• iPhone Paired with PS3 Controller

  • OK, this is cool right?  But, what about the fact that PS4 is now here. This should be the case for those as well!

    Apple’s inclusion of gamepad support with iOS 7 has unleashed a wave of new controllers from the likes of Moga and Logitech, but they’ve not proved must-have accessories so far thanks to the hefty pricetags attached. Step forth if you’ve got a PlayStation 3 controller handy, as a new tweak lets you use your trusty gamepad with your iPhone or iPad, and with games that support Apple’s new controller standard too!

    The recent iOS 7 jailbreak has opened the door forth a whole host of new tweaks, and one of the most handy looks to be Controllers for All, a $1.99 (£1.20) app that lets you pair up your PlayStation 3 pad with your iPhone or iPad and then enables you to use it with any game that supports Apple’s MFi controller. You do have to pair up your PS3 controller through your computer, but that only needs to be done once, and when you’re up and running, you can start gaming to your heart’s content.

    How to turn your Apple TV into a games console!

    The tweak lets your connected PS3 pad masquerade as a registered Apple accessory, and tricks your phone or tablet into thinking it’s a proper iOS 7 gamepad, so you can kick back with games like Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and play them just like you did on the PlayStation 2. Best of all, AirPlay lets you beam over your phone or tablet’s screen to your TV via an Apple TV puck, making your iOS gadget a tiny little games console. Take a look at the tweak in action in the video below.

    Jailbreaking your iPhone or iPad has been made fairly easy recently, but it still may not be for the faint of heart – although if you’re feeling adventurous and want to use your PS3 pad with your iOS gizmo, Lifehacker has a handy guide on how to unshackle your iPhone or iPad to unlock a whole lot more potential.
