To quote: The DualShock 4 Can Now Be Used Wirelessly On PS3

The PS4's controller has been compatible with the PS3 since launch, though only if it was connected through a USB wire. However it now appears one of the recent updates allows for you to connect the controller and use it wirelessly.

I just came across a tip on Reddit (reddit.com/r/PS3/comments/29jpiv/ds4_is_now_supported_wirelessly_after_recent_ps3/) now, and had to try it out for myself, though the console doesn't actually recognize the controller as an official Sony one. The step by step guide is as follows:

  • Connect DS4 with wire to PS3 then turn on.
  • Go to Accessory settings.
  • Select Manage Bluetooth Devices, and start scanning for device.
  • Unplug DS4
  • While scanning hold the PS & Share buttons on the DS4.
  • When the light flashes quickly on DS4 plug back in and select Wireless Controller.
  • Let registration complete and then unplug.

4w ago - Following up on their Urban Camouflage and Glacier White DS4 models, today Sony announced that the Wave Blue DualShock 4 Controller is coming to the United States this Fall with details below.

To quote: "While the DualShock 4 controller is (arguably) the best PlayStation controller ever built, it could stand to be a bit more stylish. This fall, it will get some color with the release of a Wave Blue controller.

Other than “Fall” we don’t have a concrete release date but when we find out we’ll let you guys know. In the meantime, check out the pretty pictures below."
