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

16w 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...

To quote: Up to four controllers are supported at once, and key mappings are completely configurable, as well as the analog sticks, which are currently emulated as digital key presses.

Important - Due to the non-standard protocol that the controllers use to communicate with the host, this application requires root access. Additionally, it is incompatible with most HTC devices and some newer Samsung devices. This is due to the required bluetooth protocol not being implemented on these devices. We are actively...

200°
232w ago - It's been awhile since our last update on PC drivers for PlayStation 3 DualShock 3 and SixAxis controllers, and recently MotionInJoy have updated them to version 0.5 Alpha which allows for using two or more PS3 DS3 gamepads on a single BlueTooth dongle.

To quote: PlayStation 3 controller (Dualshock 3 or SixAxis) driver for Windows. MotionInJoy drives your PlayStation 3 controller on Windows as a general game controller with motion sensor.

1. Two or more controllers connect to one Bluetooth Dongle at the same time (only compatible with few dongles at the moment).
2. More stable bluetooth connection (Vibration level change too fast, will disconnect the bluetooth connection with version 0.4).
3. Directx mode vibration driver.
4. Add original Xbox controller supporting.
5. Driver install program.

The driver install function is integrated into...
