Dualshock 4 compatible games list

22 posts in this topic

Hello as you might know the Dualshock 4 controller aka Playstation 4 controller is use-able on the Playstation 3.

And if you are like me, a guy that don't really want to go back to the smaller version of the Dualshock series you might want to use it.

But there is one slight problem, it isn't working with all games ever created on the Ps3. The home button, the touch pad and saxis will never work on it but some games support all other buttons! If you find any flaws with the list tell me what it is and I'll see what i can do :)

 

If you own a Dualshock 4 and a game that is not on this list please test it out and post a reply on this post saying what game and what buttons actually worked with it.

Press CTRL + F to find the game you are looking for!

Ben 10 Omniverse doesn't even respond to a DualShock 4. One Piece: Pirate Warriors works perfectly though.

Blast Factor is another for the non-working/slightly working list. You need the tilt feature to use a special move that sends a wave across the area to push the enemies around, but it doesn't work with DS4. I think it would've been a better game if the wave technique were mapped to a button instead of abusing the Sixaxis gimmick. The wave control is very touchy and it's easy to trigger it when you'd rather not.

Working Games

Darksiders 

Minecraft 

Up

 

Slightly Working Games

Lollipop Chainsaw should be moved, you can't aim the chainsaw blaster with the dual shock 4, see this thread for more details:

 

Killzone 2 should be moved into this category too as there are several wheels you have turn with Sixaxis controls throughout the campaign.

 

Non-working Games 

Flow can't be played at all since it is all Sixaxis controls.

You can turn them by mashing circle and L1+R1.
