    Unhappy Using PS3 controller with Infinity via bluetooth

    Anyone else had any luck connecting a PS3 (or other) controller with a Pad Infinity over bluetooth?

    I previously had a Transformer Prime and had the same experience described by many in this thread Wireless PS3 Controller with no root - when the Prime first came out I couldn't get the tablet bluetooth to pick up the PS3 controller, then one day it just worked and I was happily gaming on it ever after.

    Now I've upgraded to the Infinity and alas, no PS3 controller bluetooth goodness. I've got the latest system updates, I always figured this was something Asus fixed with an update somewhere along the line but maybe they unknowingly disabled it on the Infinity? (along with one or two other omissions from the Infinity, such as the panning background)

    I've tried plugging the controller in via USB cord (works fine) and then trying to unplug and detect, no luck. Attempting to pair through USB/BT JoyCentre doesn't work, says "No BT MAC-Address. Insert BT Dongle first!" Tried restarting multiple times, no difference. The same PS3 controller paired fine with my Prime, but I've tried a second PS3 controller just in case without result. Other bluetooth devices are picked up by the Infinity such as my iPhone and a bluetooth mouse, but PS3 controllers just aren't picked up.

    Interested to hear if anyone else has had any luck with this.

    The Infinity did not include the PS3 bluetooth driver in its current build of Android ICS. I'll bet it was an oversight or something that was not fully finalized before release or similar. Hopefully they will include it in an upcoming OTA. In the mean time the sixaxis app works properly with the Infinity and can be used to add controller support to those apps that do not have native gamepad support, as well.

    Try Sixaxis Compatibility Checker first. If it works, buy the Sixaxis Controller.

    If that doesn't work (it didn't for me on my TF700 running jellybean) - use a paperclip to clear the ps3 settings by the button on the back, then connect the controller via ps3 and go into the bluetooth settings - it should pair automatically when you press the ps button. At least it did for me. The problem I'm having beyond that is getting the buttons to map in games but that's a different issue altogether.
