ThinkGeek has a new controller for iOS fans, one that wants you to take your fingers off the screen and play classic games the way they were meant to be played when games were measured in bits: with a controller. The iCade 8-Bitty looks like an NES controller and plays like its successor, the controller for the SNES.
The folks who brought you the iCade for iPad are at CES with more iCade accessories — this time for your iPod Touch and iPhone. Do Ion's iCade Jr and Mobile attachments have enough buttons to do touchscreen gaming the justice it deserves? Maybe, maybe not.
ThinkGeek has a long history of turning their ludicrous April Fool's Day products into real things, and the latest product to get the reality treatment is their iCade iPad cabinet.
Back during April Fool's Day, ThinkGeek — as the company is wont to do — dropped the iCade iPad arcade cabinet on us, an idea so cool that the Internet cried out for it to be real. Well, ThinkGeek is still making moves for that to happen, we imagine, but this modder already beat 'em to it.
