Nope, a PS3 controller won't work directly with a PS4. They aren't officially compatible. You might need a third-party adapter if you're desperate to use a PS3 controller on a PS4.

From my experience, only the PS3 controller is a no-go on PS4. I tried it once, and it didn鈥檛 work at all without some third-party hackery.

The PS3 controller doesn鈥檛 work on the PS4. They're just not meant to be compatible.

Nah, just get a PS4 controller. It's way better, and it's made to work with the PS4's new features.
