    A newbie question


    I am no gamer. The only video game console I have is Play Station 2. Enough said.

    I have an Irulu 9" 16GB Android 4.4 tablet and a Surface RT tablet.
    Irulu has a micro USB port while Surface RT has a 2.0 USB port.
    I am wondering if there is a game control ( like the one in PS2) that can be connected to the tablet so I can play the games more efficiently, or less stupidly in my case.
    I think there is such an animal. I need product recommendation for less than $40 US.
    Thank you.

    Only yesterday, Jan 23rd, did I receive the Gamepad !

    I am unable to use it on games.
    It's Bluetooth connected and I can go as far as using the gamepad to select the games from my Android 4.4 tablet . But, it does nothing to play the game.
    I am relatively familiar with the game controller. I have PlayStation 2 and I used the wireless controller.

    I kind of think the gamepad is only good for specific type of games.
    If so, how to find those games from Google Play store ?

    There is an Android App that lists gamepad ready games on Android / Its called GamePad Games by Offworld Software. Give that a try.

    Thanks a lot.
    I'll try them out later.

    Update.........................
    My Bluetooth keeps turning off by itself when I tried to play with Gamepad Controller. The game started and Bluetooth was turned off. So, it's a no go for me.
    I have a cheap Irulu tablet.
