Mobile phone accessories seem to be gearing more toward the gamer crowd lately, and a new item for iPods, iPhones and iPads will allow users to connect a video game controller to their mobile device.
The new 60Beat is the latest attempt to create a video game controller for Apple devices, as Touch Arcade said Apple will most likely never release one itself.
"It features of total of 10 buttons, two joysticks, a d-pad, and ships with an audio splitter and a luxuriously long four foot cable," according to TouchArcade. "Looks cool, right? The biggest hurdle for the GamePad – other than being a good and meaningful product, of course – will be grabbing the attention of the iOS development community. It apparently requires some game-side tweaks to work properly, so 60beat and its friends will have to collaborate."
Currently, the game controller currently only works with Bugdom 2 and Aftermath, but there are hopes that more games will start coming out soon. The controller does not need batteries to operate and weighs about 5.5 ounces, easy enough for any gamer or Apple fan to use.
