right, well I bought the sixaxis app on day 1 of my tablet purchase, did not realize it required rooting the tablet. I preordered gamestop's controller, (sigh) due to be released Sept. 26. what sold me was: it's made by NYKO (experienced in controller creation), it is native to the "new controller standard" for android/tablet games (sorry can't remember the correct synax at the moment). and it's marketed by gamestop, who according to gaming sites is looking to expand their stores' marketing to tablet/download games.

eww, just looked at it again, looks chunky. oh well, guess I'll buy a prettier one down the road.....
yeah, so I'm not gonna bother with the usbJOY app, maybe if someone does they can post here. I hopefully will do a review after I get the thing.
