This addendum documentation is to provide a manual install of how to install the Xbox 360 receiver drivers without ever having to install them onto your computer.

Ouya Support – GameStick Controllers

Ouya Review Header Image

I tried GameStick controllers on my Ouya, I was able to pair it up manually. But it doesn’t show a player assignment on the Ouya Menu. Is it broken?

GameStick ControllersWhen it comes to GameStick controllers; Ouya tries its best to determine as many third-party joysticks as possible and assign them to a player port in the android operating system. This is admirable of them to do as they could’ve easily locked everything down making it almost impossible to hook anything to your Ouya. But if you are able to link your GameStick controllers and pair it. It is connected! It’s just in a state as to what I like to refer to as “Player 0”

Ouya Support – PS3 – P3 Controllers

Ouya Review Header Image

The solution you described for bluetooth pairing does not work on PS3 and P3 controllers!

P3 controllers pictures.PS3 and the third party “P3” controllers operate a little differently when it comes to their blue-tooth enabling. The first thing you have to do with that model of controller that you hard-wire it into your Ouya (by “hard-wiring” I mean using your USB charging cable that you normally have hooked to your PS3 and hook it from your Joystick to the Ouyas USB Port). By hard-wiring it it breaks any pairing with another PS3 that could be in your house or perhaps a PS3 that is long since separated from the controller as you may have bought this online somewhere.

Note: Upon plugging the PS3 controllers into your Ouya, the Ouya will respectively disable the Bluetooth service on the console and you will lose connectivity with your Ouya Controller. This is perfectly normal!  Just make sure that you can navigate around the menus with the wired connection.

Ouya Support – Bluetooth Lag

Ouya Review - title

Bluetooth Lag: My Ouya Bluetooth joysticks are slow to respond!

Bluetooth lag is possible one of the most complained and criticized issues with the Ouya console. If you don’t have good joystick response time then your not a gaming console. Ouya could have done a slightly better job at giving the Bluetooth controllers a larger antenna on the inside as they have the room for it. I have heard some people stating that they have to tip the Ouya onto its side in order to get a better signal. If that is myth or not is to be debating, however tipping over your Ouya does not really hurt anything and if it works for you then good!

Ouya Controller going up to $49 US

Ouya - Title

Ouya controller price jump. Why?!?

Well, I decided to get the gaming console that sounds like having sex with a crazed Canadian girl from the U.P. and reserved Ouya at the local Gamestop because my friend works there and it helps out with his numbers (If you guys know anyone at a GameStop and you want to make their jobs easier , reserve an odd-ball system like an Ouya).
