Do Dualshock 3 controllers work with the PS4?

I have 4 Ps3 controllers, can these be used with the Playstation 4 or do I need to upgrade all of the controllers to be Dualshock 4 controllers as well?

No they do not work. Since the PS4 cannot play PS3 games there is no use for it. The PS4. Controller has an additional button and a touch pad which is commonly used in games. The dual shock 3 controller for the PS3 does not have this and is incompatible with the PlayStation 4
