    I did some testing last night, read through many tutorials and tried many tools, but none of them work.

    I installed Sixaxis Controller from Google Play (Paid App btw), app runs fine, except that it won't start the Bluetooth connection because an error states my Z30 isn't rooted. Overall I think the app just isn't compatible, as when I ran the Sixaxis Compatibility Checker, it wouldn't find my Bluetooth address either. The app does switch the bluetooth on and off, so I assume the Bluetooth support from Android apps is working just fine. I'm running 10.2.1.1925 btw. I tried the Motioninjoy application on my PC, successfully set the bluetooth address for my PS3 remote, but still no dice. My Z30 doesn't even recognize the PS3 remote.

    I'm aware of the controllers which do work, they're all third party and specifically Bluetooth. See here Gamepad support - BlackBerry Native

    My last resort will be to try via USB OTG. But has anyone successfully connected their PS3 or Xbox 360 remote to their phone? If so, how did you do it?

    I haven't tried what you are trying . but you should get a controller built for phones like the Moga. I've ordered mine and I heard good comments

    Good luck btw!

    I found out from BlackBerry that Critical Wave, QR Invaders, and Shadowgun all support Gamepads.

    Ya I know. I wish you could have seen my channel post about all of this. I suggested it as an article to DJ.

    I would be shocked if the xBox pad works without some sort of powered hub. I think it should work though, I've seen it work on Android USB OTG before.

    You have to use the Windows Wireless Dongle to get the Xbox 360 controller to work. As a matter of fact, it would be exactly like the remote in my video. The USB OTG cable, with the Windows Wireless 360 Dongle attached.

    The DS4 pad pairs with the phone, but does nothing but run down the phone and the controller's respective batteries. Or makes the Dualshock 4 into a low-power flashlight.
