Default [Q] Anyone tried PS3 controller?

Just wondering if anyone has tried a PS3 controller on their S4 Mini?

Does it work okay?

Does it need root?

Mainly just want it for the GTA 3, VC and San Andreas when it comes out soon.

Many Thanks

Yes, tested it with sixaxis controller. As far as I remember it works without root, but then you have to connect the controller via cable. I only tested it with root.

It works with a wire? I thought S4 mini didn't work with OTG?

But it still works if you root right?

Good

Do you happen to know If PS3 controller works out the box with the GTA titles? Or do I need manual set-up?

I did a manual set up, but just google / youtube it.

It's the same on any android device. In this Video it seems like running without configuring the keys.
