Apple Hard at Work Cultivating Game Controller Devices for More Serious iOS Gamers
AppleInsider snagged some slides from a WWDC presentation that outlined some possible form factor options and also named Logitech and Moga as hardware partners. There are two styles--a form-fitting controller wherein the iOS device rests inside the unit and a standalone gamepad. Both ostensibly would offer D-pads, ABXY buttons, shoulder buttons, and even thumbsticks and triggers.
iOS games can be superb--we may or may not have once gotten lost in Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 for a period of months on the iPod touch--and the ability to add separate gaming hardware will deliver a far better experience, as long as that hardware works as it’s supposed to.
