The lights are on
According to Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony Worldwide
Studios, the next-gen PlayStation won't support the PS3's Dual Shock
controller. However, the original Move motion controller will be a part of Sony's
Yoshida said, "No, [PS4] doesn't support
DualShock 3, but it does support PS Move."
This isn't surprising news, given that the new Dual Shock
controller features a touchpad that presumably offers new controller input
mechanics for games that wouldn't be possible with the previous iteration of
the controller. Move support was also expected, as the new Dual Shock actually
features a move sensor built into the controller. However, it does mean that,
if you want to play multiplayer amongst friends on the couch, you'll have to
pony up the money for all-new controllers.

No big deal.
Is all I have to say.
Why would it work with the PS4?
Yeah. I'm not surprised at all.
That's fine. The new controller has a different interface and different inputs, along with the Move 2.0 thing built-in.
Kinda disappointed with this news but its understandable. Maybe someone will come up with a way to get them working after the PS4 has been out for awhile.
