Although I personally couldn’t get it to work for whatever reason, many users on Reddit are reporting that, following the latest PS3 firmware update, you can now use the DualShock 4 wirelessly on PlayStation 3 (previously you had to plug it in).

Here’s the steps to follow:

  1. Make sure your PS3 has at least firmware 4.60
  2. Connect the DualShock 4 to your PS3 with the cable and turn the PS3 on.
  3. Go to Accessory settings.
  4. Go to Manage Bluetooth Devices and scan for a device.
  5. While scanning, hold down the PS and SHARE buttons on the DualShock 4
  6. Select Wireless Controller (the DualShock 4 light should now be white)
  7. Unplug it and try it out.

Even after connected wirelessly, the DualShock 4 won’t be able to execute certain commands, with the Sixaxis, PS button, and vibration functions all disabled.
