GameKlip: Because Real Gamers Use Controllers

If you’ve ever attempted gaming on a mobile device (I’m not talking Angry Birds), then you already know how frustrating touch screen controls can be. For a truly enjoyable gaming experience, one must look to his/her trusty controller. If your weapon of choice happens to be a Playstation DualShock 3 controller, then you may want to take a look at a cool new accessory called the GameKlip.

The GameKlip joins your affinity for authentic gaming with your desire to balance your phone. While other accessories, such as kickstands, do exist, the GameKlip ensures in-your-face gaming no matter which direction you decide to contort your body.

It truly is a simple answer to a problem many mobile gamers face, and at $15 a pop (wireless version), an answer that’s quite affordable. GameKlips are custom formed for optimal operation and are thus only available for a limited number of device at this time. Those devices include:

  • All Galaxy S III variants
  • Galaxy S II (Epic 4G Touch – Sprint)
  • Galaxy S II (Skyrocket – AT&T)
  • Galaxy S II (International)
  • Galaxy Nexus (HSPA+)
  • Galaxy Nexus (LTE)
  • Galaxy Note (AT&T)
  • HTC EVO 4G LTE (Sprint)
  • HTC One X (All variants)

Now just to be clear, the GameKlip does nothing more than securely attach your phone to a Playstation DualShock 3 controller. The controller is not included (nor is the phone) and in order to use it wirelessly, you’ll need to have an app such as Sixaxis Controller, by Dancing Pixel Studios, as well as a compatible, rooted device.

If you’re not rooted and have no intention of rooting (or don’t even know what root means), you can purchase the wired version, which comes with a USB OTG cable and a short mini USB cable. You’ll still need to make sure your device supports USB OTG wired connections.
