In this constantly evolving world of technology, it is important to not only impart the latest technology on devices but also ensure that they attract the consumers well enough. Sony hasn’t thought this through for a very long time. It had been following the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” ideology and we can see how the iconic remote didn’t get a major design overhaul since its debut in 1997, until the Dual-shock 4 was released. Sometimes it is important to realize the importance of change and changing things doesn’t always mean that there was something wrong in the first place.
Fortunately, the PS4 gamepad managed to improve (at least that’s what the general consensus says) from a design which was already loved by all and if you liked the remote control so much that you had wished you could use it even if you have a PS3, then you are in for a really good piece of news. You can now use this controller with your PS3 as well.
Before this, using the PS4 pad on the PS3 required you to connect via the USB cable but now that the PS3 has received a major update, it extends wireless support for the controller. However there is a slight catch here. The wireless functionality of the controller might not work with a few gaming titles and don’t expect to play along with motion detection or vibration feedback.
