UtorCase turns your Xbox 360 wired or wireless controller and your Samsung Galaxy S III I747 into a handheld game console by mounting the phone on the controller. Also, you can conveniently use second screen apps that support landscape mode with UtorCase.
In addition to UtorCase, you will also need the following items (excluded from your Shapeways purchase!):
- Samsung Galaxy S III I747 with USB OTG or USB Host enabled (Amazon)
- Wired or Wireless Xbox 360 Controller (Amazon)
- USB OTG cable (Female USB to Male Micro USB) for Android gaming (Amazon)
- For a Wireless Xbox 360 controller an Xbox 360 USB receiver (Amazon)
- Games that support the Android Gamepad API (I started here a list that you can edit as well)
Before you purchase:
- Please make sure you can connect your Samsung Galaxy S III I747 and your Xbox360 controller with a USB OTG Cable. On the Utor Case Questions and Answers page, I collected common issues that you may face while trying to connect your controller with your Samsung Galaxy S III I747
- Test the Xbox Smartglass app, and other second screen apps on your phone as some don't yet support landscape mode.
UtorCase will show on one of its side a shortened name of your phone: SGSII74
