App puts Xperia Play handset and PS3 Sixaxis controller together

sixaxis controller app

Ok, so it may not be new news, it seems many sites missed the release about a month ago however, a nifty app is hitting the news (again) that enables a PS3 Sixaxis controller to be used in conjunction with the Xperia Play.

To use the app, you need to firstly root your phone which may put some users off and of course you need an Xperia Play and a PlayStation 3 Sixaxis controller! Once connected via a computer, the PS3 controller will then work with the Xperia Play when playing games specifically enhanced for use with the Xperia Play’s own control system, as shown in the demo video below:

Costing UK £1.04 on the Android Market, the Sixaxis Controller app can be found at the following link: Sixaxis Controller Android Market.

    Surely the point of this app is for any phone but the Xperia play…

      You’d think lol. It is compatible with other Android phones as well though but, at the moment there isn’t a list. The Xperia Play is the only confirmed handset.

    We still can’t root the Verizon Xperia Play :-(
