I'll make it simple.
First Time Setup
1. You get the application from Play.
2. Run it.
3. Hit the start button in the app.
4. Connect controller via USB cable. (you need it anyway to charge the controller)
5. Hit Pair then hit OK button
6. Unplug the controller
7. Hit the PS3 Button on the controller
8. Wait ~10 seconds.
9. Paired and Done! Now you can game.
Each Time You Want to Game
1. Start Sixaxis App
2. Press Start in App
3. Press PS3 button on Controller
4. Wait ~10 seconds.
The above "each time you want to game" takes 15 seconds of your life to use a quality controller, so its REALLY not a big deal.
Just, don't buy PS3 controllers from ebay =) You have been warned!
Are we requiring root for the above processes to work with Sixaxis? I really don't want to root my Infinity, because I don't see the need to. But I also want a controller that will work well. I wonder when Ouya releases there system, if there controller will work universally across android devices.
I didn't want to get an Ouya system though, because of there refusal to leave the standard android market on it, and refusal to support existing games. All games have to be purchased through there own app market.
