    Hello there.

    I have a PS3 controller that came with our PSTV, and I want to use it with my computer so I can play Steam games on the TV and sit on the couch. The problem being, my laptop doesn't have Bluetooth (for some reason) and the longest cord that works is ~3 in.
    I'm not spending any more money 'til I can buy an NES Classic, and USB dongles, while cheap, ain't free. So, as you saw in the title (hopefully),

    Can you wirelessly connect a PS3 controller without Bluetooth?

    Honestly, just get USB cables. It will save you a lot of input lag and wasted time. Some emulators do have Wii controller support but that's as far as I've seen it go.

    You could just use a different game pad or controller.

    An Xbox 360 wired controller doesn't reach to the best seat.

    I guess you'll just have to sit closer to the TV then.
