GameSir G3s Gamepad – Review and Giveaway

GameSir G3s Gamepad – Review and Giveaway

Looking for a cross-platform Bluetooth gamepad that is easy-to-use, has multiple connection methods, and even a Turbo function? If so, the GameSir G3s gamepad just may be what you’re looking for. This plug-and-play Bluetooth gamepad has a built-in 600mAh polymer lithium battery that lasts for up to eighteen hours along with a 32-bit MCU chip. Best of all, it doesn’t require any drivers or software installation – it’s automatically detected by most systems.


like with most gamepads, though, you may have to do a bit of remapping depending on the system and/or app you’re using it with. For example, I use Dolphin Emulator on Xubuntu to play GameCube games, and I found that some of the buttons are off due to the setup of the original GameCube controller vs this one. Luckily, I was easily able to do some remapping in Dolphin’s GCPad Configuration settings.

On the other hand, when using Mupen64Plus to play Nintendo 64 games, it’s a lot more work. The gamepadoriginally wasn’t working at all, and I had to do extensive research and tweaking within the Config Editor to get it working.

If you plan on using this just for mobile gameplay (Android 4.0+, iOS 5.0+), you shouldn’t have nearly as much trouble since this is a cinch to pair and is recognized by most emulators and compatible games. It is also said to be fully compatible with Windows and PlayStation 3 consoles (yes, 3 not 4).
