    Hello Everyone!

    It's nice to see the vita with some form of life! lol. I love playing games on my vita, but would enjoy it more if I could connect my DS4 controller to play some games.

    I was wondering if its possible for someone to create a homebrew app that would connect a DS4 controller to the vita via bluetooth? Like the PSPgo. You could connect a DS3 to the pspgo and play games with the controller.

    Thats asking alot...Granted i love the psp go feature for ds3 but that was built in by sony....pretty sure we would need more than a bluetooth stack to be able to do that. Probably need to be able to reprogram the vita controls completely on top of getting the console to even see it just to have the system say i see a controller

    That would be really useful. And if you can use DS4 controller on the VitaTV, the programming code should already be there.

    My VitaTV bundle came with a DS3 controller, but I have only used the DS4 controller with it.

    Maybe someone can dump files from the VitaTV and install them in regular Vitas to enable DS4 support?

    In order to pair a PS TV/VitaTV with a controller you need to plug the controller via USB first... And I'm having a problem seeing that done in a regular Vita...

    Maybe it's something hardware or low level, I don't think that it works by just swapping the kernel, but it's worth trying.

    If you find out the bluetooth MAC address of the Vita couldn't you use a tool like SixaxisPairTool.

    Probably not until we see full CFW for the system

    well, the mystery port on the Vita 1000 is actually an extremely weird usb port. Some modder is working on making it work again. He had a conversation on twitter with yifanlu, so you should be able to find it. Its also the same guy working on a micro sd to memory card adapter.

    Nice video, but not exactly what the OP asked for, since this is restricted to PS4 games.

    Actually, the PSTV can use both the DS3 and DS4.
