Here’s a List of PS3 games that work with the DualShock 4

dualshock 4

Plenty of people have got their hands on the DualShock 4 already. The system will be officially released on November 15 but some Gamestop stores have been selling the controller and if you get lucky you can get your hands on it as well.

The DS4 works with the PS3 and PC, although, it has limited functionality which is understandable. We have compiled a list of PS3 games that work with the controller and that includes games like The Last of Us, Killzone 3 and more.

It’s important to note that the PS button, wireless functionality, vibration and motion sensing on the DS4 do not work while connected to the PS3, and you can use a second DS3 controller to complement it.

Here’s the list of games that work:

  • PS1 Games
  • Call of Duty (MW2, MW3, Black Ops, Black Ops 2)
  • Castle Crashers
  • Portal 2
  • Far Cry 2
  • The Last of Us
  • LittleBigPlanet/LittleBigPlanet 2
  • Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch
  • Heavy Rain (no motion sensing)
  • Uncharted 1/2/3
  • Red Dead Redemption
  • Infamous + Infamous 2
  • Resistance 2 (had to use a DS3 to get past the start screen, but DS4 worked fine after that)
  • Killzone 3
  • Dead Space
  • Battlefield: Bad Company 2
  • Motorstorm (Apocalypse, Pacific Rift)
  • Tomb Raider
  • Prototype
  • Skyrim
  • Dark Souls
  • Battlefield 3
  • Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon
  • Final Fantasy XIV
  • Super Stardust HD
  • Diablo 3
  • Bioshock: Infinite
  • Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD

            Did you attempt to make sense?

          • Play

            like your taste in games.

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            no I am just being satirical with my play on words. nothing personal.

          • Slay

            By the way, you failed at that.

          • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

            i know I wasn’t trying.

          • Play

            Your standards are very low.

          • Play

            Because if you want a opinion with substance, then you would take up my word.

          • Play

            They like to milk. Would you like that 2 percent or whole?

  • Slay

    And when do these games come out? I wasn’t aware that the waitstation had any games. Xbox one is coming to slay all of your favorites.

    Go back to being your tragic self and leave the video game hobby to “real” men.

  • Carlos Shabo

    anyone try a fighting game on it yet? i held the controller and i am NOT loving the dpad

  • mark

    How is that even possible when PS3 games can’t be played on PS4.

    • Langkasuka

      DS4 has some compatibility with the PS3 console (and PC too), so gamers are checking it out. Note, not all of the DS4 capability is supported in the PS3.

      There’s a reddit group on it, you can check them out

    • AlilTussin187

      Two totally different things. Your really comparing a game to a controller. Really??? Come on and just think about it for a second and I’m sure you can think of a reason.

      • Slay

        The grudge? Your taste in movies suck.

        • Play

          Your priorities should be cleaning up the cartel pool in your pisshole country instead of prancing around on a video game article.

    • Clarence Thompkins II

      hardware vs software…think of the DS4 as a third party peripheral for the PS3

    • Guest

      $0N¥ = lies, overhype and underdeliver!

  • alex

    gta 5?

    • Gamechup

      Doesn’t work unfortunately :(

    • Slay

      Gta5 barely work as a game itself. Talk about a broken tragic mess.

      • Play

        Nothing major because the Xbox One has no AAA games.

  • Alok

    Metal Gear Solid HD Collection , Ico and Shadow of the Colossus , God of War Collection?

    • M

      Works on mgs4 and ICO+SOTC not sure about god of war, probably does work as well.

  • plcn

    don’t let that battery run out on your flashlight in the last of us!

  • Komentra

    I’m confused. How exactly does Battlefield 4 work? The games uses L1/R1 to aim and shoot and you can’t switch it to triggers.

    EDIT: Battlefield 3.

  • Mitchell Jenkins

    Actual it worked with every game I tried.including the original BioSchock, God of War Accession, and Final Fantasy. I haven’t found a game that it doesn’t work with yet.

  • Komentra

    And to think I thought the trolls on IGN were bad. This place makes IGN look civilized. (Not bashing Gamechup, just the commenters)

  • Hugo Stiglitz

    It doesn’t work with Doom 3 BFG, or GTA V.

  • bikar-nasah

    Didn’t work for me with any Uncharted. Can anyone tell me what I might be missing?

  • Josh

    Kingdom Hearts 1.5 doesn’t work for shit with the DS4. I tried it and when you try to run at an angle it simply doesn’t work. Makes the game unplayable.

  • Trey

    battlefield 4?

  • Nobody

    LOL GTA 5 doesnt work but ps 1 games do!!

  • CaesarGood

    No Metal Gear Solid??
