Sony Tablet Gets Dual Shock Support

Posted on December 20, 2011 AT 06:23am

THE BUZZ: Sony has released a new update for its Tablet S device, adding support for a dual shock controller.

The update allows users to connect a PlayStation 3 controller via USB to the device and then use it to play classic PlayStation titles. The update is available now in Japan and comes with a free copy of an Ape Escape mini-game collection. There is no word on a U.S. release.

EGM’s TAKE: While the addition is a nice idea, it removes the ease of use from the tablet. You’re not going to take your PS3 controller with you on the bus are you?

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
