Controllers for the Go

Which Controller shall you use?

Just pick up all the controllers laying around your house or spare some money and buy the Xbox One controller! You’ll be able to use it with your Oculus Santa Cruz in the future! πŸ˜„

Then open up your Oculus app on your Android or iPhone and synch up a new bluetooth controller.

Which Xbox One controller can I use with the Go?

Can I use a Dualshock 3 from the PS3?

Nope, you can’t we are sorry, Dualshock 3 has Bluetooth type 2.0, the Go supports type 3.0 class 2.

You can ONLY use Bluetooth 3.0 class 2 gamepads with your Oculus Go!

As you can see from this screenshot even using Dualshock 3 with USB is not supported on the Go.

Complete Gamepads support
