The Xperia Play is a one-of-a-kind phone that supports a physical keyboard for mobile gaming. Many games on the Play Store have been optimized to take advantage of these inputs.
Now, I've seen some videos showing that the Xperia Z & ZL have support for the DualShock 3 (the PS3 controller) without the need of rooting (1, 2). However, I was wondering: are games compatible with the Xperia Play keyboard automatically compatible for controller play on the Xperia Z/ZL? Or both types of optimization are completely different?
