What guitar controllers are compatible with the PS...

I recently purchased the one guitar bundle of Guitar Hero Live and I'm wondering if the PS4 guitar controller is compatible with my PS3 console. So when I go to buy the second controller I know which one to buy.

The dongles are console specific. A ps4 dongle will not work on ps3. One dongle  for one guitar.

The guitars are all the same except the ios version. But the dongles are console specific. You can not use a ps4 dongle on ps3 or the other way around. One single can only connect one guitar.

you're right but I'm not sure if the dongle will be compatible with my console. If you read #3 on the GHL FAQ you'll see what I mean.

I went to purchase what i thought was a ps3 guitar, and low and behold, it was for the ps4.  I havent been able to find one for sale for the ps3 anywhere! 

Anyways, took it home and tried it for giggles.... And no, it did not work.  the ps4 controller did not work on the ps3.

Hello Jrich cp,

As other users previously stated, the Guitar Controller for PS4 will work for PS3 as well, as long you have the specific PS3 Wireless Receiver (Dongle). If you're in need of  further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us via our Official Support Chat: Activision Customer Support: Contact Us
