Update:

The DualShock 4 Can Now Be Used Wirelessly On PS3


Connect DS4 with wire to PS3 then turn on.
Go to Accessory settings.
Select Manage Bluetooth Devices, and scan for device.
While scanning hold the PS & Share buttons on the DS4.
Select Wireless Controller. The DS4 light should now be white.
Unplug wire and test it out.

If you have any to add please post them and I'll add them to the OP. Could you also capitalise them to make it easier for me to cut and paste. Thanks.

NOTE: Motion sensing and MOVE aren't supported, and neither is rumble

Everything should work. It was already explained that EA made it so USB pads didn't work with FIFA because of some weird phenomenon with that game, specifically.

Kind of crappy that the PS3 just sees it as a generic controller. They should just go ahead and update the console with DS4 drivers so they can offer full compatibility, wireless support, and so the console recognizes the PS button.

I feel this should be added to the OP. The Dualshock 4 controller should work natively via USB or/and bluetooth on Windows (desktop versions), Mac OS X, Ubuntu Linux, Google Chrome OS, iOS, and Android Jellybean 4.2.1 & up.

I'm not sure if it'll work on Windows RT. It definitely won't work on Windows Phone 8, because Windows Phone 8 still doesn't support Bluetooth HID devices.

Totally agree. PS3 will have legs and will still deliver great games in the upcoming months and years. I think this is a great opportunity for SONY to familiarize the gamers to the DS4 just by adding driver support to the PS3. I would like it to happen so i could use those shiny new DS4 controllers natively on my PS3.

I think part of the reason the Dualshock 4 doesn't work wirelessly on the PS3 is because the PS3 use Bluetooth 2.0, while the Dualshock 4 uses Bluetooth 2.1.

Not like you need rumble to play any game these days. Only time I found I needed to use rumble was handcuffs in Double Agent but even then you could just get out of the handcuffs by listening to the sounds from your tv/headset.

i still play with a Sixaxis and havent used rumble at all.

And wouldnt games like Killzone 2&3 be in the "non working" section as they have forced motion sensor use? Atleast with planting explosives?

Hopefully it will work with 3D Dot Game Heroes, too, which is the only PS3-exclusive I'd really want to play. Since the PS4 controller is a huge improvement over the PS3 one, I'd much prefer playing it with the PS4 controller.

Incidentally, DS4's are being sold on gamestop's website and, according to the website, are apparently in stock. "Ships within 24 hours"

I can't justify buying a PS4 for a while (stupid fiscal responsibility) but I'm gonna get a DS4 as soon as I can. I never thought I would say that. I can't be the only one, right? Sony should definitely think smart and offers some official support for this thing to encourage even more people to dip in. It's not like it would harm sales of PS4. Plus, the profit margin on accessories like controllers is huge. It's not like they're losing money with the actual PS4 units.

I would have been really tempted to get a DS4 for PS3, but that's too many compromises to justify buying one for me personally.

Was excited when I tried Fallout: New Vegas and initially it seemed to work great with the DS4. Then I tried going into VATS; no L2/R2 trigger recognition. Oh well, the game froze 2 minutes later anyways.

No sixaxis/motion is really sad, I can't play Folklore using this controller.

hopefully they'll update PS3 for better DS4 support in the future.

Can we assume that if the game works with other DirectInput controllers then it will work with the DualShock 4?

(on that note, I know at least Journey and PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale work with a DirectInput controller that I have, so those will probably work with the DS4.)

Either way, I'll be able to test for myself in a couple days!
