Anyone know how I can connect either a PS3, PS4 or a wireless Xbox 360 controller to my Android TV box, I have installed a MAME emulator and its unplayable without using a game controller, my android box has Bluetooth built in if that helps... thanks

plug the ps4 in via cable, for Bluetooth I think you need the controllers Bluetooth I'd, cable should work fine with ps4 controller.
I use a Xiaomi bluetooth controller with my Galaxy S7 and it is very good quality.

​Glad I could help out. I use the same method. Bit tricky at first but easily remembered after a few uses.

​lol yeah, still not to sure how i did it, but it worked... If I use the game emulation a lot I will prob get a proper Android bluetooth pad though, looks a lot easier to use..
Hold SHARE+PS till it flashes on PS4 pad, pair with Bluetooth on android/windows
