Yes, you can use a USB game controller without root and without needing any prior setup. Just plug it in and Android will recognise it. By default, the D-pad on the controller will work like a D-pad or trackball on the device itself (if you remember when Android phones used to have little trackballs built in), and it will allow you to move focus between ...

Can you not use a USB OTG (On The Go) Cable. It will have a connection (microusb) at one end to fit to your tablet and a USB connection at the other (for many peripherals). This should surely connect your X Box Controller to your tablet. They are very cheap as well. Alternatively, and maybe to be used in conjunction with see the following article from ...

Nice idea, now I think about it, too. I found a little list here (please feel free to edit/add): GTA3 Muffin Knight Pool Break Riptide GP ShadowGun Shine Runner Sonic CD Soulcraft THD If I find some time, I will add controller support to my game Orc Genocide.

Incidentally, I've never noticed any lag or unresponsiveness when using a Moga Pro with a Nexus 10 on 4.2 or 4.4.2. Perhaps your lag can be blamed on a specific app you're running?

Android supports USB controllers (using the standard USB HID profile) and Bluetooth controllers (again, if they use the standard Bluetooth HID profile). Wireless controllers that use a special wireless receiver probably won't work with Android (but they might if the wireless receiver acts as a USB HID device). To use a USB controller with your phone, you ...

According to HTML5test, Chrome for Android (as of v33) does not support controller input APIs. You'd likely have to wait for this to be implemented in some future version, or try to find a browser that does support it.

USB controllers follow a spec which means any USB controller "should" work. So there is not a "list of supported devices" as they all are supposed to work as long as they are not proprietary. Even an Xbox 360 wired controller should work (not sure about a wireless 360 controller, even when plugged in with the charge kit). Now your wireless controller is ...
