Dual Shock support added to Sony Tablet S

Engadget reports the latest Japanese firmware update for Sony’s Tablet S added support for the PlayStation 3’s Dual Shock controllers. The controller apparently works wirelessly after initial, wired ste up and works with PlayStation Suite certified titles. Japanese gamers have been provided with a free game to celebrate the addition. The Tablet P has not been so fortunate. If your streaming-games-service-sense are tingling, you’re not alone. That’s the smell of the future, that is.
