    Did a quick search but couldn't find anything. Here goes....

    I've recently started playing emulators on my phone and love it! Love a Bit of retro gaming. But hate using screen as the controller. I've Googled it and know you can link a ps3 pad or a wii pad if you root your device.

    But does anyone know of a way without rooting? Or what the pads are like from eBay? Like this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NIB-wirel...UK_Mobiles_Accessories_RL&hash=item3f20298cae

    Cheers. Any help is appreciated.

    Google recently added support for bluetooth gamepads and joysticks, to 4.2 though.

    Rooting for wii and PS3 pads is mainly for older HTC devices due to their bluetooth stack.

    But all devices running ICS and above should be fine with all bluetooth controllers and USB ones
