PlayStation 4 doesn’t require always-on connect, not compatible with DualShock 3


Okay folks, I have good news and bad news. What do you want to hear first?

Squashing my fear of having to constantly be online and sharing things, Sony Worldwide Studios head honcho¬†Shuhei Yoshida has clarified the internet requirements for Sony’s PlayStation 4. In speaking to GameInformer, Yoshida joked around saying that Sony understands folks who are “anti-social.” Great, now I can play my games without you lot trying to mess with me.

But as with all good news, there is some bad news. Yoshida-san spoke to ShackNews about the possibility of using DualShock 3’s on the PlayStation 4. And it looks like it’ll be a no-go. However, the system will support the older Move controllers. So, that’s a thing?

What do you guys think of all this? Naturally, I love that I don’t have to constantly be connected to the internet to play single player games, but the fact I can’t use a DualShock 3 and save a few bucks for local multiplayer on the PlayStation 4 kinda stinks. But it’s understandable. Sony really wants to push the social aspect of the new system, and the DualShock 4 is integral to that.
