Dual Shock 3 Won't Work With PS4
The new Dual Shock 4 controller is definitely an upgraded version, but if you'd still rather have the older iteration, you're out of luck.
Before Sony officially unveiled the PlayStation 4, there were rumors that the system would support the current Dual Shock 3. However, according to Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida, the PS4 will not be compatible with this generation's PlayStation controller.
Yoshida confirmed that the PS4 does support Move, but does not support the Dual Shock 3. We already knew it would be compatible with Move, because Media Molecule had an in-depth presentation during the PlayStation Meeting that focused on their new-found fascination with Sony's motion sensing accessory. And that Dual Shock 4 is awfully nifty; it has a front-facing touch pad, a new Share button (that should prove revolutionary), a built-in speaker, and upgraded rumble functionality.
Still, it would've been nice to be able to use our current gamepads.
