    I just got my kindle fire, but what I really want to use a tablet for, is Nintendo 64 games, or play station games. The kindle fire is the perfect size, and everything, but I can't seem to find a solid answer anywhere on the internet of whether or not it can use a Bluetooth controller like a PS3 controller. It doesn't have to be a PS3 controller, but anything that lets me play without using the touch screen! Does anyone know the answer!?!? Any information would be greatly appreciated. -Thanks

    Although there is a Bluetooth radio in the fire, it cannot currently be utilized. There are people working to try and make Bluetooth functional, but no luck yet. So for now, I'm afraid your answer is no - there is no controller that can be used. Not yet.

    Onlive has released a wireless controller, that is supposed to work with Android, iOS, Mac and Windows. Mine should arrive this week. I am not sure if it works only with their app, but I should know this week. If it works with other apps, I will let you know.

    According to the Onlive Fans forums, the controller may only work with rooted Kindle Fires. It looks like it only works with Honeycomb or higher systems, or CM7. I hope I didn't get anyones hopes up.
