    There is an article on the Engadget website right now addressing your question. You must have the base to use the usb 2.0 ports to plug in your controller. I do not know what games will work as Engadget doesn't address this in the article.

    Wouldn't you need to DL a PS emulator? Also couldn't you connect via BT w/o the keyboard?

    A frieedn did this using the G Tab. I'd think this would work with the TF.

    you can use it for most of the emulators that have keymapping available. cordy also works. I was playing with it a bunch last night on n64oid. its not just PS emulators

    do you use a PS3 controller, or a generic USB control pad?

    the reason I ask is that I have a generic 'PS3 style' pad from GAME and the transformer doesn't seem to use it, I get a green power light on it but none of the inputs register in Cordy or any other game I have tried.
