Lab Zero Games Looking to Bring Dualshock 3 to PS4

Skullgirls developer Lab Zero Games are looking for somebody to help them develop a Dualshock 3 driver for PlayStation 4. It seems like Sony have allowed for developers to write drivers for "unsupported USB devices," presumably allowing for individual title support of things like Rockband instruments, however Lab Zero's Mike Z is hoping to bring back last-gen's controller for Skullgirls Encore. (PS3, PS4, Skullgirls: Encore)

no kiddin, i have alot of DS3 laying around and i wont buy more than 2 DS4 so it will be good to play multiplayer games with 2 DS4s and 2 DS3s

I think the aim for this is to allow PS3 arcade sticks to work on PS4.

When's the PS4 version coming out?

The DS4 has triggers that are more in tune with shooting games than fighting games so that alone could be reason enough to want to use a DS3.
Aside from that there's the local multiplayer thought seeing as many PS4 owners might not have a second DS4 but are likely to have a DS3 lying around.
The DS3 also has pressure sensitive buttons though I doubt Skullgirls utilizes that feature on PS3.

last ps3 update and everyone that's in psN beta are able to do this so your wish has been granted already bummer.

Outside of how long the battery lasts in a DS3, the DS4 is 10X better in every way.
DeadlyOreo  +   165d ago
Completely agree. I love the Dualshock 4, but the battery life for it is the bane of my life.

uh... why?

That'd be great for local play
BitbyDeath  +   165d ago
Yup, this.
I already have two PS4 controllers so it would be great if I could use some PS3 controllers for four player games.

Ds3 put me off the ps3,why bring it to a console with a hugely improved controller?
Yodagamer  +   165d ago
It's simple since fighters tend to be a multiplayer affair. By putting the ps3 controller support in their game it means people without an extra ps4 controller use their ps3 controllers which alot of people have.
Immorals  +   165d ago
Yeah but how many people that buy fighters, don't already own 2 controllers?
Doge  +   165d ago
They're probably doing this for those who prefer playing Skullgirls with the DS3 compared to the DS4. I could be wrong, but then again, I haven't tried playing a fighting game with the DS4.

Stupid idea. SG plays fine with the DS4

Bring back last gen arcade sticks to the PS4 because after moding my stick I do not want to spend another $100 for a new one.

I would use the DS3 a lot on PS4. In all honesty because of the genre of games I play I prefer the DS3. DS4 TRIGGERS ARE SPECIFICALLY FOR SHOOTERS, and I hate that so much. I also don't even like the analogs too much.

(Sorry for that small dumb rant)

It needs wireless support!
I like the PS4 controller but the DS3 lasts more then 5x as long!

They need a new revision for the DS4 with much increased battery life, without the need for peripheral battery packs!

I hated the dualshock 3. Dualshock 4 is great though.
