"No, [the PS4] doesn't support DualShock 3," Yoshida said. "But it does support PS Move."

During the PS4 announcement presentation this week, Sony-owned developer Media Molecule showed off a technology demo where players used a PS Move controller to sculpt 3D objects.

As for the PS4's new DualShock 4 controller, it includes a front-facing touchpad, a new Share button, a built-in speaker, and upgraded rumble functionality, among other additions.

Yoshida's discussion touched on numerous other topics, including The Last Guardian, why Sony did not show off the PS4 hardware itself, and used games. For more, check out GameSpot's recap of the executive's roundtable session.
