Say Goodbye To Your DualShock 3

Due to an update to the PlayStation 3’s firmware, which was first spotted on Reddit, you can now use your DualShock 4 wirelessly with the last-gen console. Previously, a USB cable was required to use the DualShock 4. You need to register the controller as a Bluetooth device by holding the PS and Share buttons simultaneously once it is off the USB cable. The option can be found under the “accessory settings.”

The common opinion is that the DualShock 4 is infinitely better than its predecessor, so this update should please consumers as they’ll most likely get rid of their DualShock 3s. But the only downside is that it is only recognized as a generic controller, meaning all rumble and motion aspects are absent. Support for said features for some games are still on the way, however.
