    I can't guarantee that the iCade 8-Bitty will work with the BlackBerry PlayBook, but at the end of the day it simply pretends to be a Bluetooth keyboard and that should ensure its compatibility. This plus Bluetooth keyboard support in Snes9x for Blackberry Playbook would make for some very good times...

    Well there are more than this BT controller that mimics a keyboard and "should" work with the playbook (iControlPAD for example)
    The problem is that besides Dosbox there is no Game or emulator support keyboard control, i doubt many commercial games will support this and even the emulators werent update with bt support yet (many are demanding it)..

    Has anyone try this gamepad? All the emulators for the playbook have bluetooth keyboard support except for mupen and pcsx. Retroarch also has bluetooth keyboard support.

    Apparently the iCade works with the playbook:


    It would be awesome to use it with the neogeo emulator for the playbook: http://forums.crackberry.com/showthread.php?t=752601

    Bump. Any gamepads work with Playbook? Just got one and I'm loving the games, HDMI and emulators.

    Unfortunately while some "work" with the PlayBook by pretending to be a keyboard, nobody has really supported this in their apps, and that's a real shame.

    How much of a bounty would one have to offer to add support to RetroArch?
