PS4 won't support DualShock 3 controllers

This isn't that surprising. It's hardly news-worthy.

TBH I think most only wanted this incase PS4 went the WiiU way with a controller that costs top $. Obviously it has more features than the current controller, so won't be cheap, but I highly doubt it'll break the bank.

Didn't see the press conference because of work, but did Sony mention anything about headsets with the console or cross-gaming chat?

They MUST tick off that box, in my opinion. Would seem silly not to have it.

They confirmed cross game chat. Didn't mention the headset. Headset jack on the bottom of the controller.

Did you get two DS2's with your PS3 petal?

Why?


I would be amazed if anyone genuinely complains about not being able to use a PS3 pad on PS4.

Cross Game chat confirmed, and guess what? It also comes with a headset.


Did anyone, ANYONE, think Dualshock 3s would work with it? Has any console other than wii and wii u worked with prior controllers?

Didn't the PS2 support DS1's? I'm probably losing it but I thought it did.

You could use a megadrive control pad in the Atari.

It's not the same thing really is it?
