iCade Controller Available For Seventy Bucks


Are you interested in turning your iPhone or iPod touch into a full-fledged portable gaming system? Well, you’re in luck because the iCade Mobile does just that.

iCade Mobile features a four-way directional pad, four front-facing action buttons, and four shoulder buttons. All will withstand your most furious button mashing. Your iPhone nestles in the cradle, which can be positioned in landscape or portrait mode. You’ll get a full view of all the action on screen because your hands [are] gripping the ergonomic controller pad.

Set your iDevice inside of the iCade, pair them over Bluetooth, and you have a gaming system that is actually pretty impressive. No PS Vita or 3DS needed. The iCade works with the iPhone 3G through 4S as well as the iPod touch third and fourth generations. Keep in mind the game pad only works with supported titles, but a quick search in the App Store should reveal over one hundred games that work with the iCade Mobile.

After you drop the $69.99 USD, and insert two AA batteries, you’re set for hours of gaming greatness on your iOS device. Sony and Nintendo are, no doubt, shaking in their stylish Japanese boots.
