    So what ever happened to those controller plugins I kept reading about last year? Think they will be comeback with the 3G S?
    So what ever happened to thespaz? I really enjoyed reading his posts and the mayhem that they caused. Lol:rolleyes:

    Well, it isn't until 3.0 comes out that hardware addons could be compatible with games. So it's only now finally possible.

    Whoever makes the iphone's first gaming addon, three requirements are must haves...

    1. The peripheral should look very sleek, flush with the phone and use the same black plastic found in the front of all iphones. iPhone owners care greatly about how thier device looks.

    2. The peripheral must have dual analog sticks/nubs. Imagine the PSP's analog nub, but on both sides. Portable gamers have been clamoring for this feature forever now, so it's about time they get it. I can't overstress how important it is the the iPhone's gaming pad has DUAL ANALOG NUBS (and also shoulder trigger buttons).

    3. The peripheral must have two shoulder buttons and a solid D-Pad akin to the PSP/PS3's D-Pad to enable fighting games.

    Do these things and the peripheral will be a big hit.

    Also the smaller the add on, the better. It should be as small as humanly possible. People don't like large bulky addons. And it should have a rectangular design with curved edges identical to the iphone.

    I want to see this prototype...

    If anyone can pull that off and get a lot of support for such a peripheral, it would be apple.

    I initially thought about plug ins too... but

    If they sourt out the Media Out Interface - why not have a BT proper game controller linked to the iPhone, then link the iPhone to a TV as another option?

    I was reading the comments on that site, then suddenly thought to myself "That seems so familiar!" I go back to this tab, then figure out that I read your post over that was also posted in the comments of that picture. :D Sorry for the random post, but just thought I'd share my experience...
