So, who ended up picking up the iCADE?

ThinkGeek:: iCADE - iPad Arcade Cabinet

By now most of us probably know that this once April fools joke turned real product is out on the market. I'm just curious who picked one up, or is considering picking one up. If you did pick it up, what do you think?

Got one for my birthday and it is pretty slick. The game play on it is excellent with the Atari Greatest Hits app. The only drawback is the lack of other titles that are supported. However, now that the API has been released, other apps should be able to be updated to work with the iCade. I really wish MAME would be updated to work with the iCade.

Awesome - thanks for the feedback! I've been wanting to get one, but I wanted to wait and see if it gains widespread adoption in the dev community - Atari Greatest Hits is great, but I'd like to see some other apps take advantage of it!

Regarding MAME: There is a imame4all (assuming that's the app you're referring to) ticket requesting this feature to be added: http://code.google.com/p/imame4all/issues/detail?id=10

Thanks for the tip on imame4all. Looks like they just released a second beta supporting the iCade!! Just downloaded it and it works AWESOME!!! This is the best MAME experience I have ever had!!! VERY cool!

The iCade just went up in entertainment value 100 fold!

I got one of these yesterday. It's utterly fantastic. Two standout games with support are the fantastic Warblade HD and the odd looking Velocispider. Both classic shooters that play great with a real stick and buttons.

Surprisingly the Atari pack that was the first to support it fares the worst. Most of the arcade games need some form of analogue controls and with some exceptions (Asteroids for example) don't feel right.

Definitely needs more game support. There's so many games it would work well with. I was enjoying a nice game of Mos Speedrun earlier on mine
