Default PS3 Dual Shock 3 via Bluetooth. - 04-28-2009, 09:27 PM

Has anyone managed to use a Dual Shock 3 controller via bluetooth dongle? I'm only interested in this due to the directional pad being far superior to that of a 360 controller.

Ok, it seems I'm the only one interested in this idea. If anyone has both a Sony branded PS3 Controller and bluetooth capability, would they be willing to try this for me? After some searching, I stumbled on this blog post with instructions on how to accomplish this. I really don't want to run out and buy a bluetooth dongle and ps3 controller and have them not work. Here's the link http://davieslim.wordpress.com/2008/...ess-bluetooth/.

Great forums, I come here every day.

I have been wondering this myself. I have also been looking into other possible solutions for a bluetooth controller, my biggest concern is how much battery drain there will be both for using it to play games for a long time as well as charging it via usb cable. I might try it out this weekend shortly after i get my mini9 :-D

I know for a fact this can be done in ubuntu, you can search the ubuntu forums for more info.

I have no idea if you can do this in windows.
