The PS4′s controller has been compatible with the PS3 since launch, though only if it was connected through a USB wire. However it now appears one of the recent updates allows for you to connect the controller and use it wirelessly
Can I use my X1 controller on 360 and ps4? Please.. :(
The DS4 is much better than the Xbone controller, but that's just my opinion. I hate the texture of my Xbone controller. The DS4 has a much solid feel.
@PrinceOfAllSaiyans i prefer the xbone sticks but prefer the overall shape/buttons/stick layout of the DS4. i just find the xbox controller too bulky.
Sorry, that's your opinion. The DS4 is miles ahead of the DS3, but I still prefer the xbox controller. I prefer the offset sticks, rumble triggers and overall feel of the X1 controller.
The PS4 controller is better. The xbone controller feels weird in my hands
Look at all of these people, arguing about preferences... If you like the Xbox One controller's stick layout more, it's probably because it's what you're used to. Same with the PS4's stick layout. It has nothing to do with one being better than the other. Personally, I think you're all weird. Is it really that hard to adapt to different controllers? I mean, we used to be playing with NES controllers man, and those things gave you blisters. Nobody really complained.
The only thing I dislike about the Xbone controller is the spacing of the bumpers and the clicky d pad. Granted the d pad works this time, but they still haven't gotten it up to standard.
Is this still an issue on the Xb1? Xbox one Dead Zones COD:G https://www.youtube.com/wat... Xbox One Controller Deadzone Check - [BF4] https://www.youtube.com/wat...
coming from someone who isn't an n4g sony fangirl, i have both & got to say they are both pretty much the same expect xbones analogues are more loose giving you more precision if you're someone like me who plays max sensitivity then xbones the better choice, on top of that the grip of the xbones analogues are better, as well as the triggers... also battery life is superior i can go without charge for a few days where as ps4 needs charging everyday. but hey chill bunduru lovers they are both pretty much the same. i'd say the ps4 controller is very similar to the xbox 360's, which is a good thing.
@FayZ_ http://en.m.wikipedia.org/w... You could use some of that.
I'm I the only one who prefers the parallel layout of the ds4's sticks over xb1's offset layout? hmm The triggers are better on the xb1's controller imo. With that said its time to boot my ps3 again and play some Bioshock infinite with a DS4 this time! Any compatibility issues? you guys know of?
I still prefer the DS3. And I play many PC games with it, but it's a good decision to make the DS4 compatible with the PS3. This is the way to go: consumerfriendly decisions. A windows driver would be nice for both SONY controllers though. They could sell tons of them, because about half of the gaming community loves those controllers.
google: CronusMax you're welcome.
Cronusmax dont actually have full support for the playstation 4 yet so you cant use your xbox one controller with it but you can use your dualshock 4 on the xbox one
Don't see why you'd want to use your X1 controller on 360. IMO with the exception of the bulging battery pack and d-pad the 360 controller is more comfortable better feeling controller.
I used to love the 360 controller, but after using the X1 controller I can't go back.
I haven't had extensive use with X1 controller, played a few races on F5. The plastic is feels flimsy like i could easily snap the controller in half, the bumper buttons are awkward, the controller feels smaller, also the sticks feel too small. Like is said though i haven't had i extensive use, so maybe it would just take time to get use to.
Hell no the 360 sticks feel aweful after playing alot of xbox one. However the Day One controllers feel alot flimsier than the later ones. I got one a few weeks back that feels tonnes better.
Now that we have that option why the hell I can't use my injustice fight stick on my PS4 they look so good together
Yes you can use your xbox or any controller on any system just search CronosMax/Titan One. ;)
Now if they would make the ds3 compatible with my ps4.
It is, but only on certain games :) Games which require the touchpad definitely don't work.
I've noticed fighters work better with the DS3 controller, and I also have an arcade stick I'd like to work on the PS4 so I can play some fighters easily (when more start getting released).
I'll give you credit from one perspective. I bet that PS3 controller lasted and will last a heck of a lot longer than the PS4 controller. Touchpad? We need it apparently but as they say, where's the beef? http://www.ps4accessories.c...
Nooo that would mean you don't have to buy a bunch of new controllers and less sales for Sony. Only nintendo is cool enough (has enough cash) to do that.
Still not compatible with gta 5 :(
Get a CronusMax
Thats cool. :)
Aww I thought this was official support. Nice tip nonetheless.
I was thinking the same thing. It is a cool tip though, at least now when I want to use my DS4 I don't have to set my PS3 on the end of the bed. Lol
I was literally just wishing I had this an hour ago. Although I always loved ds3 it's so hard to go back to now after using the ds4
Prefer using DS3 on my ps3.DS4 feels weird and wrong when i play the last of us. But i will be using dual shock 4 on TTT2 :D.
This is awesome news. My PS4 has been sitting next to the PS3 for months and I would switch back to the ps3's controller not knowing I could use the superior 4 controller. Will start using right away. Thanks for the info.
I have a CronusMax as well and it works 100% with every game on the PS3. It even works wirelessly with a bluetooth adapter. I've been playing GTA V with the DualShock 4 for months now.
Who cares? People who want to use the DualShock 4 on their PS3 and have it be compatible with all games. Right now, the DualShock 4 is only compatible with some PS3 games, so it's not really a great option for the PS3 out of the box. However, the CronusMax lets you use all of the DualShock 4 functions (except for the touch pad). The PS button, rumble and sixaxis all work with the CronusMax. 100% of the time.
The only two issues I had with my DS4 were: battery life and the thumbsticks. However I changed them both! upgraded the battery from 1000m to 1800m and installed the XB1 thumbsticks (there are truly better in my view). Both items were on Amazon and multiple instructions to properly install them are found on Youtube.
Do the shoulder buttons still have that spring in them? For some reason with DS3 I could never get the dang spring to go back in.
I haven't had any issue with the rubber on my DS4 thumbsticks yet but I've only owned the PS4 for about 2 months. I really hope it isn't as widespread as I've heard, but if it is Sony really should release a new version of the controller with improved battery life and more durable sticks. Otherwise though I love the controller, the design looks and feels great. I've noticed that the DS4 has been out of stock on Amazon for awhile now, and it says usually ships in 3 to 5 weeks. Have there been production issues or is Sony releasing a new model? http://www.amazon.com/PlayS...
That's pretty Sweet! I was playing GTA V yesterday wishing I could use my X1 controller on 360, MAKE IT HAPPEN!
I keep doing the steps but wont detect anything?
Same here. It doesn't work.
Yea i am sitting there like an ass holding down the buttons for like 4 mins when it hit me, i just got rick rolled :(
I did it you have to pull out the chord as you hold the ps and share button. figured this out just now
@jocomat9 Awesome thanks it worked.
i did a tutorial to show it works. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
About time! Still quite odd that the psn button doesnt work O__O
YES YES YES YES... AND YES! Edit: Now they need to make the PS button work
Now this is a cool feature. I wish the X1 could do this.
I can't get it to work. I got all excited for nothing. This process simply doesn't work with a PS3 Super Slim. That said, if anyone was successful and got this to work then please let me know how you did it because it won't work using the process stated here.
People on this site seriously have issues!!!
Not working on my Slim PS3. I hold down the buttons as directed during scanning and it just scans indefinitely. No change in color on the DS4 light either.
Same here. Maybe we're going to get the update that allows this function today for the US.???? IDK.
You have to press the buttons while the DS4 is disconnected.
1.you make scan fot BT 2.unplug DS4 from PS3 3.press ps button on DS4(make it on , so ur PS4 get on too) 4.Hold share and ps button while DS4 is connecting to PS4(dont stop holding buttons till PS3 finds it) That is how I get it worked
This works out perfectly, the hdmi-cec allows me to use the PS button with my tv remote, and the Ds4 does the rest
Now they just need to fix the PS3 to perfection then we have 2 ageless systems to use (even if the ps3 will die out around 2018)
Super slim not working :( oh well.
Ain't working on My super slim PS3, SO MEH!.
same happened to me and how I got it to work was...while the PS3 is searching for a BT device unplug the DS4 from the ps3 and hit the PS button so that it powers up the PS4 and at this point you should hit the share/PS button and it should pair up with your PS3
God I wish I could use my DS4 to play Killer Instinct on my Xbox One. The Xbox one controller is brilliant but not for fighting games. I've a blister on my thumb using the X1 controller but I can't stop playing because KI is so incredible!
People you have to pull out the chord as your holding the share and ps button while the ps3 is scanning to get it to work.
Hah that worked!., well played m8!.
crucial step missing from the article lol
I'm on my 3rd ds4 controller idk what kind of material they made the ds4 out of but it breaks very easy and I've had my ps4 since launch.
I'm on the same one since release. Seems to be just as sturdy as my 3 DS3 that have never gone bad.
Am I the only one who thinks the ds3 is a better made controller? Only problem I had in 6 years was the battery died. Only had my ds4 8 months and the l1 button would stick my analog on the left (l3) is getting worn and the battery life isnt so great. Even with the patch that let you dim. Its beyond understanding why you cant turn the light off completely. Am I alone here?
I like the battery life of the DS3 in comparison, but otherwise the DS4 for me is a better controller. Haven't had issues with mine yet. As far as the light, you can't turn it off because it seems to be integral for certain things and instead of having it turn on only when those things are enabled, they instead just keep it on all the time.
Yes I got mine to work :D.I dont know if it makes a difference but I used it on my 60GB Launch system.
