Tablet Wireless Bluetooth Controller
My Samsung Galaxy 7" original Tab (Verizon version) with a SNES and N64 game emulators, Bluez IME app and this Bluetooth Gamestop controller has just turned my tablet into a gaming monster! I can play any game or emulator with this controller. As long as it supports it, which for all the games I want to use it with it does. So, yes, $40 for a controller is a little pricey. However, if you think of the tradeoff, I now have a multi platform game console. Priceless! You will need to program the buttons, but once you do it is game on! This is the future of gaming, especially portably/mobile! This is too cool! Yes, it does feel a tad bit less "durable" than console game controllers. I highly recommend this controller if you like to play games on your tablet and the virtual onscreen controllers just don't cut it. This not only works with emulators, but games off the market as well. As long as the game has the ability to accept the controller in the settings somewhere then you are gold! :D
Works as Advertised for Android "Tablets"
I got my wireless game pad delivered last night. My game pad paired (synced) to the blutooth on my Asus Transformer Android Tablet in seconds. On some game you must map or assign each individual button and analog stick control (Left and Right) to a function. This assigning is mandorty for the Riptide game but not for the ShadowGun game (just set it to free motion and you are ready to play). The design is decent but the plastic feels a little cheap compared to the Xbox 360 and PS3 controllers. It is nice because you Dont Need the keyboard dock for the Asus Transformer to use the wireless game controller like you do with the Logitech on with the USB dongle. Can't wait to play the Tegra 3 games on my Asus Transformer Prime when it gets delivered in one to two weeks.
Works with Evo 3D
I synced it easily to my Evo 3D. Works with an SNES emulator, but haven't tried anything else, As others mention, unit is light and doesn't feel very solid. It works as advertised, only complaint is that a few key presses have had lag in response.
wireless controller rechargeable
I just followed the instruction and it worked the controller is super light weighted and once u do all the steps all you have to do is press power and it is conceted it using the Acer a500
Does what it's meant for.
The controller itself is light but it doesn't feel cheap either, it's responsive for the most-part and I did notice a very small delay in button responsiveness when using bluetooth but nothing too adverse to effect gameplay. It's great for the games it says it can use on the box and it's even compatable with other games. I like that it can work with the onlive gaming service so I don't have to buy an expensive onlive controller.
GameStop was brave in entering this space. Several companies have tried and failed to create a generic bluetooth wireless gaming controller. The controller pairs and works with every device I tried (phones, tablets, PC). It acts as a HID keyboard device. It pairs quickly and stays connected reliably. The key codes used for the buttons are a little odd so software will need to know them or allow custom configuration for them to work. Overall response time is good ; a lot of old classics play well with the controller. At times it seems to have minor missteps with the d-pad, but it's hard to tell if that's a communication issue or something else. I'm happy with my purchase and think that GameStop did a great job in designing a useful gaming device that works on any computer you own.
Works well with my tf300
I read one of the other reviews saying that it wouldn't pair with this tablet, but it works great on my Asus 300. My only complaint is that more developers don't allow controllers in their games.
Feels Cheap, it Works
The controller works as advertised, but it feels cheap and the trigger buttons are not analog as far as I can tell.
For $40, this controller should be better built. It looks and feels cheap. It works as advertised, though. Setup was easy with my Transformer Prime. Definitely a good alternative if you don't want to root your tablet and void your warranty. Note that it does NOT currently work with GTA III, contrary to what Rockstar will tell you. Gamestop did not list it in the games that the controller works with, so I did not factor it in to my review.
I'm sure this controller would work fine, however, the controller only turns on when plugged in to a wall socket, and the Sync button doesn't function or even light up when pressed. Maybe I got a dud, but either way this is ridiculous.
