Hello Fandroids, this is a step by step tutorial to show, how you people can connect a PS3 controller with your android devices. There are two ways to install your PS3 controller in your android devices. First one is through OTG cable and the second one is by using PC OR Laptop

Start this tutorial by looking at OTG cable method which doesnt require PC and laptops. You need four things to connect a PS3 controller with your device. 

1. Sixaxis Controller Software installed in your phone. 2. PS3 Controller. 3. OTG CABLE. 4. PS3 USB Charging cable that comes up to charge it from PS3. These things look like a below picture 

Once you have these things download a Sixaxis Controller software from a below link

After downloading it, access this file by getting in to your file manager which is MYFILE for Samsung devices. If you haven't got Myfile download a Dual File Manager from Play Store. Get  in it to micro sd card or internal storage download folder and install this app which is Sixaxis. It will look like a below picture in file manager download section.

Now youre ready to install a PS3 controller,  connect OTG cable with your PS3 cable like a below picture.

After connecting this cable open up a Sixaxis controller Software in your phone and you will see a msg like below picture press Yes

  11. Some phones and tablets do not support this function so it is wise to search the web to find if your device is compatible with this function. I explained a little as to why I was looking for an alternative to buying one online and let me go a little more in depth as to why I chose the DIY route. The top two reasons are, it would be cheaper and I wouldn't have to wait for it, You can make one for under 2 dollars with stuff you more than likely have lying around your house! USB OTG (USB On The Go) is a standard that enables mobile devices to talk to one another. Traditionally mobile devices could only connect to a Mac/PC by USB, but USB OTG makes it possible for devices to connect directly to each other.And that's not all USB OTG can do. By enabling your device to act as a USB host – that is, to be the boss of other devices that you connect to it – you can use additional hardware such as storage, keyboards or even musical instruments together with your handset.

  12. can support samsung galaxy tab s 2 ?

  13. enable an OTG connection, you must either use an OTG cable to connect the devices or, for directly connected devices, one of them must be physically configured to mimic the OTG cable connection. It might be clearer to think of the later configuration as two USB devices connected with a zero length OTG Cable.

  14. Hi, I just read your article and found it very helpful and informative for gamers like me. Well, if someone is looking to buy a control for PC gaming then I'd love to recommend this list of PC game controllers. I bet you will find the best one for your needs.

  15. How can I change the Bluetooth frequency or change Bluetooth input to the dualshock3 control?I can't find any pictures showing its placement.Shouldn't be hard to simply use on from anything Bluetooth and connect it after disconnecting original I simply don't know the Bluetooth input circuit is.Any help would be great I've got alot of parts,time,but no money

  16. So we can reason that while consolidated card must form the expense of a chip, it's not using any and all means enough to legitimize costs of making 2 lines of chipssuch as here : with and without. This is likely why Intel put a GPU on every single client CPU. It's also useful if your essential video card's blown and you don't have an additional. A few telephones and tablets don't bolster this capacity so it is savvy to look through the web to discover if your gadget is perfect with this capacity.
