Default PS3 Controller via OTG cable

So a buddy of mine gave me an OTG cable and I wanted to hook my PS3 controller to it, to try out some racing games. I downloaded Need For Speed Most Wanted but the settings don't seem to allow using anything except a "moda" controller or the phone. My buddy said it worked for him to play on his HTC One but I'm not sure what game he used. So my question is, will this work on the G2, and the issue is just game related?

I don't think you can use a ps3 controller on your phone with a cord. I do know that you can use Bluetooth with another app, it requires a little work and if you resync it with the ps3 again you'll have to do it again. Your buddy may have used an app to make it work. The MOGA controller is Bluetooth only by the way.

In short, it should work with the G2 it just needs an app to be the "middle man" between the controller and the game.

Sixaxis Controller is the app you want to use to pair your controller with your phone.

However, I have not been able to get it to work on my VS980. It works just fine on my Nexus 7 2012.
