Closer look at Playstation Dualshock4 Controller, Old Controllers Won't Be Compatible

Not much for the new Playstation DualShock4 controller and hoping to just use your old controller? Well, too bad.

   Sony worldwide studios president Shuhei Yoshida confirmed that "No, the PS4 doesn't support the DualShock 3, but it does support PS Move."  There was quite a few new capabilities added to the new controller: touchpad, earphone jack, move controller/lighting unit, share button, so it's not surprising news.  But considering the news that PS3 discs would not work on the PS4 and streaming support would be there to play old game (eventually), possibly meaning you would have to re-purchase games you already own, it's not the best news for money conscious gamers out there.  Especially if the rumors about the controller costing in the range of $100 turn out to be true.

About the Author - Jeremy Shane


Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea.  Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California.  When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead.  Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim.  If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
