122w ago - Today Dancing Pixel Studios have released a PS3 SixAxis Controller v0.1 application for Android users that allows the SixAxis and DualShock 3 PlayStation 3 controllers to be used as Bluetooth input devices on many mobile phones and tablets alongside a video of it in action below.
To quote: Up to four controllers are supported at once, and key mappings are completely configurable, as well as the analog sticks, which are currently emulated as digital key presses.
Important - Due to the non-standard protocol that the controllers use to communicate with the host, this application requires root access.

187w ago - It's been awhile since our last update on PC drivers for PlayStation 3 DualShock 3 and SixAxis controllers, and recently MotionInJoy have updated them to version 0.5 Alpha which allows for using two or more PS3 DS3 gamepads on a single BlueTooth dongle.
To quote: PlayStation 3 controller (Dualshock 3 or SixAxis) driver for Windows. MotionInJoy drives your PlayStation 3 controller on Windows as a general game controller with motion sensor.
I try to improve something following list:
1. Two or more controllers connect to one Bluetooth Dongle at the same time (only compatible with few dongles at the moment).
2. More stable bluetooth connection (Vibration level change too fast, will disconnect the bluetooth connection with version 0.4).
3. Directx mode vibration driver.
4. Add original Xbox controller supporting.
5. Driver install program.
