Just yesterday we were talking about increased compatibility and functionality between different Sony devices and now we can soon add another to the list. It appears that Sony Mobile will shortly introduce native support for the DUALSHOCK 3 PlayStation 3 controller. This means full wireless support to play Android/PlayStation Mobile games without the need for a rooted device and additional software.
This software functionality was spied in the upcoming Sony Xperia SP (C530X) settings menu (Settings > Xperia). From here you will find a ‘DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller’ menu option. You then need to connect the controller to your phone via an USB-OTG cable. Once this is done, you can remove the cable and the phone and controller will now be connected via Bluetooth.
