PS4 DualShock 4 controller can be used on PS3

PS4's DualShock 4 controller can be used on a PS3, it has been revealed.

A YouTube video from Udetto has revealed that using a USB connection allows the new controller to work with some games.

However, it doesn't operate properly when disconnected from the USB, meaning that some games which require a wireless connection - including FIFA - won't work.

Sony confirmed that the controller will offer basic functions on Windows PCs, including buttons and analogue sticks.

It was recently revealed that Sony tested different stick layouts, including an asymmetrical design as seen on Xbox controllers.

Blue and red DualShock 4 controllers will be available at launch.

The PlayStation 4 will be available from November 15 in North America and November 29 in Europe.

Sony originally planned to ship each console with a PlayStation Camera, but scrapped the idea in order to offer a £349 ($399) price point.
