How to Run PS3 Through Android


If you don’t have a compatible remote control and don’t wish to use the game controller to control your PS3 console, use your Bluetooth-equipped Android phone or tablet instead. On compatible, rooted Android devices, you can install BlueputDroid, which allows you to pair your device with a PS3. The device’s touchscreen display can be used as an emulated mouse and the on-screen keypad can be used with the PS3 Web browser or to type out chat messages while in-game.

Things You'll Need

  • Rooted, compatible Android device with Bluetooth support
  • BlueputDroid
  • Download and install the latest version of BlueputDroid onto your Android device.

  • Turn on your device’s Bluetooth if it isn’t already active.

  • Turn on your PS3 and log into your user account.

  • Select the “Settings” icon from the PS3 home screen, select “Accessories” and press the “X” button.

  • Select “Manage Bluetooth Devices” and press the “X” button.

  • Select “Register New Device” and press the “X” button. The PS3 will begin scanning for Bluetooth devices.

  • Launch BlueputDroid on your Android. Tap the “Start” button. The PS3 will find the Android device and a prompt will appear on your PS3’s display.

  • Select your Android device from the prompt list and press the “X” button. An activation code will appear.

  • Tap on the magnifying glass icon on the top-left corner of the BlueputDroid screen and tap on the PS3 in the list of Bluetooth hosts.

  • Enter the activation code from step 8 and tap “Enter.” Your PS3 and Android device are now paired and a green input screen will appear in BlueputDroid.

  • Touch and drag on the green input screen to move the mouse cursor on your PS3. To left click, tap once. To right click, tap twice. Press the “Menu” button to use the keyboard.
