To bad no PS3 driver for Pocket PC

I was at Best Buy today and was looking at the PS3 Game Controller. It connects using Bluetooth. I wonder if a genius could create a driver for windows mobile's bluetooth. I would love to use a PS3 gamepad on the Touch Pro. I couldn'tthink of a better gamepad.

Re: To bad no PS3 driver for Pocket PC

i don't think it could be nearly as responsive as an actual controller... I mean, it would be cool to show up at a buddy's house and pull out your phone just to show it off, but realistically the phone is too small, onscreen buttons don't work nearly as well, and the keyboard buttons are too small to use rapidly...

cool idea tho!

He doesn't want to use his phone as a PS3 controller, he wants to use a PS3 controller as a joystick for his phone.

Re: To bad no PS3 driver for Pocket PC

Thats not a bad idea. I know when I had my Dell Axim x51v I found a bluetooth game controller for it that held the PDA in the center of it. It was to expensive so I never bought it. Would have been great for playing nintendo roms.

Heres what I was talking about http://www.alpartssite.com/y00020164...ontroller.html

Re: To bad no PS3 driver for Pocket PC

http://davieslim.wordpress.com/2008/...ess-bluetooth/

There is a link for making it work on PC... Im sure if you cant get the source from the guy you can switch the PC USB Libary commands wtih a WM6.1 bluetooth driver

Also I wonder if it can be done wired using http://www.amazon.com/Female-Mini-Ma.../dp/B000Y6UL5E . I think this is how the PS3 bluetooth works it has to be wired before it can be wireless...

Re: To bad no PS3 driver for Pocket PC

How about using your touch pro as a bluetooth blu-ray remote for your ps3

Re: To bad no PS3 driver for Pocket PC

Anyone able to get this to work as a keyboard for their PS3? From the comments on the site, that functionality doesn't seem to be working yet...
