    Will it ever be possible to hack the ps vita such that you can use a dualshock 3 or 4 controller to play vita games natively?

    Not at the moment, but maybe possible. It would require at least a kernel exploit, since you would need some sort of payload running in the background of the game, which would allow for such controllers to be attached through Bluetooth.

    But I don't see it happening, in my honest opinion. After 5 years, the Vita still hasn't had any advance on even a native kernel exploit, and it doesn't look like it's going to be developed anytime soon. :/
