DualShock 3 with the DS4 form factor

Idea 78326 | Posted in , , , by | May 25, 2015

Pretty simple idea: start selling Dualshock 3 controllers using the same casing as the Dualshock 4 (i.e.better grip, R2/L2 triggers, concave analog sticks, etc.).

would probably be easier to just make the DS4 compatible with the PS3, and turn the touchpad presses/swipes into particular set functions on the PS3.

Or just make DualShock 4 100% compatible with PS3: Home button, rumble, Sixaxis, everything. Would buy four of them & ditch my DS3’s in a heartbeat.

This is a great idea and should be called the DUALSHOCK 3 ergo. But as someone already suggested maybe it would be easier just to have a fully supported DS4 with the PS3. Awesome idea!

I would like to elaborate on this and suggest a new DualShock family, with the Ds3 and ds4 as well as a model that fills in between the two, and expand on the lineup all the time. People have different size hands and personal preferences. Additionally maybe make some kind d of box which reads up to 4 controller signals and outputs them to 4 usb ports linkable to another device via male/male usb cable. Start out playing MS in the controller game like everything else. Plus, sell more controllers. Sell tiny controllers for toddlers, eventually they’ll need a bigger one, trade it in, pick one out like a nice pair of shoes

Dualshock 4 are already compatible with PS3, only the home button will not work though. Gotta sync them as blutooth.
