It’s been confirmed that the Xbox One won’t support Xbox 360 peripherals. Microsoft has said that advancements in wireless technology and Kinect tracking mean that controllers from the previous system won’t be supported.
“Xbox One was designed from the ground up with entirely new technology to deliver a new generation of experiences for both games and entertainment,” read the statement sent to Joystiq.
“For example, the Wireless Controller will connect to the console using high speed data transfer to enable higher fidelity headset audio and future controller add-on experiences that are not possible with Xbox 360 wireless technology.
“Additionally, the all-new Kinect sensor’s ability to locate the wireless controller is dependent on new technology.
“In order for Xbox One to deliver robust, meaningful gaming scenarios for all users across all experiences, only Xbox One controllers and accessories will work with the new console.”

Sony is introducing DualShock 3 support to its Xperia line of smart devices, according to a report. Tech blogger Tom Randall demonstrated the PlayStation 3 controller’s functionality with the Xperia SP in a recent YouTube video.
“Sony has created a piece of software for its Xperia smartphone range that will let you connect a DualShock 3 wireless controller just like on your console,” he explained.
“[This will allow] you to play hundreds of titles optimised for gamepad from either the Google Play Store or PlayStation Mobile.”
DualShock 3 control for Android tablets and smartphones was previously achievable, but only if the device was rooted.
Randall went on to say that the Xperia SP will launch with DualShock 3 support, and speculated that the feature could come to other Xperia devices in the future.

As part of Sony’s big reveal last night for the new PlayStation 4, they also showed off the new DualShock 4 controller.
The controller has a new highly sensitive six-axis sensor and a front touch pad. There is also an LED that can identify different players.
DUALSHOCK 4 adopts the familiar form factor of the DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller with some key enhancements:
The “Share” button allows you to easily broadcast your gameplay in real-time through streaming sites such as Ustream, where fellow gamers can comment and even join your game in new ways. For example, if you’re stuck in a difficult level, your friends can offer health potions or special weapons that you can use during gameplay. You can also instantly upload images or video to Facebook by pressing the “Share” button. As both a developer and a gamer, I’m personally excited about the opportunity to get help from friends when facing a challenge, and I can’t wait to see what my friends are playing in real time along with videos of their favorite in-game moments.
On the front side of DUALSHOCK 4 is a light bar with LED that illuminate in various colors to match the color of the character in a game as a simple way to identify players. The colors can also provide useful information to players, such as when their character has taken damage during a game. DUALSHOCK 4 was developed alongside a second peripheral, a dual camera which can sense the depth of the environment in front of it and also track the 3D location of the controller via its light bar. The new camera incorporates four microphones capable of accurate sound detection and source origination, and it will support the PlayStation Move motion controller with more precision than ever before.
DUALSHOCK 4 also has a touchpad at the front of the controller as a new input method, offering more ways to interact with games. Additionally there’s a built-in speaker and headset jack to deliver high-fidelity sound effects from the games. A headset will be bundled with PS4, enabling gamers to chat with friends during online gaming and to hear sound effects from the controller.
