    You don't need to root, but I suggest you do, since Sixaxis Controller lets you add controls to any game and play wirelessly, for only $2. You need to be rooted though.

    Rooting a nexus device is far more streamlined and easier since its meant to be an open device unlike the carrier bloatware loaded crap.

    i realy want to, but im not a risk taker, if there is any chance of ruining my new device, i become extremely scared. i hacked my psp and DS, but im scared to try this or my ipod. what is the error margin for rooting

    Chances of bricking the Nexus 7 are negligible.... Worst outcome you might reasonably get would be having to reflash stock. Use WugFresh Nexus kit and it's all easy
