Any game that allows a wired PS3 controller will work with the DualShock 4.
Really good to know. This will prolong the life of the PS3 more more years now. Given just how much better the DS4 is. Great video!
there really wasnt any doubt the controller would work as far as it being like the DS3. The real "?" was if the pseye was able to see the lightbar on the DS4 as if it was a move controller. this guy should try it out with the pseye and see if the camera sees it. The move and DS4 use a similar illuminated sensing system.
Fact is he is trying it. Where most just talk about it.
Wtf i ad no idea this would work and I wish i could buy a DS4 early so I could use it now and get use to it. That's awesome
What about the sixaxis?
After Sony gets a whif of this video I'm sure this will not work when the PS4 is released, but this is really cool if they were to leave it be.
And why would they shoot themselves in the foot like that ?
This, at $60 a pop on 80 million PS3 consoles makes everyone a happy person.
I'm not a fan of the DS3, however if I can use the DS4 on my ps3, I will be very happy.
Damn, it's not really an option with my set-up to stick with using the wires, wish it'd work wirelessly. If that was the case I'd buy one for my PS3 asap.
That will do nicely :)
Besides making money, I don't see why Sony didn't allow DS3 to work with PS4. This goes for MSoft too.
Probably because the Dualshock 4 has different buttons compared to the DS3, there is no start or select button for example. So you'd have to patch in every single game to allow for a DS3 to work with a PS4 game that's designed to use the newer controller.
GTA V on Next-gen (controller) confirmed!!!!
currently love playing my emulators with the ds3, cant wait to do that with the ps4 controller, might get it before the console... wow i actually said that.
Did anyone notice Sony gave the ps4 the same power up sound effect as the ps2? You can hear it on sony's new "ps memories " commercial. Omg I'm having a huge nerdgasm right now after watching it again after someone in n4g brought it up today :)
The only question I have now regards the sixaxis. If that works while plugged into the PS3 then I will have all I need to sell my DS3 controllers and upgrade to DS4.
can someone tell me the name of the game he is playing on ps3
Oh, how cool would it have been if you were able to play every PS3 game on the DS4? Oh well, I wasn't planning on it working at all.
Well, I'd buy one DS4 for my PS3.
