Looks like somebody finally did it… A Console style controller for iOS devices! This thing looks very promising except that there are not many titles compatible with it thus far. I’m sure once the wave catches on, all iOS Game developers will grab their boards and “hang 10”. 60Beat’s GamePad is modeled to feel like the real thing, and also has very similar controls. This device is completely awesome if your sick and tired of touch screen joysticks and cluttered screen real estate from your thumbs.
Stay tuned for an official review and demo of GamePad right here on macmixing.com in the coming weeks. We will show you what this device is all about. Personally I think the price range is just right for a device of this caliber and capability. I just hope more developers catch on soon so we can rock our iDevices with awesome controllers!!! GamePad currently retails for $49.99. Check it out in action in the video below!
The GamePad transforms iOS devices into a true game console. Experience the tactile GamePad sensation with each button press. The GamePad features Dual Analog joysticks and easily connects through the headphone jack of your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. It has an ergonomic design for superior comfort and control. Best of all, no batteries or charging equipment needed! Go to Video section to see it in action.
