[Q] How would I connect a PS3 or Xbox controller? I googled and I'm still confused.
I have the Nexus 7 from 2013 and I would like to connect a PS3 or Xbox 360 controller with a USB connection. I've read that connecting them with Bluetooth would require me to "root" the tablet, but I don't want to do that because it will void my warranty. Is it true that I can easily use those controllers WITHOUT rooting the tablet if I connect them with a USB wire?
I've read that people have connected controllers with joysticks that worked incorrectly because the joysticks would only move in four directions instead of the full range of a joystick. They would only move up or down or left or right like a D-pad without the various motions in between that a full joystick can do.
Some people have said that some controllers require the tablet to be rooted before the joysticks work and some people say they can use this program instead: "USB/BT Joystick center GOLD"
I know people have to use an App called "sixaxis controller" if they use the PS3 controller with Bluetooth, but is it also required if people connect the controller with a USB wire? Will the PS3 controller work perfectly if connected with USB and without being rooted?
I'm so confused after reading so many Google results about this! Can anyone tell me exactly how I would get a PS3 or Xbox controller to work with this tablet without having to root the device? I need every button to work and I need the joysticks to work correctly instead of only having four directions like a d-pad! I want to try emulators!
Thanks for any help! I would hate to spend money on a PS3 controller only to find out that it's not going to work! Then I have to waste my time returning it!
