New gamepad for iPhone/iPad is decidedly Gameloft centric

New gamepad for iPhone/iPad is decidedly Gameloft centric photo



Available this week from Apple, Amazon, Target, and Best Buy is a new wireless controller for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch that was created by Duo Games and Gameloft. Upon docking your device, you can connect the Duo Gamer via Bluetooth to play titles with six buttons and dual analog sticks or a d-pad.

Given the collaboration, it only makes sense that this would come out of the gate with support for apps like Asphalt 7: Heat, Order & Chaos Online, and N.O.V.A. 3, but according to the press release, "Duo Gamer works exclusively with a number of popular Gameloft titles." Kills the mood a bit, huh?

Perhaps I'm severely underestimating the demand for Gameloft's library on iOS to be playable with a physical gamepad, but the more I think about the device, the less I "get" it. Especially given its $79.99 price tag. Then again, they are getting placement in exactly the kind of stores I'd expect this type of product to perform well at.

Xbox One controller adapts, goes wireless on PC this year

At GDC 2015, Microsoft announced plans to release a wireless adapter for Xbox One controllers on Windows later this year. Great news, but we need dates, Phil Spencer. Specific dates! I had terrible luck with my wireless adapter for the Xbox 360 gamepad -- damn thing was spotty at best, non-functional at worst -- so here's hoping these new ones are an improvement.more

Oh hey, this looks like the final Steam Controller

Weird as it might still look, you have to admit that Valve's Steam Controller has come far. Remember this photo? Or this more recent one? It's like leafing through your worst yearbooks. Given that I play PC-centric games with...more
