Gaming on smartphones is getting pretty awesome, especially with the incredibly rich graphics coming down the pipe nowadays. And once you get used to it, using the screen as a controller is actually not that bad, although there’s no question that some games cry out for a decent games controller of some sort.
Which is where the Gamehook GH101 comes into play. This small bracket attaches to your Dualshock 3 controller, and lets you add the smartphone on top to give you fantabular button pressing action instantly. The two connect via a microUSB cable, and as long as your game is compatible, you’re good to go.
The kit supports analog action as well as digital, and the list of compatible games is pretty good, with quite a lot of the racing game genre represented, as well as RPGs and shoot ’em ups. But don’t expect every game to play properly, so it’s best to check whether your faves are on the list before stumping up the $24.00 the bracket costs. Neat idea.
