Im looking for a controller so I thought I would create a thread we can use to discuss gaming controllers for Android wether it be Bluetooth or wired controllers. 

What do you recommend? Whats not hot? Whats coming up next year? What do you use?

Discuss :)

I use a PS3 wireless controller with the "Sixaxis Controller" app on rooted Nexus 7, works very nicely for PS emulation, but can be programmed (drag and drop buttons to screen location) for other games

PS3 controller remains the best option currently available because of the Sixaxis Controller app. There are a very quickly increasing number of players in the Android gamepad market, but nothing as good as PS3 controller+ Sixaxis app (requires Root though).
