Reading from PS4 controller fails after the built project loses focus if "Visible in Background" is disabled



Repro steps:
1. Open the user's attached project ""
2. Make sure that "Visible in Background" is disabled in Project Settings > Player > Resolution and Presentation
3. Connect the PS4 controller to the computer
4. Build and Run
5. In the newly opened window, press Play!
6. Alt+Tab to lose focus of the app
7. Go back to the app and try moving the left joystick

Expected results: Controller's input is read and different lines of the list are highlighted accordingly
Actual results: Controller's input is ignored

Not reproducible with: 2019.3.0b2, 2019.3.0b12, 2019.3.0f6, 2020.1.0a1, 2020.1.0a20

-The issue does not reproduce with the Xbox One controller

    2019.2 is no longer supported and it works with 2019.3 and 2020.1
