Default Pairing more than one PS3 controller

Hello android enthusiast,

I've searched this forum and on the net but haven't found an answer to the following;

Is it possible to pair/link/connect more than one PS3 controller to the S4? And if so, up to how many can be paired?

I ask this because I would like to play games (ie Fifa 2013) which can take more than 4 players simultaneously.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Welcome to Android Forums, rawazik.

I'm going to move this to our Galaxy S4 board where it'll be seen by more S4 users. Feel free to post there or in any of our other forums. We're glad you're here!

Hello and welcome to the forum rawazik

The sixaxis controller app allows for 4 controllers to be connected at once. You will need to be rooted though.

Thanks for the info Shotgun84.

I am a little skeptical with rooting my phone, only because of voiding the warranty disclaimer.

Is it safe? Any known problems with the S4 after rooting? Any where I can go to get full details on how and where to get my phone rooted?

Greatly appreciated.

No problem.

I've always rooted my phones including the gs4 and haven't had any problems. There will always be risks when rooting but the risk usually comes with not following the instructions properly. If instructions are followed the risk is minimal. If you could let me know which version of the gs4 you have I'll be happy to point you towards some info which will help you decide if rooting is for you

Sorry for the delay. We have a good guide to rooting here

Rooting Galaxy S4 - Dummies Guide

The guide also has a bit of info with what you can do after rooting.

I've moved your thread over to the all things root sub forum so some other rooters will be able to chime in
