Did you know that iOS 7 comes with native support for gaming controllers? Yep, instead of niche products like the iCade that only support a few games, Apple has opened the floodgates for full-on mass support for controllers on iOS devices.

Although a few other third party hardware companies have shown off their projects, Logitech, one of the biggest manufacturers on the planet is teasing their own -- providing a sign-up page for more info on their Facebook. While this seems like it's not that big of a deal, mass support from a huge company could really drive developers for more tactile control options on iOS. Heck, I'm actually playing a game right now that has full gamepad support, mere days after the official release of iOS 7.

With Apple TV enhancements and crazy mods like bluetooth work-arounds for Dualshock and Wii-mote support, this could mean great things for people who hate touch controls but want to play iOS exclusives.

Switching face plates on the New 3DS looks easy enough

Feels like the New 3DS was only just announced the other week, but it's already available in Japan. Nintendo has been busy uploading videos like this one which details how to swap out the system's face plates. Interestingly, the stylus can be used to pry them open. Neat design! There are also a ton of videos showing the various 3DS themes.more

Look at this super skinny gaming rig from PiixL, two inches thick

I've hid my gaming/media PC rig behind or under my television for years. It's much easier these days with all of the small form factor boxes available.  But I don't care how lovely they make these things; I'm still hidin...more
