If Sony introduced its PlayStation 4 in the world earlier in the week , the manufacturer has unfortunately eluded some topics, such as the design of its new console, its price or its compatibility with existing accessories. Yes, and the question everyone asked was of course whether the PlayStation 4 would be able to connect to the PS3 controller and thus the DualShock 3 . Finally, the information has fallen during the night and the answer is pretty clear, it is even a word: no . That way, at least, is clear.
It is now official, it will be impossible to use a DualShock 3 with PlayStation 4. Why? The whole question is, of course, but some think it is actually very logical considering that the PS4 will offer no backwards compatibility with the PS3 games. Why not, after all, but it is nevertheless very regrettable.
As you probably know, the DualShock 4 brings a number of new features among which we can mention the inclusion of a touchpad or the presence of a sensor similar to the PS Move . It's great, obviously, but it also means that the new controller will cost a bit more expensive than its predecessor. Knowing that the PlayStation 4 should be sold with one controller, we need to invest in a second controller if we want to play with friends, or even family.
And the problem is finally here. New, the DualShock 3 is proposed around 50 €. Given the specifications of the DualShock 4, it should cost a bit more expensive and the price could range between € 60 and € 70 in the best case. Is the price of a new game. Obviously, if the PS4 was able to support the DualShock 3, we could refrain from this investment and all would have been much simpler.
Ultimately, it is a shame and while we're at, we also know that the PlayStation 4 should not be able to play audio CDs.
