No need to buy another Dual Shock 3! The latest PlayStation 3 firmware update, according to Engadget, now allows you to unplug that PS4 Dual Shock controller and use it wirelessly on your PS3. This makes it much easier for us couch potatoes to play comfortably without digging our elbows into the snack bowl on the coffee table.
The controller will still be treated as a generic controller that won’t sense motion or vibrate, but that’s ok. As long as it works with the game you are playing, that’s all that matters.
There is a step-by-step guide on how to get the PS4 controller to pair with the PS3 thanks to Reddit user shafiggy16.
