We now have native ps3 pad (dual shock 3 sixaxis pad) support on ics. No app needed.

How to

1 Connect pad via cable and use for 1 min. It will pair the pad without you knowing

2 Disconnect pad and turn on Bluetooth. Press power on pad and will come up Ps3 controller connected

3 Enjoy ps3 native without cables.

I think this is great feature on ICS. Now, I think PS3 bluetooth pad is must have to enjoy console quality gaming on ICS tablet.

Thanks for the info.

So this only works if you have the keyboard dock? Any way to use the ps3 controller if you have just the tablet?

Hmm I wonder if anyone can get this working with the pairing application for sixaxis (here)

I'm stuck since the transformer is asking for a pin ( tried 0000 and 1234 ) Maybe someone knows the pin ? Anyway to bad I dont have a dock or usb extension =(

Question
Hey guys, I'm having difficulty getting my PS3 controller working with my Prime. I did the setup as listed above and under Bluetooth settings, the controller is listed as a paired device. The Bluetooth MAC address of my controller is also the same as the address of my Prime, I verified this through an application on my PC.

When plugged in via USB with Bluetooth off, the controller doesn't work until I press the PlayStation button. The LEDs will flash quickly and the controller inputs are received by my Prime. After about 10 seconds pass, the controller shuts off and no inputs are accepted.

The above behavior is exactly the same when I turn Bluetooth on as well. If I try to use it wirelessly through Bluetooth however, inputs are not received by my Prime even though it is listed as being connected under my Bluetooth settings. Again, after 10 seconds, the controller will turn off and it is no longer listed as being connected.

Doesn't make much sense to me, I'm not sure why the controller turns itself off after 10 seconds when connected via USB, and why any inputs through Bluetooth have no effect when connected.

I don't know if this makes any difference, but in the picture posted above, the PS3 controller has a joystick icon next to it under the paired devices. On my list of paired devices, it displays a keyboard.

Can you elaborate? I'm having the same problem as the poster above you. I used the Sixaxis Pair Tool to manually enter my Prime's address, the prime detects it just fine but when I try to pair it, it asks for a PIN. I'd really like to get this working without having to buy a dock or USB dongle.
