Report: DualShock 4 on PS3 Doesn’t Work With Grand Theft Auto V, FIFA 14, More

PSLS: If you go out to buy a a DualShock 4 controller early and would like to use it on your PS3, there are some restrictions you should be aware of before plugging in your shiny new controller through USB. (FIFA 14, Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, PS4, Tag Invalid)

Weird, I wonder why that is...

Who care's, I think we have the DS3 already for gaming on our PS3's!!!

You have no idea how good the DS4 is, man.

Scenario: Your DS3 breaks and you have a PS3 along with GTAV. However, you were planning to buy a second PS4 controller along with your PS4 that you will get in November. Does it not occur to you that someone MAY want to kill two birds with one stone by buying a DS4 to replace their DS3..as opposed to buying BOTH a DS3 and a DS4, thus spending more money?

Different people have different situations.

A man is glad we can use DS4 for ANY PS3 games so he's certainly not going to complain about the ones he can't use it for.

At least most of them work. I'm happy TLOU does!

It doesn't work on my N64 either, what a terrible product.

That is weird, it totally worked for me! It was like playing GTA V in real life!
mdluffy  +   760d ago
Don't they just need to push out a update for those games to fix that? doesn't seem like a deal breaker.

Exactly, needs only a patch to map buttons to DS4.
a_adji  +   760d ago
who the hell cares? It wasn't made for a ps3 so STOP with the sad and stupid articles

Ummm..yeah I don't know about you but when I spend $399 on a gaming machine, I want to know ALL its capabilities in and out, that includes whether the controller is backwards compatible with previous consoles. Though this information may not be useful to you personally, I'm sure it will be of interest to at least a few of the 80 million+ PS3 owners out there.

In fact, it almost sounds like your being defensive about this for some reason. Why wouldn't you want a prospective PS4 owner to have more information on what they are spending their money on? Weird.

Probably nothing a patch couldn't fix. I doubt Rockstar are going to worry about this no considering the shit they already have on their plate with GTA Online.

Who cares, as long as it works with the PS4 and PC. The fact that it works with many PS3 tittles on the PS3 is just a huge bonus.

Sony never suggested that the DS4 would be compatible with the PS3 for obvious reasons. Rather the contrary!

On PC, it even works over bluetooth. No need for some crappy proprietary receiver like the 360 pad.

The point of this article isnt to trash dualshock 4 compatibility. They're simply compiling a list of games is does and or doesn't work for on ps3... Which is very helpful

Doesn't work with GT5? :'(

Oh well, picking one up anyway. hehe
