Default Compatible Gamepad for Tab Pro 8.4

Hey, does anybody know which gamepads are compatible with the Pro 8.4? Can't seem to find any info online. Was also looking at the Samsung Micro USB to USB adapter, and was wondering will that work with a USB Controller?

Can't recall where or what device it was with, but I do remember reading someone's post (not sure if this site or another) about using a usb gamepad on the device at that another replied: wow it works don't know why it did not occur to me to TRY IT before like I mention on another post y sent for the Hdmi kit and works perfectly. if i get a otg cable or a dock i'm trying to get cheaper i'll try with my old trusty Saitek rumble force p2500 and let you know

I actually tried an OTG cable i bought on EBAY, but it didn't work. Not sure if it is faulty or what. I tried plugging a keyboard in as well, and nothing worked.

I bought some little impulse controllers for my phone and asus transformer prime. they work just fine with my new 8.4 tab pro (They're just bluetooth controllers)

My PS3 controller works beautifully on my Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 (SM-T520)
No need to root your device too, unless you absolutely want it to be wireless (bluetooth).

Install Sixaxis Enabler app from the playstore and run it (can't post URLs just yet...)
Plug your OTG cable in, then plug in the PS3 Sixaxis controller using its mini usb cable and voilą!
