Will PS3 controllers work with PS4?

24 Replies 234,742 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 :smileyvery-happy:

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.

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.

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.
