And now, fake sixaxis…

Bouvrie, a reader of this blog, reported issues getting the sixaxis emulator to work.

The connection isn’t successful, even with a dongle that has a chip know to work (CSR bluecore4).

The result of our investigation – see issue 74 – is that the sixaxis doesn’t give the right ps3 bdaddr (bluetooth device address). It always gives the same wrong bdaddr.

Obviously, with a wrong ps3 bdaddr, the sixaxis emulator can’t connect to the ps3.

The reason why this sixaxis doesn’t give the right baddr is simple: it’s a fake one 🙁
