Nexus 7 ps3/ wii classic controller compatabillity
« on: August 15, 2012, 12:01:01 PM »
So I was wondering If any of these apps were compatable with a ps3 controller or a Wii classic controller.

- modern combat 3 -
minecraft pe
- emulators (I know they work on a Wii classic using wiimote, but can you use a ps3 controller?)
- sims 3
- real racing 2
- samurai 2
- Bang bang racing
- galaxy on fire 2
- vendetta online
- backbreaker
- Guerilla bob

If your device is rooted and you install the app Sixaxis from Google Play they should all be configurable...

Check this out...

I don't really want to root. I've heard it can be risky.

I've rooted two Android phones and my N7, nothing risky if you research and do it properly!
But it's your choice, I wouldn't persuade to if you didn't want too.

I'll think about it. Do you know if you can use a controller on any of the apps I listed without a root?

I'm not sure but there's an app called Tegrazone that spotlights THD games. If you click on the Games tab you'll see a few games that are listed as controller compatible.

If you install an app called "Sixaxis" most games will be useable with a PS3 controller.

What about my Logitech Attack III joy stick?  Think I'll give it a try with Asphalt 7.

Update:  Wow, I can't believe it but it works really cool.  Just lacking one function though; the N2O boost.  Other than that it steers and brakes very nicely.  Cool!

No sure mate, you'd have to check the Sixaxis app for controller compatibility.
