I wonder when they'll make the DS4 remote compatible? Seems kinda pointless using the DS3 when the DS4 is clearly the better and only choice for the Vita touch screen games like uncharted and LBP. Seems like their just shooting themselves in the foot.

You can already use a DS4 with PlayStation TV, you just can't buy them together at the moment.

Half true, the remote still acts like a DS3 controller though. Meaning when you plug it in via USB it detects the remote, BUT the touchpad features wont work anyways so its kinda pointless.

Still a better controller than a DS3.

The DS4 and its touchpad currently do work on the PSTV. But you need to activate them before it will work. Just hold down the PS button when using the DS4 and then check the box that enables the touchpad.

The problem with games like Uncharted and LBP is that heavily rely on the rear touchpad as well. Uncharted went overboard trying to use all the Vita's unique features since it was a launch title. The front touchscreen was used for rubbings and cleaning artifacts. The camera was used to reveal secrets on blank pieces of paper. The rear touchpad was used for climbing and was the only way to row the canoe later on.
