I'm going to order a keyboard for my PS4 so I can use more buttons. If possible I'd prefer a blutooth one but I'd like to know if it will be recognized by the game or not (the patch notes is mentioning USB keyboard).

Thanks for advice.

I think Bluetooth only works via USB on the PS4, doesnt it?

No, the PS4 supports Bluetooth devices (wireless)...

As far as I know, the DS4 is actually a Bluetooth device...

This really needs to happen. With a headset and wheel plugged in there's no room for a usb one. Come on SMS give us an answer please.

Interesting, the Sony official Wireless Headset comes with it's own Bluetooth USB dongle that has to use up 1 of my USB slots permanently. I wonder why it was not just connected to the internal bluetooth.

^^ The Sony dongle isn't bluetooth. It's either RF or IR, just like all the other wireless PS4 wireless dongles.

Getting back to the keyboard, I've successfully connected my Apple BT and USB keyboards to my PS4. I've never tried to use them in any game tho. I guess that's up to the game dev team to implement.

I've tried my USB keyboard, but I can't use it in game on PS4. Sucks, because it would be nice to have due to all the options available. Hopefully it's something they patch in.

Read patch 2.0 notes.

My Logitech BT keybard works on PS4 and PCars (scrolling in the menu's)
After patch 2.0 it should be possible to map controls to the keys (so was promised).

The Sony pulse headset is not BT (as mentioned before), but I have a external powered USB3 hub connected to USB port 2 on the PS4, which gives me 4 extra USB ports, and that works fine.
Headset dongle, TH8 shifter, loading controller and loading headset when necessary all together.
