There's still many, many questions left to be answered about Sony's upcoming Playstation 4. One of those questions in regards to the Playstation Cloud and it's ability to play PS1, PS2 and PS3 games was, would you need your DualShock 3 controller?
The answer is a simple, "no". Sony worldwide president Shuhei Yoshida confirmed the controller will not work with the new console. "No, [PS4] doesn't support DualShock 3, but it does support PS Move," said Yoshida.
Of course that might not surprise many people, however with the way Nintendo took advantage of using the Wiimotes with it's new system, it's a little odd that Sony wouldn't follow suit. It's not like they don't already borrow Nintendo's concepts to begin with.
Sony could easily take advantage of all PS3 owners and let them use their DualShock 3's to control their older PS1, PS2, and PS3 games. Apparently they're not concerned with doing so, which is a shame.
Sony making sure the Playstation Move was compatible with the system and not the DualShock 3 is even more puzzling, considering the Move hasn't fared that well in terms of sales.
The Playstation 4 is due out holiday 2013.
