have been able to press their Sixaxis controllers into service on their handsets for quite sometime, but Android tablets have been stubbornly stuck to a USB tether
. That is, until now. Dancing Pixel Studios' Sixaxis Controller
app for Android does exactly what you expect -- allows you wirelessly control games on your Google-powered device with a PS3 gamepad. It's not the simplest setup on Earth.

. Don't miss the video after the break, and hit up the source links to download both now and make pulling off a hadouken that much easier.
