Building on the success of its wireless Stratus controller, SteelSeries today introduced the Stratus XL, a full-sized gaming controller for the iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. Much like its pocket-sized counterpart, the Stratus XL links to your iOS gadget wirelessly through Bluetooth rather than the Lightning port.


The Stratus XL showcases a larger, console controller-inspired layout that offers area for two analog joysticks, a pressure-sensitive directional pad (D-pad), 4 pressure-sensitive activity buttons and 4 shoulder buttons that consist of two trigger buttons.

“We have been helping more than a year now on developing the cordless controller encounter for iOS gadgets. We have been incredibly excited by the way the SteelSeries Stratus has been obtained by visitors so much and we are looking forward to presenting the Stratus XL to the iOS video gaming neighborhood– that have actually been requesting a full-sized controller alternative,” claimed Tino Soelberg, SteelSeries CTO.

“The Stratus XL was developed to satisfy their needs, delivered with the premium features and top-to-bottom quality anticipated from SteelSeries.”

The Stratus XL will assist the same iOS 7 games as the original Stratus including Dead Trigger 2, Asphalt 8: Airborne, Bastion and much more. The huge format controller will debut later this year at a price that is yet to be revealed.

Consumers can visit the Stratus XL item web page and sign up to be alerted when the serum availability date and prices are verified.
