Video: How to Pair DualShock 4 Controller with PS3 to Work Wirelessly

3w ago - Today YouTube user SuperOriginalA made available a video on how to pair a DualShock 4 Controller with the PS3 to work wirelessly with details below.

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.





This isn't full recognition and as a result things like the PS button, as well...

24w ago - Below are some videos on a PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 (DS4) controller modification that offers portable PS4 gaming from FamilyGamerTV via YouTube.

To quote via Forbes (linked above): "Controlling a Vita and Dual Shock 4 improves the experience more than you might imagine. Hack them together like my daughter did and you have a new way to play PlayStation 4 games on the go - big bright screen, controller sticks, lights and rumble.

While console battles excite and drive avid gamers to buy technology early, it’s not until these devices find themselves battered at the bottom of toy boxes that we really know how valuable they are.

It’s obvious that the DS is a big success in the families I work with, not just because of the sales curve but seeing them covered in stickers, half falling apart and with an old pen replacing the stylus. Like writing their names on the underside of favorite toys, this kind of treatment is a child’s way of saying they love something.

Both grown-ups and children have been increasingly using the PlayStation Vita, but it wasn’t until this weekend that the little device really came of age in our household. It felt like we finally found some ways to use it that really fitted how we wanted to game as a family.

First, as...
