According to a recent YouTube video, Sony’s upcoming controller for the PlayStation 4, the DualShock 4, will be partly compatible with the PlayStation 3.
YouTube user Udetto’s video shows that the controller works when used with Urban Trial Freestyle, but its compatibility varies from game to game. Udetto says that although menu navigation works well, in-game controls for FIFA 14 don’t perform as well as they would when using a PS3 controller.
Its also worth noting that the DualShock 4 controller only works on the PS3 via a wired connection. Nevertheless, the DualShock 4 controller launches alongside the PlayStation 4 on November 15.
