DSMotion released – Motion controls for your PSTV with your DS3/DS4


I'm a girl that's liked technology from day 1. Mostly interested in the PSVita/PSP scene but I've always modded my stuff when it's possible, that is :)Contact me via DM at @KawaiiAuroraA on Twitter if you have any questions/concerns about my articles or if you have any article requests.

    Good to see the community expanding the playable library on the PSTV – it’s getting the love that Sony never seemed to bother with.

    if the vita/TV community can do this supports.. why can’t SONY did?.. or they just abandoned the device -.-

      They pretty much did as you said. Abandoned the device. As for why they didn’t add this support……They claimed difficulty in adding most vita functions to a device that doesn’t have all of the vita hardware. Although those are completely capable of being worked around as hackers are showing.

      The only thing I can’t wait for is when most plugins are optimized for retail games as well as dumps. It’s do-able. Just depends on the work ethic of the plugin developer.

    amazing just how much the community has to do to fix what sony just pushed aside, I have pirated every sony made and published game on vita that I want cus *** them they do not deserve money on a platform they abandoned and left for dead,

    I love the vita community, keen to see what comes in the future.

    This is great.
    But, isn’t more convenient to make the Vita do this all? What I mean is that if connecting a DS3/DS4 is doable, why hasn’t been doable with the Vita itself? It has Bluetooth connection too. And many PSTV users also have a Vita.
    I would buy a PSTV if the Vita was able to be used as input for it. That’ll be great.

      For Sony Vita is nothing more than a PS4 Addon, and PSTV is nothing more than a TV streaming box. They just don’t care about anything else

        I wasn’t talking about that lame brand owner. But, about those great plugin devs out there. They can do things that lame brand owner can’t and/or don’t want/care to do as they only think on their income.

    Does this work on the normal PsVita 1000? , my giroscope is not working sooooo maybe here is some hope for me

      A limitation I put on my github wasn’t reported on this article:
      “It doesn’t work well on classic PS Vita with “ds4vita”: for an unknown reason, motion control samples seems to be too much spaced over time.”
      So you can try, you will get “some” results…

      There are plugins for connecting certain Bluetooth controllers on the handheld Vitas, try one of those out in conjunction with this, worst case scenario it doesn’t work, you’ve wasted a few minutes of your time, and can put in a feature request. Best case, it just works

    Exciting times! Things are moving forward quickly!

    Pan has been hacked

  11. Sony didn’t want PSTV owners to play all Vita games they owned so they didn’t bother doing workarounds for certain PSVita-only features
