List of PlayStation 3 games that work with DualShock 4

Reddit user “Lapwner” apparently has confirmed a list of  PS3 games that are compatible with the PlayStation 4’s DualShock 4. The thread, aptly named “Everyone with a Dualshock 4 right now, let’s create a list of compatible PS3 games!”  has a solid selection of games, including PS1 games, that will work with the new controller. The DualShock 4 is also set to be compatible with PC games.

They go on to note that the controller must be connected with a cable. Additionally, vibration, motion sensing, and the PlayStation button are not functional. They also mention that a secondary DualShock 3 can be hooked up for use of the PlayStation button, and that Share/Option buttons work as Start/Select.

Here is the list of titles confirmed and a few that are confirmed not working according to the thread. Expect this thread to be ongoing.
