Has anyone tested a bluetooth gamepad with the Infinity yet, they they would recommend? Maybe the Phonejoy, or...?

I assume I want bluetooth so I can use it without having to have the dock or a USB adapter connected, but I'm not sure if there are any drawbacks to bluetooth over wired/or wireless USB. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

I'm sure the ps3 controller works since it does with the prime.

I use the sixaxis tool which requires root but I got my dualshock 3 paired and working in no time.

I hope it works right with the Wii Classic Controller, that's all I have until I get the dock and can plugin an Xbox controller (I wonder if the wireless adapter works?). The Classic controller usually works great on my phone.

Xbox Wireless Controller works with Shadowgun, Riptide, GTA and Death Trigger.

Just plug-in the wireless receiver into the dock, and push the xbox symbol on the controller.
After a while, the blinking changes, and you can use the controller.

Badly, it doesn't stop blinking alike when you connect it to a PC or an Xbox.

I also was able to connect PS3 controllers to the Infinity via sixaxis, the controller also worked with all the games i wrote .

Unfortunately PS3 gamepad doesnt work via bluetooth. It works with TF300 though. I thought the same method of attaching via USB syncing with it and removing cable would work. I see PS3 controller in bluetooth paired devices in TF300, not in TF700.

Lightbulb PS3 Controller will work with root plus utils
I was able to get a PS3 DualShock controller to work via Bluetooth with my TF700T + dock and root.

I plugged the controller into the USB port and then used PS3 Controller Pairing Tool to set the Bluetooth MAC address and then start up Sixaxis Controller app (requires root) to get the bluetooth link working.

PS3 Controller Pairing Tool:

Yes, I know that. I used that config with my old Samsung 10.1, but I don't want to root TF700. With TF300 it works out of the box. Same company, 2 tablets with so similar specs, and what works in a recent model does not in a newer one. Hard to understand.
