Having problems with the stock controller? Use your DualShock 3 instead.
Instructions have recently emerged on the OUYA forums about setting up a PlayStation 3 controller with the console. Given how the biggest complaint with the console has always been the controller, especially when it comes to buttons getting stuck in the inner shell, it’s a relief to know that you can at least pair one of the better controllers available with it.
Of course, for games that use the touchpad, it won’t be possible. However, for the majority of titles, you can either plug the DualShock 3 into the OUYA directly using a mini USB cable and then hit the Home button or just reset the OUYA and then hit the Home button to use the controller wirelessly.
So far, the OUYA has been seeing a great reception. Within the same day as releasing at retailers, the console has been sold out. We’ll see how much further the Android powered marvel goes in the coming months.
