so... the PS3 controller works with my and other android devices, but it's an "external" controller

i have a small idea that i have no idea how to excute in real life, so i look for advice
to sumerize it is one pic (better then words)
i want to somehow "split" the PS3 controller so i can put it on the side of the smartphone having it's pcb behind the phone.

An easier and much less ridiculous looking option would be to have a holder integrated in to the controller so that you could mount the phone over the buttons.

It's been done. I've seen about 4 different variants of the same idea, here is one.

And here is another.

Additionally, just get yourself a PSP, Vita, or DS. The games are much better, and if you're going to carry around something like a ps3 controller or whatever, you might as well carry around a real gaming device.

(I used to carry a datel retro wiipad or a ps3 controller to play emulated games.....but trust me, ladies would much rather see you playing a PSP, and even that is a curse)

Seems like it would be better just to pick up an Xperia Play, no?
