Is the Micro USB charging port the same as the DS3? Apr 19, 2014
I believe the answer to that is to save on cost, and the fact that the PS4 and almost every other device nowadays comes with a USB cord. Personally, I just use my cell phone charger if I'm not using the usb cord that came with the PS4.
I see the blue controller is available Sept 9th, is the red coming too? I thought they both were...? Aug 17, 2014
The red one is out but it looks like Amazon just fulfills it and not actually sells it. Plus, it is a bit more expensive than the rest of these controllers.
DOES DUAL SHOCK 4 WORK ON PS3 AND ON GTA 5 Nov 12, 2014
Are you asking if the DS4 will work playing GTA5 on the PS3? http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/07/02/ps4-controllers-now-work-wirelessly-with-ps3-consoles Good news! The DS4 now works on the PS3 wirelessly. I can only assume that it would work for GTA5 on the PS3 as well, but MAYBE some of the special features with the PS4 version won't work--like the light in the back of the DS4 reflecting the actions of the game. I'm not sure if that would work on the PS3, might, might not, don't know.
Are the sticks confortable to play with? Meaning it won't slide my thumbs by mistake like with the DS3? May 8, 2014
I know what you mean with the DS3, that was so annoying. On the ps4 they did a great job fixing that. I've played for hours some days and the thumb sticks stay durable and also they are a lot more comfortable than the ps3. The whole remote is a step up.
Can this be charged with a microUSB phone charger (wall charger) or does it have to be plugged in through a usb? Apr 30, 2014
Wait it does? So unlike the PS3 controller (which will ONLY charge from a charging dock or the console itself or a laptop left on 24/7), when my controller's running low I can plug it into my http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-SurgePlus-3-Outlet-Charger-Protector/dp/B00ATZJ5YS/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1401067989&sr=8-3&keywords=belkin+wall+charger WHILE I play with the supplied charge cable (that came with the console)? :D EDIT: June 10th 2014: Well after getting the console, I can confirm that the controller WILL charge from a wall charger, however it HAS to be a 1 amp plug. That belkin one I listed above it 2.1 amp and it will NOT work on that or the other 3 2.1 amp wall chargers I have, and it will NOT work on the like 4 .5 amp chargers I have either. It will however work on my new phone and new portable Bluetooth speaker's wall chargers, which are both 1 Amp. I guess something in the controller won't kick in to charge unless it's receiving exactly 1 Amp. Of course needing to charge one from a wall socket near you while playing becomes a moot point once you get a charging stand and a 2nd controller to swap to.
If I play plugged in 24/7, will it shorten the battery life once I decided to disconnect and use the DS4 Controller wirelessly? 16 days ago
No it wont.. But if u didn't already know. The light bar uses about 80% of the power. So if it seems like ur battery is dyin faster it's because the battery is gettin old & it's time to invest in another controller. Cause the newer the controller the better the battery life... Hope this helps
