The Precursor Legacy logo 1 This page includes the controls for The Precursor Legacy. Originally released on the PlayStation 2, the game was later ported to the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita as part of the Jak and Daxter Collection. As such, both the controls for the standard DualShock controller and those for the Vita will be included. Furthermore, the game received official emulation support on the PlayStation 4, though the controls to that of the PlayStation 2 and 3 releases are identical, save for the Select and Start buttons being mapped to the left and right sides of the touch pad, respectively.
