It looks similar to ThinkGeek as good as Ion Audio were land out upon us when we visited a companies’ counter during CES progressing this year. (See refurbish below) In further to the 3 latest inclination already announced for a iCade lineup by Ion (that allows we to operate assorted controls for iOS games opposite Bluetooth), there’s right away an additional a single from ThinkGeek only, not often called a 8-bitty. The 8-bitty is an NES-style (though 4 buttons, instead of usually two) retard controller that’s utterly wireless: Just span it up with your iOS device as good as have during it.
It’s frequency ergonomical, though that’s not unequivocally a indicate with this, obviously. There have been additionally dual buttons during a tip to operate as triggers, so this is unequivocally an aged propagandize controller written for new-school use. And only similar to all of Ion as good as ThinkGeek’s alternative iCade stuff, this will be concordant with any games written to operate it — all it does is acts as a Bluetooth keyboard, so any games written to operate sure keys to do sure things will be means to operate this.
Seems similar to a great idea, as good as since iCade’s success in a past, this a single will substantially sell only as well. It’s ostensible to be accessible “later upon this year,” as good as ThinkGeek has listed a 8-bitty during $24.99, so we’ll keep a demeanour out as good as let we know when we can squeeze one.
Update: ThinkGeek’s reps email to contend which whilst a alternative iCade inclination have been being made in and with Ion Audio, a 8-bitty is not. It’s still regulating a iCade name, though this product is all ThinkGeek. Good to know.
