Free mini-game collection Ape Escape included in latest update

Sony’s Tablet S has just been updated to allow for PS3 controller support.

Engadget reports users in Japan can now use connect a Dualshock 3 pad to the tablet, and even play wirelessly after the initial connection.

Users of the Tablet S will need to buy an additional USB adapter cable to be able to use the controller.

The update also comes with free download, an Ape Escape mini-game collection, which can be played using the PS3 pad.

Sony’s Tablet P has not been similarly updated however to be compatible with the PS3 controller.
