    My guess would be that it should work perfectly fine as it works on my Og Transformer.

    I think the Transformer Prime has a different USB design.

    So it doesn't have the same host mode as the rest of the Honeycomb tablets? That's good to know, definitely waiting on the Nexus tablet before I upgrade from the OG Transformer.

    Can't you hook up a PS3 Controller over Bluetooth?

    You can root the Prime whenever you want. According to this post:

    Once docks are available we can use the dock usb. There is a video on YouTube demonstrating it

    I plugged up my PS3 controller to my dock to play some Shadowgun THD. It played just like a console. I then thought I would just try to test the bluetooth. Yep, it detected and connected fine. When I launched Shadowgun, it detected a new controller attached and directed me to setup to configure it. It works with no rooting nor tweaking. I have ICS and .15 loaded. I just got the Prime yesterday. I will try my 360 controller next...after I eat.

    I meant wirelessly without root. I found some updated posts on XDA where the lastest firmwares allowed it to work natively now.

    Well this definitely excites me. How do we go about connecting the two? I am a bit confused. Do I set up BT searching on the TP and then hit the PS3 button in the middle of the controller? I tried that with no luck last night. Is there anything else needed?

    I am running ICS with all newest updates, and I have a PS3. I tried googling the answer, but everything that came back was dated in December and useless. Would love help on this one.

    I do NOT have the dock, though. I am just rocking the TP solo. Is the dock REQUIRED for this to work? That would be my only speedbump.

    Thanks in advance.

    Just follow these steps:

    1. Attach the Prime to the Keyboard Dock.
    2. Plug the PS3 wireless controller up to the dock via the USB cable for the controller.
    3. Press the PS Home button.
    4. Unplug the controller.
    5. Make sure your BT is on and you should see the controller under your paired list.
    6. Configure the buttons to your liking like most console games.
    7. Try not to have too much fun!


    *Note: Make sure it is a Sony PS3 controller. I haven't seen where 3rd party ones where tested.

    Afaik you need the dock just the first time so the prime can "find" it. But after that you are good.

    This no different than using the controler on a different PS3. I can assume that the dock is required. Thanks for the info.
