    Hey guys I just saw this Engadget article on a new bluetooth controller for the iPhone 4: the Bluetooth Game Gripper.

    It seems like an amazing solution to iPhone gaming since it is a physical controller with buttons, adjustable for any size phone, and can be used for both iPhone AND Android!

    Here is a Youtube video to see it in action in its full glory :D

    Sorry, just excited and wanted to spread the word to make sure others knew about it. Changed to just let people know.

    Looks awful - way too top-heavy with a phone installed :rolleyes:

    I think it looks great and its only $47. Need physical buttons for better gaming? I cant think of any better option than this :)

    I think the iControlPad looks better. It is twice the price, but it has clamps to home in the iPhone (or many other phones.) PLUS it has a built in battery that is the same size as the iPhone's.

    I was of the opposite opinion of the two. I read the title of the thread here and I assumed it was going to be about the iControlPad, which I just don't like the look of (It makes me think that my GameGear has arisen from the portable gaming graveyard). I'm thinking about pledging my $47 for this, but I'm still a bit hesitant. If it was about $10 less I'd probably go for it.

    Huh?

    The only other comparable product (iControlPad) is double the price at $100 :eek:

    This is the most affordable option around for a great physical controller for iPhone gaming :)

    It's actually $75 (http://www.icontrolpad.com/order) and so what?
    I know you think is great to sell it at that price ($47), but IMO is way expensive and it will most likely fail.

    You can't charge so much for an accessory to play what are basically $1 games; $20-25 is what I believe the sweet spot for an accessory that you have to carry w/ you whenever you feel the gaming itch...
