Sony says PlayStation Now will require a DualShock controller

Geek- Sony’s big gaming news this week is confirmation that its Gaikai acquisition back in 2011 is turning into an important future business venture in the form of PlayStation Now. Sony hopes that PS Now unlocks PlayStation gaming on just about every platform you can think of, including TVs, mobile devices, and anything “new to market” they care to support in the future. (DualShock 4, Gadgets, Gaming, Playstation, Sony)

Well of course you are, imagine playing God of War on a tablet with touch controls or playing Killzone 3 with the TV remote..... Just ain't gonna happen.

This is so unnecessary.

How so? Requiring a Dualshock will ensure that no extra control schemes will need to be programmed into an existing game. I am bummed that this does seem to mean vita remote play won't be supported, but I think to get the best experience possible a dualshock should be used.

They mention DS3 as the controller of choice. I wonder if that is just a slip of the Mind (we are on DS4) or if they know of a future patch were we will be able to use our existing DS3's on a PS4?

It makes sense because it will be used for streaming PS3 games. DS4 does work on most PS3 games, but not all of them. For example GTAV won't recognize any button presses from the DS4 but Uncharted 3 and Ni No Kuni work just fine with it, when playing on a PS3.

I'd be more concerned if it wasn't required.
