    I could do that with my ancient old nokia n95, I don't see why it wouldn't be possible on the PB.

    No. The final version of Tablet OS 2.1 still didn't have what it needs to in order to know how to talk to a wiimote and unless someone finds a way to root it, it never will.

    It can talk to any controller that emulates a keyboard, such as the Steel series Free, older iCade devices, etc. They send two button presses (one for pressed, the other for released) instead of just acting like a key being held down. A lot of these were sold as gamepads for iOS devices.

    Only one game in BBW supports these gamepads, Animal Battle. It's a shame nobody else cared to even try adding support given how long this style controller was available.

    I wrote up a thread ages ago on what button = what keys are pressed to tell an app when a button is pressed/released. Open source apps could (should) be updated to use this style gamepad.

    It would be really nice to see a PlayBook update to Retroarch that adds this support if the author plans to update the PlayBook version at all anymore. That's really the most important app for gaming that would benefit from having gamepad support.
