No DualShock 3 support for PS4
Sony exec says next-gen platform will not support current-gen controller, but existing Move inputs will be compatible.
DualShock 3 controllers will not work with the PlayStation 4, though current-generation PlayStation Move controllers will. Sony president of Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida confirmed the news this week during a roundtable session in New York City attended by GameSpot.
"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.
