Control iOS games with your PS3 Dual Shock controller

While we normally don’t discuss Jailbreaking news on this site this is just too cool to not discuss. This is perhaps one of the best reasons to be jailbreaking your iOS devices.

Thanks to Controllers for All you can now use your Sony PS3 Dual Shock 3 to control games on the iOS device. This pretty much means that any game or app that supports the new MFi (Made for iPhone) controllers introduced in iOS7 can now be controlled with your Dual Shock 3 controller.

Like mentioned earlier the tweak does require your iPad to be jailbroken, once your device is ready all you need to do is open Cydia and the tweak can be downloaded from the modmyi repo, the tweak costs $1.99. In my opinion this is probably the best money you will spend on Cydia for a long time to come!

The best thing is that setting up the controller for the games really couldn’t be any easier. Furthermore you don’t have to shell out your hard-earned cash on getting a new MFI controller when chances are most of you already have a Dual Shock 3 controller somewhere, and if not then these can be bought relatively cheaply online.  If you just bought the new PS4 then Ori Kadosh, the developer, promises that even more controllers, like the Dual Shock 4, will be supported in future updates.

If you are wondering which games are compatible then here is an awesome list from Reddit:
