    I personally like duel-wielding Zeemotes.
    Not many games support it (though most emulators do).

    I actually stopped by Gamestop earlier this week, and inquired about their Wireless Android Controller. They wouldn't sell me one, because I didn't purchase my N7 from Gamestop. They said that they pre-installed software on the N7 that makes the controller compatible with the N7 tablet, if I happened to have purchased it from them.

    Sounds like a load of BS, but if they want to talk themselves out of a sale, so be it.

    I've been wondering about Bluetooth controllers in general and if most Android games and devices support them? I've been thinking of picking up an OnLive controller for Dead Trigger.

    There are two coming out from Nyko, the playpad and playpad pro. Those are the ones I'm waiting for, specifically the smaller/portable playpad. Looks solid and I like the portability factor.

    2 questions:
    1) Will they support all games from the Play Store or will games need to individually update to support them?

    2) Will they be as portable as these (iPhone there for scale with a 7-inch tablet)?

    I like them but they aren't supported by as many games as I'd like.

    Yes and yes. They will support all tegrazone games (built with the tegra protocol) and they are built specifically to be compatible with anything and everything in the play store. Most will be it and play and if not, there will be mapping tools.

    The pro model is the size of a 360 controller and the regular playpad is about the size of an iPhone 4.

    The playpad is also going to come with a case that will double as a tablet stand, which is a pretty nifty feature for those bold enough to brave the world without a case.

    I have the gamestop bluetooth game controller. I didn't have to buy a tablet from them either. It was $40. It's hit and miss with compatibility.
    GTA 3 Works great with it. As well as emulators, Sonic 4 and some others. But it doesn't work with games like
    NOVA or the Dark Knight Rises very well. I synced one of my ps3 controllers to my tablet and phone and have
    been experimenting with that lately.

    I can't get this controller to connect. It pairs up in my bluetooth settings, but doesn't connect in emulators. Does anyone know if it has to be used on the stock rom? I'm running SmoothRom and I'm not sure if that's the issue.
