    I got the PS3 controller working on the Surface Pro using motionjoy when it's connected to USB, but I'm having problems getting the bluetooth to work. Motionjoy doesn't see the bluetooth controller so there's no way to pair it. Has anyone been able to get it to work? I would use an Xbox 360 controller but I'm trying to use a wireless controller. Thanks.

    I don't think there is a way to use either controller via bluetooth alone. You have to use the cable or at least the usb dongle for wireless.

    Me too, I don't see the SPs Bluetooth as a device, seems you need an external BT dongle which is a little odd given the SP has Bluetooth!!! Anyone else got it working?

    Cheers

    Motionjoy has always been finiky with what bluetooth dongles it works with. Generally you need theirs or something that speaks nearly the same language. They configured the built in drivers for one device for ease. I'm sure MS uses something entirely different.
