How to Use an Xbox 360 Controller with Nexus 7
Nexus 7's touch screen controls is not good enough for playing ShadowGun THD, Max Payne and Dirt 3 games. The best way is to use a controller.
I have a wired Xbox 360 controller. To use it on my Nexus 7, I get a small T & S Electronics Micro USB Host Cable (OTG Cable) adapter from Amazon. It's about $5 and supports Wired game controllers, USB mouse and keyboard connectivity.
I plug the Xbox 360 controller in adapter and configure the controls with the game. Works like a charm without any issue. I also can used it to connect to an external 750GB HDD.
