    so all was working fine earlier, iv come home, loaded up my console again and i cannot get games to load, and its more than probably an issue with the controller connected, as if i do not connect the ps3 controller via usb the game will boot up fine, if i have the ps3 controller connected then it will just freeze the machine, untl i either pull the power cable or sometimes if i pull the controller it will work, iv tried re-installing nintendont etc, still same issues, iv googled it and come across a few people having the same issue, nobody seems to have a fix though.

    it seems to be a conflict or something going on with the controller file on my SD card, i have a controller folder in my apps section then in the root menu i have a file renamed to just controller ( the ps3 controller config file) is this correct, its winding me up a little bit as it did work fine to start with, now i have no idea whats causing the issue.

    ok so loaded nintendont up and tried updating everything through that on the console, still same, freezes as loading config done, if i unplug controller, it works again , shocky horror

    i never even once got a my ps3 controller to connect to my WiiU, i would love to for nintendont because without having a GC controller hub i could use every controller available.

    Got it to work again on both PS3 pads. Had to reset the sync with a needle. Look at the back of the pad and youll see the reset button
