Your PS4 DualShock 4 Controller Now Works Wirelessly With the PlayStation 3

By Gerald Lynch on at

Fancy going back and playing some PlayStation 3 classics like the Uncharted series or Metal Gear Solid 4, but now can't stand how the DualShock 3 controller feels after being spoilt by the PS4's DualShock 4? Fear not! You need never be tethered by the chains of wired connectivity again to enjoy the superior D-Pad and triggers of the DualShock 4 on your old Sony machine, as a new update allows the improved controller to work wirelessly with Sony's newest console.

Though you've been able to hook up the new controller to the older console over USB before now, it's the first time the PS3 console has been able to use it using a Bluetooth connection. However, it's not without a few hiccups -- recognised as a generic controller, you won't get any rumble out of the DualShock 4 on older games, while the trackpad is useless too. You can, however, use the home button to switch on the PS3 though, so that's something. [Reddit]
