Android gamers can now benefit from using a PlayStation 3 control pad on many of their favourite mobile games and apps.

Sixaxis enables the PS3 Dualshock to take control

Be warned, though, compatibility is limited and pairing the hardware can be a tricky task. Yet all 17 buttons on the controller can be mapped to any key press, and up to four pads are supported.

To ensure your handset is compatible, grab the free Sixaxis Compatibility Checker app first.
