Amazon shipping Dualshock 4 now!

17 replies 346 views Edited Oct 27, 2013
I got an email today from Amazon informing me that the Dualshock 4 I preordered has shipped and expected delivery on Oct. 29. Can't wait to try it on my PS3.

Weird

 

I purchased PS4 the day it was announced, and a few minutes later I placed the order for the Camera and the DS4. I have not received any notice about getting either the Camera or DS4 shipped.

I went to "Best Buy" last night and saw they had a crap load of Dual Shock 4s and PS4 Cameras for sale. I was tempted to pick up a DS4, but thought twice about it. I'd rather experience it for the first time when I boot up my PS4 Smiley Happy

It won't work on your PS3, it's a DS4, not a DS3!

It works as a wired controller.  A couple of things:

 

The PS button, accelerometer (sixaxis), vibration and the touch pad do not function at all.

Options = Start

Share = Select

 

Other than that, all of the other buttons work as they do on the DS3.  As long as the DS4 is connected via USB (the DS4 requires a micro USB plug as opposed to the DS3's mini USB).  You can get a mini USB to micro USB adapter for about $15, or a 6-foot USB A to Micro USB cable for about $18 at Radio Shack, either will continue to funtion with the PS4.

 

It seems as though the PS3 is recognizing the DS4 as a wired third party controller.  As such, it is unlikely it will work with ALL PS3 games (Flower and flOw come immediately to mind, since they use sixaxis almost exclusively).

 

I was able to complete an entire Journey using the DS4 last night.  Of course, sitting only 6 feet (the length of my USB cable) from a 42" TV got rather uncomfortable.  My flying ability was also slightly erratic due to the fact the camera is adjusted almost intuitively by the sixaxis control, which, as stated, does not function on the DS4.
