Historically, Mobile Globe Congress isn’t the spot where iOS players getting the lowdown on just what they’re going to be itching to acquire quickly. Filled with more Android phones than any sort of sane person would ever wish to check out and also all examples far too technical for us, iOS video gaming doesn’t often be on the schedule. Many thanks to Mad Katz though, 2014 is a bit different.


With iOS 7′′ s boosted assistance for gaming operators it appears that everyone and his dog is launching something that they claim will make video gaming on an iOS gadget a satisfaction. Freing us of touch-based controls in games that simply don’t warrant them, operators have the possibility to take video gaming on iOS to the next level, particularly with iPads and iPhones consistently receiving big rate and graphical bumps with every brand-new release.

Yet regrettably nobody has managed to make a great one yet. Luckily, Mad Katz has signed up with in during this year’s Mobile World Congress, and we assume they may just have actually hit the mark. Engadget got a hands-on with the Mad Katz C.T.R.L.i Bluetooth controller and we need to share, it looks great definitely.

Basically a repurposed Mad Katz Xbox 360 operator, the C.T.R.L.i provides a detachable owner that can house an iPhone in just the best area above the controller, making video gaming on smaller devices a wind. The fact that this could be gotten rid of though means that gaming on an iPad is also possible, and with Bluetooth connectivity as opposed to a Lightning cable, everything could keep asking for during the inescapable marathon GTA video gaming sessions that will certainly comply with.


Being an Xbox 360 pad in mind, the C.T.R.L.i will really feel instantly knowledgeable and more importantly, will not feel cramped. Double analog sticks have us particularly delighted too, however we’ll certainly have to book complete judgment till the thing’s readily available outdoors MWC 2014.

Currently delivering iOS operators do not have the tendency to be cheap either, however at $ 80 the C.T.R.L.i isn’t really also harshly valued, specifically as compared to the competition. Floor covering Katz says the accessory will be offered in early spring season, and we actually cannot stand by!

If you want something a bit subtle, and something that is offered immediately, after that look at the Logitech PowerShell or the MOGA Ace Energy 2. Both are fantastic devices and feel truly wonderful.
