    So I was thinking.... Cause I got those fat thumbs, and playing mu snesoid can be tricky....

    I have a SNES controller. I also have a SNES controller---> Male USB. Now if I can find a R USB to M micro USB, can I plug that in on my D2 and use that?

    I realize this would effectivly make my controller 3x the size of my gaming platform..... But would it work?

    Thanks

    Even better question. I have a USB Xbox 360 controller, if I can find a USB to microUSB adapter, can I use THAT on my Droid X?

    I think you may be onto something here and should suggest it to an app suggestion forum!

    The USB on the phone is not a host controller.

    That's not to say someone couldn't figure out how to make it work, but the drivers for a host controller are not built in, and thus the DX cannot host hardware through the USB natively. The DX can only be a client to the hardware plugged into USB.
