PS3 controller for Xoom Family

2011-11-24, 14:23 PM

Did anybody succeed in using a PS3 controller for the Xoom Family (connetted with the USB OTG Cable)? I want to use it for Snesoid and the other emulators.

Mine lights up but can't do anything with it. I tried to reassign the keys but when I press a button nothing happens. It seems that with the normal XOOM is recognized without any issues. Or any luck with another controller?

@alescorpio,

I own both the Xoom 4G and FE (plus a cool Delorean!) and the 4G was only able to utilize a PS3 controller using an OTG  USB cable after the Honeycomb 3.2 upgrade. The Operating System provides device support and since the Xoom is a GED device, Google owns that capability. Since the Xoom FE is still at Honeycomb 3.1, I would bet this is the limitation to utilizing a PS3 controller as an input device. There is still no word from Motorola on the timing for 3.2, but they have committed to upgrading the Xoom FE to ICS, so that may bring the host support you are looking for.
