just to buy the wireless kit for PC and abandon wired gaming.
Hmm...

Yeah the micro USB connection was a poor choice. It just isn't robust enough to handle the movement of using the controller wired. A lot of people seem to have had issues with it because of that.
