Is there anyway to connect a ps3 or xbox 360 controller to the SGST 10.1? My friend has a Xoom and a co-worker recently bought the ASUS Transformer, both dl'ed the FPse for Android app (ps1 emulator) and they are able to connect a ps3/xbox 360 controller to play the old ps1 games.

Since the SGST 10.1 doesn't have a mirco USB, nor does it have an adaptor for one, there is no way that I can physically connect the controller to the tablet.

I've been trying to find info on this but I can't seem to find anything that pertains specifically to the SGST 10.1. I read on another forum that there is a way to connect a classic wii remote to the SGST 10.1 but, alas, no instructions on how to do it! :'(


Does anyone out there know how to connect any controller to the SGST 10.1? Additionally, are there any other emulators out there that are better than FPse? Thanks!

I believe both wii and plantation remotest are Bluetooth. Maybe try pairing first. YouTube Wii remote on xoom I'm sure its the same. But I don't have a tablet.

Good news bad news: first the good - Indeed, I was able to link a Wii remote and play NES and SNES, but unfortunately (the bad news) I am not able to link a PS3/360 controller to my SGT 10.1. There is however a wireless Will controller made by Datel (found a post here: Datel Wii wireless retro controller.....works! - Android Forums) that will work but, IDK if it'll work with the FPse (playstation 1) emulator (???).

I did however find an app, Sixaxis Controller (here - https://market.android.com/details?id=com.dancingpixelstudios.sixaxiscontroller&hl=en), that let you pair your SGT 10.1 with up to 4 PS3 remotes AND you can use it for all emulators including the NES, SNES, Genesis, N64 and, GBA! The only downfall? You gotta root your tab! :(

IDK if I'm really ready to root my tablet yet, I've already rooted my phone (Evo 4g), so I'm not a newbie to the rooting process but, I'm a little hesitant in voiding my warranty just to be able to connect a controller to my tablet because the tablet is so new, I just don't want to risk anything. Although, I must admit, having the opportunity to hook up my tab to my HDTV via HDMI and play GoldenEye for the N64 with 3 of my buddies does make it very tempting!
