PS4 Controller now Works Wirelessly with PS3 Systems - News

By Daniel Carreras, July 2, 2014

Following a recent update from Sony for the PlayStation 3, users who own a DualShock 4 controller will now be able to connect it to their PS3 and play games with it.

Under the PS3 settings, the DualShock 4 will appear as a generic Bluetooth controller, meaning it will only have basic functionality (so, for example, the Home button doesn't work).

The DualShock 4 used to work with the PS3 before, but only via USB connection. This update was initially discovered by Reddit user shafiggy16 and has since been confirmed by multiple sources.
