Sony drops DUALSHOCK 3 controller support on Xperia Z3 Plus and Z4 Tablet

Sony DUALSHOCK 3 Xperia ThumbSony Mobile has ditched support to connect a PlayStation DUALSHOCK 3 controller to its latest flagship devices, the Xperia Z3+ and Xperia Z4 Tablet. When traversing the menus, you will now only find an option to connect the DUALSHOCK 4 controller, which arrived with the PlayStation 4.

This isn’t so much a concern for PS4 Remote Play, as you will (obviously) already own a DS4 controller, but for those that enjoyed playing mobile games using the DS3 this will be disappointing news.

The older Xperia Z series support both DUALSHOCK 3 and DUALSHOCK 4 controllers, however the worry is that when Sony brings out the next major update (Android 5.1) then there is a good chance that we could see DS3 being dropped. Would this even bother you? Let us know in the comments below.

The option to select either DUALSHOCK 3 or DUALSHOCK 4 remains on older Xperia Z series, but for how long?
