Will PS3 controllers work with PS4?

24 Replies 277,863 Views Created 09-06-2013
Will we be able to use PS3 controllers (SixAxis and DualShock3) to play on the PS4? And how many controllers will be able to be connected at the same time? (7 is the maximum on PS3.)

You can have seven on the PS3?!? I've never had more than three in my house, so wouldn't know :D

I hope it can be... Would be nice to have a backup for simpler games, although I can see the DS3 being phased out entirely over the next 5 years.

That's a shame.

Would've saved me having to super-glue that blasted share button.

He's using a PS3 controller w his PS4.


 

 

Yes it is very simple really. He uses the DS4 on the PS4 and DS3 on the Vita TV. The PS3 uses bluetooth to pair controllers. The PS4 uses something different I believe. But then the PS Move can be used with PS4 and that uses bluetooth. Am a little confused by that one but they have said DS3 controllers can not be used with the PS4.

I can't see PS3 controllers being compatible for the PS4 TBH. You never know with Sony you could try i guess i can't see why not.

3 MAJOR points to note b4 thowing your good ol' PS3 controllers out... 1: It won't be long b4 someone figures out how to use them on a PS4 after all u can use nearly all old PS1 & PS2 controllers can be used on the PS3 nowadays along with games and memory cards, look on Ebay & u can get the adapters for less than £2 each, 2: The PS3 official controller is the controller of choice for those really great & often FREE Android games as the PS3 controller is the only controller officially for Google Android fones aslong as u buy a USB to mini USB adapter (again, less than £2 on Ebay) & plug the wire into the fone (I bought a mini USB media hub for under a fiver that plugs into my fone & in it plugs a HD lead to my TV, a charger, any normal USB device so I put a powered 7 way USB2 hub with an external hdd & a PS3 controller which now allows me to store any films I want on the HDD & play any Android games I want (which I've installed lots on to a 64gb HTC one X+ that only cost me £160 last October) or movie (or app really) on my HDTV at 1080p all the time using my SixAxis Dualshock 3 controller to control everything & my official PS3 Bluetooth keyboard to type everything (this can easily b set up as the default Bluetooth keyboard on any Bluetooth enabled device that uses Bluetooth keyboards). There IS a way to b able to use a PS3 controller via Bluetooth but it is difficult, requires u to root the fone & buy a specialised app to do it whereas the PS3 controller will work as standard on ALL Android devices if plugged in with the ORIGINAL PS3 controller charging cable & an adapterto micro USB. THThis means I can now download ANY movie, play any Android games & watch any Android TV apps perfectly on my TV, handy wen u upgrade your old smartphone & wanted to know wat the best thing to do with your old 1 is, specially as most the decent games on Android r at least as good graphics as a PS3 AND an awful lot r completely free aslong as u don't fall fowl to the now infamous 'in app perchases' (Not to mention there r a lot of emulators now available for most the old consoles & arcade games aslong as u find the ROMS for them, also i have way more TV channels than SKY & SKYGO signed in on my parents account for FREE & I have an app that finds & downloads movies to my fone within days of them being released in the cinema & my final creme de la creme is a cool little app that replaces the standard YouTube app, allowing me to download any video I like even INCLUDING the ability to chose any video download as an MP3 & it properly converts the video file to MP3 instead of just saving it as a .MP3 wen it's really still a video format like most do meaning I can look up any music track on day of realise & save all the different versions to use with my MP3 player or watch ANY movie AND MOST TV show boxsets & TV stations at ABSOLUTELY NO EXTRA COST TO MYSELF ANYTIME making it well worth investing in a decent 2 year old 2nd hand Android fone like a Galaxy S3, Sony Z or HTC one X+ (with the HTC one X+ 64gb fone being by far the best as not only does it do all this with an included 64gb of app install space (everything else pales to this as its even just listed ad a single internal memory where everything else is either nowhere near as big or split up as an internal memory & emulated SDCard meaning u can install as many games & even though it doesn't have an external SDCard slot the usb multi hub I have also includes a micro SDCard & normal full SDCard slot allowing them to b used through this and I've got a multi memory card USB reader in my USB hub allowing me to use ANY other memory card). Also remember a good smartphone records normally in HD nowadays as standard (HTC One X+ 1080p at 30 frames per second), meaning that it will double as a perfect Camcorder (with camera & editing features) & using a few FREE apps like a motion detector, IP camera, backup recorded video to a cloud drive like the FREE Microsoft 10gb Onedrive or Googles FREE 5gb GDrive while transmitting online in real time after allerting u by call, app message, SMS & email so u can act on wat u c immediately while saving all GPS data, the exact time, visual & audio safely online incase the device is comprised should someone break into your home for example while you're not there as if u have mobile data and calls + SMS available using a pay & go sim ontop of wifi & if u have more than 1 fone as a security camera they can all link via the wifi AND over Bluetooth so u only need 1 fone live incase wifi won't let them online as Internet over Bluetooth works with another FREE app meaning should anything trigger the motion dectors in your spare fone(s) u will ALWAYS b alerted AND there will ALWAYS b a Web transmission wether using your home wifi, mobile data via wifi tethering, Bluetooth tethering or if u cant tether (although I advise u do this aswell even if u can tether for live online feeds) then each device can either save directly on the live fone or save then transmit via Bluetooth or/& wifi to the live fone then uploaded as if u set your Android fones up with the mains charger plugged in they will always work on mains with a very good long battery backup that recharges as soon as the mains starts up again making basically unstoppable HD security cameras with full colour & crystal clear sound recording that will b able to capture as much highly detailed, date, time & GPS stamped evidence for aslong as possible b4 going offline while not only alerting u it can alert anybody else u want including the police & anybody within earshot as it can not only play an alarm at yourrequest but using another FREE app called 'ChargerTheft' it can sound an extra loud alarm should the charger b removed from your fone for any reason then the FREE or paid for Android security software cums into its own making it completely trackable using GPS, wifi & any other available way to pick up its location, inform u if a different sim card is inserted including it's new serial no. & fone number, & u can control anything to do with your fone not only on the security softwares website but by using sms commands AND not just using it's fone number but also using the linked security software accounts & Google accounts which work even if the number has changed aslong as there's web access. Sometimes it's handy to b able to switch features on using the voice call or SMS command options if they're off as should u want security access to your fone it's best to have GPS, mobile data, wifi, background data sync & background auto sync on so u can take full control, backup, track/trace, blank & block up your fone while all the time recording full video and audio through every feature while it saves it all on an online cloud drive, emails everything & allows u to c & hear everything live in real time or just automatically logging itself into every possible wifi hotspot to update it's location, recieve new commands & upload everything since last upload should it not have constant web access. And yes, with the right apps u can do ABSOLUTELY ALL of this & more both completely FREE using only free apps or for a very low cost should u decide u want to pay for the app. Just remember, even if u pay for your apps u will need multiple security apps aswell as quite a few other apps to do all this, I have bin using Android for over 6 years now & have not only managed to do all this with FREE apps in the right combination but I also have bin collecting apps all along, quite a few of which aren't available on Google play & i also have learned how to opt out from recieveing a lot of different types of adverts that developers use in their free apps, including the annoying notification bar adverts (I've collected 7 apps I run on EVERY Android fone I set up to permanently stop the fone receiving these for example AND INSTEAD of using stupid apps that tell u that you've granted unwanted abilities to some other apps, then telling u the only way to stop these bad abilities is to uninstall the app u spent so long trying to find & desperately want to use i use apps that allow me to change the permissions that i grant the apps so they can't start wen u turn the fone on, log onto the Web to transmit sensative info, download anything it wants & use up all your valuable credit downloading ads etc. wen i don't want them to so I have full control over everything without needing to hack the fone or 'root' it as it's called & not only have i spent a lot of time learning everything but I also yested every possible app that did owt I wanted till I found the right 1 then I have learned from experience to test that all my apps work ok together and after a long time waiting I finally found 3 good firewall apps that don't need me to root the fone to work where b4 they all needed the fone to b hacked & these make it so much easier now to control wat apps can load up on their own & also access the web wenever they want as even the easiest free 1 called 'Snoopwall' does this, for example the free game 'Batman, The Dark Night' actually has adverts in it AND in app perchases & for some reason, even though I can't find any valid 1 at all its not only unhappy to just load up wen i want to play it & then connect to the web only wen i request it to do so either by an in app perchase or pressing a menu option to do so & maybe for a split second wen i start it up to update it's ads (after all it's a PS3 quility game & i didn't have to pay owt for it so i wouldn't begrudge it some adverts, normally), it for no valid reason I can find at all loads something into the fones busy RAM wen it turns on that can't b closed that not just has full web access but it actually uses more data than my browser app every day & try as i might i really cannot find out wat its for as in all honesty all anything I run to try tell me about it ever ses is it's installed with my free Batman game & to remove it i must uninstall that game. Needless to say this isn't good enough so i used a permission editing app that allows me to change Batmans permissions & removed the permission to load wen the fone start, then after deciding I'm never intending to make any inapp pperchases I removed all permissions to access the web, then wen looking closer i found all the permissions relating to the adverts and the unknown bits ability to detect wen i shut it down & then to reload itself after and i completely removed all these permissions from the game, closed each bit using force close to c if it reloaded then went into 'Snoopwall' & told it to block all abilities the rogue bit used AND made shure the game could never access the web again and never load up without being specificly told to not just for extra reassurance but wen the app updates all the unwanted permissions ***** back & it's a never-ending battle keeping them removed at least until there was finally some firewalls that didn't need 'root'! Now, should the unwated features resurface the they now will no longer b able to run free on my fones as the firewall will not o.ly block them from the web but from loading up at all, even wen the fone starts up which would allow it to beat the firewall if it loads after as the firewall won't even allow the game to get any instructions into the fones startup file as i decided it has no reason to b able to, ever. U should ALWAYS look into optimising your fones memory, specially if using it for games as they run much better with more free RAM & without your device being destracted doing other tasks that in reality it shouldn't b doing and even the BBC Iplayer app loads up into the RAM as soon as u start your fone & refuses to close and that app HAS NO ADS and i can't find any reason whatsoever to validate it doing so and then reloading instantly if u try to close it & I've sent many a request to the BBC for an explanation & asking for them to stop it happening if it's just a mistake but many an update and over 5 years later it still does it & I've had no answer so now I block this in the exact same way as Batman and BOTH apps not only STILL work perfectly they even seem to run better, as do quite a few other apps now the RAM isn't wasted & the processor isn't destracted anymore. In otherwords, always optout from the 'startads' & notification bar ads by downloading & running the opt out apps from Google Playstore on every Android device u use AND always run a firewall and use the free permission editing apps that r on there so as to stop your fone doing watever it wants wen your not looking. A canny collection of features that u don't get told of normally AND CANNOT control on an IPhone or even a windows fone making wat i believe to b quite a few reasons to choose Android fones not as fones but everything else as they do the usual things to like diary, address book & picture editor/camera with the ability to store all your pics, vids, sounds, contacts, diary enteries & even emails in your free Google Account meaning that wenever u change your fone everything follows, even if u move to a blackberry fone. And it's all available online too. 3: U can get adapters to use the old Playstation controllers on nearly any other console like the Dreamcast & even the PC & the PS3 controller can b used on the PC & I'm positive I saw an adapter that lets u use the PS3 controller on the Xbox 360 so it wont b long b4 u can use it on the Xbox 1 & the PS4.

Throwing out your old PS3 controller is just dumb, for a start u can have a decent PS3 that plays not only PS3 games but PS1 & if you're smart enough to replace the low quality heat paste that Sony put on the original PREMIUM PS3s with the top quality Artic Silver paste that cost's no more than a tenner to fix about 9 consoles (PS3s & Xboxs too!) then also PS2 games in an enhanced quality like uve never imagined as the PS3 ACTUALLY ENHANCES PS2 games and vastly improves the games graphics making them much better than wen on a PS2 & the games that were realised on the PS2 & PS3 BOTH look like native PS3 games wen played on 1. U really should upgrade as not only that but u will have a cool 3D blue ray player that just like any standalone blue ray player not only works on the latest HD & 3D TVs but it also works just as well on the oldest tvs ever made 3 MAJOR points to note b4 thowing your good ol' PS3 controllers out... 1: It won't be long b4 someone figures out how to use them on a PS4 after all u can use nearly all old PS1 & PS2 controllers can be used on the PS3 nowadays along with games and memory cards, look on Ebay & u can get the adapters for less than £2 each, 2: The PS3 official controller is the controller of choice for those really great & often FREE Android games as the PS3 controller is the only controller officially for Google Android fones aslong as u buy a USB to mini USB adapter (again, less than £2 on Ebay) & plug the wire into the fone (I bought a mini USB media hub for under a fiver that plugs into my fone & in it plugs a HD lead to my TV, a charger, any normal USB device so I put a powered 7 way USB2 hub with an external hdd & a PS3 controller which now allows me to store any films I want on the HDD & play any Android games I want (which I've installed lots on to a 64gb HTC one X+ that only cost me £160 last October) or movie (or app really) on my HDTV at 1080p all the time using my SixAxis Dualshock 3 controller to control everything & my official PS3 Bluetooth keyboard to type everything (this can easily b set up as the default Bluetooth keyboard on any Bluetooth enabled device that uses Bluetooth keyboards).

Needless to say this isn't good enough so i used a permission editing app that allows me to change Batmans permissions & removed the permission to load wen the fone start, then after deciding I'm never intending to make any inapp perchases I removed all permissions to access the web, then wen looking closer i found all the permissions relating to the adverts and the unknown bits ability to detect wen i shut it down & then to reload itself after and i completely removed all these permissions from the game, closed each bit using force close to c if it reloaded then went into 'Snoopwall' & told it to block all abilities the rogue bit used AND made shure the game could never access the web again and never load up without being specificly told to not just for extra reassurance but wen the app updates all the unwanted permissions ***** back & it's a never-ending battle keeping them removed at least until there was finally some firewalls that didn't need 'root'! Now, should the unwated features resurface the they now will no longer b able to run free on my fones as the firewall will not o.ly block them from the web but from loading up at all, even wen the fone starts up which would allow it to beat the firewall if it loads after as the firewall won't even allow the game to get any instructions into the fones startup file as i decided it has no reason to b able to, ever. U should ALWAYS look into optimising your fones memory, specially if using it for games as they run much better with more free RAM & without your device being destracted doing other tasks that in reality it shouldn't b doing and even the BBC Iplayer app loads up into the RAM as soon as u start your fone & refuses to close and that app HAS NO ADS and i can't find any reason whatsoever to validate it doing so and then reloading instantly if u try to close it & I've sent many a request to the BBC for an explanation & asking for them to stop it happening if it's just a mistake but many an update and over 5 years later it still does it & I've had no answer so now I block this in the exact same way as Batman and BOTH apps not only STILL work perfectly they even seem to run better, as do quite a few other apps now the RAM isn't wasted & the processor isn't destracted anymore. In otherwords, always optout from the 'startads' & notification bar ads by downloading & running the opt out apps from Google Playstore on every Android device u use AND always run a firewall and use the free permission editing apps that r on there so as to stop your fone doing watever it wants wen your not looking. A canny collection of features that u don't get told of normally AND CANNOT control on an IPhone or even a windows fone making wat i believe to b quite a few reasons to choose Android fones not as fones but everything else as they do the usual things to like diary, address book & picture editor/camera with the ability to store all your pics, vids, sounds, contacts, diary enteries & even emails in your free Google Account meaning that wenever u change your fone everything follows, even if u move to a blackberry fone. And it's all available online too. 3: U can get adapters to use the old Playstation controllers on nearly any other console like the Dreamcast & even the PC & the PS3 controller can b used on the PC & I'm positive I saw an adapter that lets u use the PS3 controller on the Xbox 360 so it wont b long b4 u can use it on the Xbox 1 & the PS4.
