View Full Version : Where is the gamepad? a.k.a: What happened to the Dock Connector accessories?

Seeing as a big plus during the iOS3 announcement was the ability to create 'accessories' for the dock connector, I'm shocked that there are still no gamepads made for some of the iPhone and iPod touch games.

And seeing that we're now on iOS4 and Game Center is just around the corner, consider me gob-smacked!

I love titles like Minigore as much as the next guy, but a small accessory consisting of two analogue ministicks would be so much better than obscuring the screen with your fingers. And simple platformers would be ace with a D-pad and two action buttons!

Does anyone know what happened? Are they being released and I've been living under a rock all this time?

I've seen the gPod (http://www.cp-design.com.au/portfolio/iphone-game-pad/) but this is still just a proof-of-concept.
