Here is How to Use PS4’s DualShock 4 Controller Wirelessly on PS3
Sony’s latest PlayStation 4 console comes bundled with the new DualShock 4 controller. Being the latest console’s primary controller, DualShock 4 is similar to its predecessor in many ways, nonetheless, it is the most radical redesign of the PlayStation 4 controller since the introduction of DualShock. PlayStation 4 console doesn’t support previous DualShock controllers, but you can now use DualShock 4 controller wirelessly on your PlayStation 3 console.
You can Now Use PlayStation 4’s DualShock 4 Controller Wirelessly on PlayStation 3
Sony’s PlayStation 3 console has supported the DualShock 4 controller ever since it was launched with the PlayStation 4 console, though it only works if the controller is connected through a USB wire. However, now it looks like one of recent PlayStation 3 updates from Sony allow users to connect the DualShock 4 controller to the PlayStation 3 wirelessly. It wasn’t announced officially, but a Reddit user discovered the method, which is given below.
- 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.
Do note that PlayStation 3 won’t fully support DualShock 4 if its connected wirelessly, and it will not be recognised as an official one, as a result features such as vibrate and Six Axis, as well as the PS button will not work.
