does anyone have an Android tablet with a bluetooth gamepad?

Recommended Posts

I am considering getting an Android tablet for games and emulation. I have also noticed some pretty decent ports on mobile platforms, such as GTA 3 and Vice City, and they are $5. Console games are ill-suited for touch controls, though. Has anyone here mapped a gamepad to an Android?

If you have a PS3 controller,you can downlod a app to allow you to use a PS3 on your android tablet.there's also one for the Wii which I use for the PS1 emulator(about to get a PS3 next week).Don't know if any game would work for it but I assume if it allows for mapping controller input then it should work.And yeah there are some great console games on Android(Modern Combat,Dead Space,Dead Trigger,Need for speed Most Wanted etc.)

I use a gamepad I got at GameStop for this purpose. It has a keyboard setting so you can map it with any game that supports keyboards. It works pretty well though sometimes I feel like there's some input lag. I think that's got more to do with spotty emulation than a bad gamepad though.

 

I have heard the Grand Theft Autos have poor gamepad support though. You might want to look into that if they are on your list.

A Wii controller (with the classic controller or nunchuk if you prefer) will work equally well. I've had NO luck getting it to properly map to the Sony Xperia inputs, however.

I have a PS3 controller, Wiimotes, and an Android tablet I can barely get them working together. Does anyone have specific apps to recommend that definitely work?

I'd love to use a Wiimote to play Ur-Quan Masters.
