Sony’s Xperia Play has been out now for quite some time and it can still be frustrating when you come across a game and the device’s built-in gamepad isn’t supported. If you are a Xperia Play owner I am sure this is rather frustrating and let me tell you, you aren’t alone. Enter LocNet’s GameKeyboard 2.0, the answer to all your Xperia Play gaming woes. As long as your device has root access, GameKeyboard 2.0 will allow you to map any game’s on-screen controls onto the gamepad instead. Setting up the app has been said to be a bit difficult the first time around but after you get the hang of it everything is smooth sailing. There is even an XDA thread full of experienced users who can lend a hand.
GameKeyboard 2.0 sells for $2.49 in the Google Play Store and if this sounds like something you’d be interested in, jump past the break for download links and to see a quick demo video of the app in action. I have a feeling this is what you hardcore Xperia play gamers have been looking for. If you end up checking it out, be sure to come back here and give us your opinion in the comments.
