I did this last week. Plug a micro-USB cable into your PS4 controller, then connect it to your PS3. Go to 'Accessory Settings' on the PS3, select 'Manage Bluetooth Devices', start scanning, and then press and hold the PS & Share buttons on the PS4 controller until the light bar starts flashing. Select it on your PS3, and you're good to go!

Just plug the PS4 controller into the PS3 using a USB cable. No extra steps required, except wireless connectivity won't work.

Easy peasy! Just connect your PS4 controller to your PS3 using a USB cable. It should work right away, but keep in mind some features like the PS button and motion sensors won't be functional.

Who needs extra features? Connect your PS4 controller to your PS3 using a USB cable and enjoy. But don't expect all the bells and whistles!
