Ds3 are Bluetooth, but not well supported in Windows. A Ds4, and DS4 Windows (360 controller emulator) to play most games is recommended. Newer games will support the DS4 without ds4 Windows, but most older games only support Xbox controllers. If a ds4 isn't an option, I've gotten a ds3 working in Windows before but it's a bit fiddly.

Ps3 wireless may not be the same as pc wireless. There may be adapters to solve this, but i doubt there are as windows is owned by Microsoft, not sony

Agreed. A ps4 controller is more likely to work on games than the ps3 one. If you've got any money to spend, xbox 360 controllers can be bought for very cheap in most places and even where i live a new 3rd party controller is just €15. Hope this helps and good luck with your gaming
