List Of PlayStation 3 Games Currently Compatible With DualShock 4

DualShock 4 is a redesigned, re-innovated controller for the PlayStation 4. Building up on the feedback received from the consumers about the old design, with no ergonomic grip and flat slippery triggers, Sony, along with the help of its first-party studios came up with the new design which also incorporates a touchpad on the center of the controller.

DualShock 4 has been confirmed before to work with PlayStation 3, but not wirlessly, along with PC. You can use a USB cable to plug in the controller and play away without the hassle of any installation of drivers. DualShock 4 is now already available from many retailers over the world. Gamers, unable to contain their excitement, bought the DualShock 4 in advance before the release of PlayStation 4. Testing out the games on the PlayStation 3 with the new DualShock 4, gamers have compiled a list of games that are tested and reported to be working the DualShock 4 along with the games that are not working currently.
