    I haven't got ps3 so I cannot pair a wireless ps3 controller to my s3, I only have a wireless Xbox controller, does anyone know how to pair this to my phone? I don't want to be buying a wired Xbox controller and a usb on the go, can someone help me please?

    Also I do not want to root my phone.

    I don't think you can pair a wireless Xbox controller - they don't use bluetooth. PS3 controllers can be paired because they use bluetooth.

    Oh how about a wireless ps2 controller, I have one of them because you need an adapter to plug into the ps2 for the controller to work

    Xbox uses some propietary radio shiz that doesn't conform to anything else.

    Ahh, looks like I won't be able to then? Is there a connector I can use to put in a wireless Xbox controller to a usb on the go or do I need a separate controller?
