Reports have begun to crop up of users being able to use PS4 and Xbox One controllers with the NVIDIA SHIELD TV 2017 and 2015, although it is unclear at the moment whether this is a feature exclusive to the SHIELD TV's recent Android Nougat update, or if it's an Android Nougat feature across the board.
It's pretty much common knowledge by now that Apple integrated native game controller support with the launch of iOS 7 last year. The officially introduced APIs in the iOS 7 SDK make it relatively easy for game developers to allow their offerings to be interacted with via a hardware controller that conforms to Apple's blueprints. However, the initial wave of controllers have proven to be quite expensive, prohibitively so in some cases, meaning that not a lot of users are taking the plunge and parting with upwards of $99 to play a $0.99 game. Thankfully the jailbreak community has come to the rescue once again with the release of Controllers for All, a tweak that allows PlayStation 3 DualShock 3 controllers to be used in conjunction with these MFi Game Controller iOS 7 games.
