    Default Emulators? Controllers?

    I was wondering if any of you guys use emulators? Today I found out i can play some of the games I used to play on the GBA and I'm in love, can the iphone do this? Anyway I downloaded My Boy! and it was extremely simple to figure out. I'm wondering is there any others I should download? Im also wondering if I can pair it with either a ps3 or xbox controller (I have both) with out root? Would i be able to use it on the emulators? Ive seen other controllers like this Amazon.com: MOGA Mobile Gaming System for Android 2.3+: Cell Phones & Accessories but it doesnt seem that they are able to be used on the s3 in the emulator games. Any recommendations?

    Yes there are emulators for all kinds of systems. I've used emulators for GBA, NES, SNES, Sega Genesis, and N64. I know there is also one for playstation. I have used a wii controller and I'm pretty sure you can use a playstation 3 controller as well. Just look for vids on youtube on how to do it. There are a ton.

    Oh and yes, a jailbroken iPhone can play emulators as well.

    You need to be root if you want to use the ps3 controller wireless. If you hook it up via usb, it will work fine non-root.

    I havent really seen many, I'd try a playstation emulator rather than the n64. The one ive seen (megan64)says it bombs your phone with ads, so i'd stay away. You can try out mupen64, but ive heard mixed reviews on it. I highly recommend "my boy" for GBA games

    Is the n64oid just from the internet?

    I'm rooted so I am able to use a SixAxis controller with my phone. I stick to the GBA and PSX emulators. I have had great success with FPse (PS1) and My Boy! Free. I used to use the N64 emulator but I would get spam and rogue shortcuts all over my home screens.

    Setup with the Sixaxis was a pain in the tush (at least mapping hw keys with the FPse) however touch profiles are pretty straight forward.
    You got to risk it for the biscuit

    I have my phone rooted as well so I use Sixaxis Controller with a Gameklip for my PS3 controller. I use FPse(Playstation) and have both N64oid and Mupen64. I mainly just play games like GTA3, GTA Vice City, and Modern Combat. If anyone is looking for touch profiles for sixaxis this thread I found on XDA was very helpful and even listed games that have native support with the PS3 controller
