Lightbulb Nexus 7 + PS3 controller + GameKlip = Ultimate gaming device

What you need

or
http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Frees...151197047.html ($9)
or

- PS3 Controller
http://www.ebay.ca/itm/151134412717?...84.m1497.l2649 ($17)
- Micro USB male (B-type) connector and a Mini USB male connector
http://www.ebay.ca/itm/370872507547?...84.m1497.l2649 ($2)
- Sixaxis Controller app

I bought my GameKlip Mount from Dhgate.com because it was the most affordable option for me ($10). It doesn't come with the micro usb male cable so I purchased from eBay($2). The official Gameklip site didn't release a new case for Nexus 7 (2nd) gen model so I went ahead and bought a hard case from eBay. There is a soft silicon case alternative that costs a bit more than the hard. Everything costs pretty much under $20 which is a great bargain. Shipping takes awhile. The downside is waiting for everything to come.

Just FYI, the PS3 controller you linked to is counterfeit and I don't know how good those are in terms of quality compared to an official one.

If you live in america you should be able to find an official one at a decent price the next few days due to Black Friday sales and the release of the PS4 pushing prices down.

The gameklip is pretty neat. Hopefully they can release something similar for the PS4 controller soon.

Bought two. Both crap (pressing upwards resulted for example in going up+left). Both in the dustbin. Not worth any amount of money, imho of course

Exactly why I buy quality reputable items from reputable sources instead of searching for the cheap bargain. Wasted time is also money in my book.

Not dinging on ya or directed towards ya Pfeffernuss. Just my 2 cents is all.

gameklip works awesome with both the 2012 and 2013 N7. Not sure why he hasn't sourced a 2013 N7 case yet.... I got mine from mobilefun in the UK... took a couple weeks to make its way to me but works well... very similar to the one that Gameklip bundles for 2012.

Has anyone ordered from DHgate or Aliexpress before? I only want to buy one and I'm not sure if there's a minimum order etc?

Other options are too expensive to post to the UK!

so there are 3 things at play here:

1 -- the gameklip itself -- you're only going to find it in one place. Do the poor bloke a favor who designed and drove it to market and buy it from him.

2 -- cases for the 2013 N7 -- mobilefun is a UK company -- need a spoon too?

3 -- as of others have said buying anything other than a legit PS3 controller is hit or miss. it took myself a bad china order before I finally broke down and bought a real one.

Need a spoon? Read my question properly!

The original poster has links for the Gameklip on sale at DHgate anbd ALiexpress. I'm asking who has had good experiences from either DHgate or Aliexpress?

I understand exactly how it works, I already own a N7 2013 shell and a PS3 controller, I'm looking for the cheapest place to buy a Gameklip..
