Technically, no. The PS4 isn't designed to recognize the PS3 controller. But you might get it working with some third-party adapters.

Nope, you can't use a PS3 controller on a PS4 directly. The PS4 doesn't support the DualShock 3.

I tried using my old PS3 controller on my PS4, and it was a no-go. Had to stick with the PS4 DualShock.

Nope, stick to the PS4 controller or find a compatible adapter.
