PS3 Third Party “P3” Controller

The PS3 (Playstation) Third Party “P3” Controller.

 

For those who do not play much on Ebay there was a lot of issues with purchasing controllers for the PlayStation 3 in regards to china making a ton of knock off controllers. These third party or “P3” controllers looked like a Sony PlayStation 3 controller except that if you ever picked one up and start pressing the buttons or pushing the analog stick around you know that there is something not quite right with them. This resulted in a lot of complaints to Sony about their controllers not working and eventually Sony getting pissed and locking out third party unlicensed controllers from their PS3 system.

Ouya Support – Bluetooth Discovery

Bluetooth Discovery: Ouya does not automatically find the new Bluetooth device I just purchased for it!

Ouya (more specifically the Android OS) will not automatically find any new Bluetooth device that you plugin via Bluetooth discovery. In some cases it won’t even find a brand new Ouya Controller unless you go into the pairing menu under MANAGE > CONTROLLERS . But for other devices such as Bluetooth keyboards, Bluetooth mice, etc you will need to go into MANAGE > SYSTEM > ADVANCED then select Bluetooth  in the advanced settings menu.

I have heard some people stating that they have to tip the Ouya onto its side in order to get better signal.
