Yet people pay a lot more than that to play a few iOS games.
It's funny how many people have been attacked, and vilified on here by saying the same thing about touch screen phones. Apple didn't take into consideration for gaming controls when it designed the iPhone/iPod Touch. Devs adjusted their game play. There are now more games than have ever existed for all gaming consoles combined.This was Apple's chance to redesign the gaming controller. Instead they went with a 20 yr old design, and left the building of it to 3rd...
See the thing is would you be saying that if MS had made the Xbox controller after Apple had issued it's guidelines? The headline on AI read 'MS bases Xbox controller on Apple's design', and most here would pick out the similarities not the differences. That's called hypocrisy in my book. Surely the mighty Apple can reimagine the lowly gaming controller instead of following the lead of Sony and MS.
I'm well aware of that, and I'm not surprised that Amazon took that route. I am however surprised at Apple's guidelines. Surely there's another way to design a controller. I would expect more from Apple than just a slightly altered 'me too' design.
Using that logic Samsung phones are 'completely' different. So then what's the problem? If small variations make a product completely different than it should be all the time not some of the time.
The only difference is the left side joystick/D pad configuration and the L2/R2 buttons aren't triggers.Take into account that the drawing is just a guideline. The actual controllers being made look a lot like the Xbox controller.http://forums.appleinsider.com/t/161477/signal-announces-rp-one-full-size-bluetooth-game-controller-for-apples-ios-deviceshttp://forums.appleinsider.com/t/161638/review-steelseries-stratus-portable-wireless-gaming-controller-for-iphone-ipad
No I'm not kidding. Did you miss this? Have you not seen a plethora of controllers released in the last several months, and reviewed right here on AI?http://toucharcade.com/2013/06/10/wwdc-2013-more-details-emerge-on-official-ios-game-controllers/
You do realize that Apple's guidelines for a controller are very Xbox-esque
They can be sued since they make money indirectly. There's actually a term for it but I don't remember it.
But even with another week it will still be fast. I think there was much more evidence the last time.
