How are you all digging iOS 7?
Personally, I’m underwhelmed. The whole thing looks great, aside from a few questionable design choices like the blandness of GameCenter and use of translucency where transparency was fine, and Control Center is a great addition, but it hardly makes a difference to me. Then again, the feature I wanted most is still kind of waiting in the wings.
That’s about to change, though. Introducing GameCase, the first “Made for iOS” controller.
Yes, that’s an iPad Mini in the picture above. No, we don’t have any details on it or any of the other available models. No pricing. No release date. Nothing, nada, zero, zip, zilch.
We do have this overproduced video, though. So, yeah, there’s that.
All I really know is that it kinda makes that iPad mini look like Johnny Five from Short Circuit.
iPhone 5 is alive!
I’m skeptical, but I’ve a laundry list of games that would be made better by controllers. The GameCase, featuring dual analog sticks, looks perfect for Beat Hazard Ultra, Pocket RPG, and Geometry Wars: Touch or the likely hundreds of other dual-stick shooters on the system.
If that doesn’t fit your bill, take a gander at this teaser image from the Logitech Gaming Facebook Page.
Of course, if they’re teasing that case that Kotaku scooped back in June, then I might just stick with the big guns up above.
This could open up a whole new can of worms for mobile gaming. Hey, Chair, how’s about you bring Shadow Complex on over. Team Meat, care to talk about Super Meat Boy on iOS, again?
We’ve reached out to both controller makers. I’m dying to test these things out and hope they will oblige. You know, for you guys. Not me.
First one to send a controller to me here in South Korea wins! Scruples, scruples, where are my scruples?Tweet
