iOS devices certainly aren’t lacking for gaming accessories, but we’re always willing to welcome a new contender. 60beat believes it’s got the ideal solution in the shape of this familiar-looking controller. It connects to an iPhone, iPad or iPod through the headphone jack and offers up some familiar gaming options in the shape of dual-analog sticks and digital inputs. Unfortunately, the controller’s been saddled with a $50 price tag and is only fully enabled with two games. More games are promised for next year, and here’s hoping they’ll include some big hitters. Anyone rolling in cash money can check out 60beat’s hard sell — and some unusual spa relaxation music — in its promo vid right after the break.
