I've seen these for $50-$60 listed on Amazon for a while (Moga Pro) and loved the idea but hated the price.

Geekbuying has them on sale now for $23.99 with plenty of time to arrive by Christmas.

Deal link: G910 Wireless BT Gamepad Game Controller - $23.99 Shipped FREE [geekbuying.com]

For anyone not familiar with Geekbuying: Reselleratings.com rating link [resellerratings.com]

I picked a G910 up when I found it listed at $34 on Amazon and have had mine for about 6 days so far. The reason G910 is preferred is because it is identical internally to the Moga Pro and plays all of their games + more.
It has an expandable cradle to fit your phone (fits my Samsung GS3 and my wife's iPhone 4 great) but I've been using it with my CX-919 PC Stick on the big screen mostly.
For anyone curious, it also works perfectly on a Galaxy Tab 10" tablet too.
Basically, anything with Bluetooth capability and Android 3.2 or higher will work.

Eventually I'll post a video if anyone has questions that I can help out with or want to know about specific games. I've been too lazy busy playing games to bother. Big Grin

These will be under the tree this year for the 12yr old and 14yr old that we have in the family.
They're impossible to shop for but we know they love video games so, at less then $25 shipped and proven to be a good buy, this is a no-brainer.

There's lots of informative reviews out there and links to videos, firmware, gamecenter apps, etc that I'll add to the wiki below.

Enjoy!

NOTE: For iOS, this is only compatible with iCade compatible games. This is NOT to be confused with the new iOS 7 Apple-approved "official" controllers such as the Logitech and Moga ones announced this week.

DPAD (You know if you care): this one copies the 360 DPAD. The MOGA Pro in contrast is very close to Nintendo DPAD in feel and design.

Good info and repped +4 for updating the wiki and pointing that info out for people.
Since Apple is satan and their products the work of the devil, I'm far less knowledgeable about them than I should be.

My wife disagrees, but, down deep she knows I'm right.

Just a word of caution. I purchased this device 2 months ago. Took me 3 weeks to receive the item. It was already defective on arrival (wasn't charging at all). After a lot of email exchanges, they agreed on a replacement, but I had to ship the item back to China. It's been almost a month now and they keep telling me they haven't received the package yet. They told me that they'll only honor up to $8.00 on shipping (I spent $15.00 for sending). I don't know yet when I can receive the replacement (maybe another month or two).

If you still want to go ahead and purchase it, either hope that it'll work or you'll just waste $24.

Turn on Bluetooth for your device, press the start button on the controller, pair the two, open a game, play using the controller.

You can add lots of stuff in the middle of that process, depending on how much of a gamer you are.
There are apps like GameCenter which is sort of like a media program that you use to launch games, configure extra buttons, and download lots of new content.
There are also things like OpenPad Union which does some of the auto-configure stuff for you.

But the basic answer is, turn them on, pair them, and play.

1. Geekbuying has USA returns on just about all their sale items. Why you sent it to China, I have no idea.....Roll Eyes (Sarcastic) (Although, I do not actually see the option on this sale page)
2. What is your definition of, "a lot of email exchanges"? A typical return of any sort requires emails back and forth so that sounds like you're just piling on.
3. It took 3 weeks to arrive and it's basically been three weeks since you returned it, but you sound like it's been a year.
4. Next time you spend $15 to ship something, spring for tracking so you don't have to wonder where it's at.
5. Geekbuying has a 90+ rating on Reseller Ratings and on Amazon. Things happen, but at least your thing happened with a seller that will work to help you resolve the issue.
6. If you want a product faster, use Geekbuying on Amazon. It's currently on sale there too for around $30 but you have it in a few days. You can return directly to Amazon and they cover shipping.

No need to paint such a grim picture when all that happened is you got a dud and they're replacing it.

help please. will this work for this tablet

RCA RCT6077W2 with WiFi 7" Touchscreen Tablet PC Featuring Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) Operating System:
No.
Sorry, TanjaZ.
Your device does not appear to have Bluetooth, so it will not be compatible.
If you have a current Smartphone (anything in the last 18-24 months) it probably has Bluetooth and would work fine.

Just pop the phone into the cradle as the monitor and use the controller to play the game.

p.s. The tablet you linked is giving you about 15% of the experience you should be getting when using an up-to-date Android device. Black Friday would be a great time to replace it for something exponentially faster, lighter, better.

No Bluetooth function is listed in the specs for the 2nd post either, so it also looks like it would be a no.

Let me measure the max size on the cradle. be right back, give me a minute.
Also, since yours has bluetooth, it will definitely work, whether it fits in the cradle or not.
I propped my Samsung Galaxy Tab 10" on a couch pillow and laid at the other end and played, fyi.

*Edit - don't think it will work, not sure about your specs, but the max the cradle stretches is just over 3.5" so it would need to be smaller than that on the sides of the Note 7.

As if to pour salt on the wound, his name was David. Confused
Also, in keeping with the norm, he was too drunk to be injured.

Doesn't it always seem like the drunk person in these types of accidents walk away without a scratch?

And, finally, thankfully, luckily, mercifully, my 3yr old daughter was in the car and was ok.
She had a 5 point harness seat and only had bruises where the belt marks were.
I suspect she may have been drunk since she also avoided injury, but didn't want to run that theory by my wife. shake head
My enemy appears to have been soberness and a steering wheel.
Glad you and the family made it through that brother!

Scary stuff...
