[PS4™ system] Updated 09/26/2014

General Information

The PlayStation Move controllers allow you to realize the potential of motion-controlled action on your PS4 and let you physically interact with great games. You can also pair the PlayStation Move controllers with your PlayStation Camera in certain games!

Setting up the Move Controllers

You can easily pair the PlayStation Move Motion controller and Navigation controller to your system.

Begin with the PlayStation Move controller and a mini-USB cable, such as the cable used to charge PlayStation 3 peripherals. PS4's included USB cable is micro-USB, and cannot be used with the Motion or Navigation controllers.

To set up a PS Move controller with your PS4, do the following:

  1. Connect the mini-USB cable to your Move controller, and then plug the other end of the cable into one of the 2 USB ports on the front of your PS4 system.
  2. Hold down the PS button on the controller to pair it to your console. A menu of user profiles created on your PS4 will appear.
  3. Choose the user profile that's operating the Move controller. If there are no existing profiles to choose from, you can create one.
  4. You'll then return to the system menu, and will be able to continue playing. If your Move controller is already fully charged, you can remove the mini-USB cable and play wirelessly.

Important Notes

Controls and calibration for gameplay will vary from game to game. Follow any on-screen instructions that appear when using your PlayStation Move controllers with a PS4 game.

  • The PlayStation Eye camera for the PS3 is not compatible with the PS4.
  • Games that require a camera for use with the motion controller will use the PlayStation Camera for the PS4.
  • PlayStation Move works well in a variety of different lighting conditions, but ideally you should minimize direct sunlight, glare, and the amount of backlighting from behind the player.
