    Any sort of clip on accessory that you can do that make it feel like a PSP or so? Way too early, but I'm sure there's something for previous iPhones and those same companies would do something for the 6/6+.

    Really feel like this screen is large enough to play proper games on.

    I agree.

    Plus if you have an Apple TV you can AirPlay the game on your big screen while at home :cool:

    Before this controller went on sale in the last week there weren't ANY good ones that both 1) had bluetooth and 2) had a clip to hold your iphone in place while you play.

    Another good one coming out soon is the MadCatz CTRLi controller that gets a lot of praise as well. Both that and the Moga Rebel are the top 2 controllers IMO.

    Admittedly I've never tried that, but wouldn't it be a huge pain in the ass?

    If you're looking at the tv then how are you supposed to know what you're pressing on the phone?

    Yeah, it would be a real shame if people knew the meaning of the words they use. I don't care what little computer games you play on your toys. The real world is so much cooler than sitting on the couch. :) Have fun storming the castle!

    What "proper games" would you play? I have trouble finding them! :( Just free-to-play nonsense with in-app purchase and timers!

    Sorry to hi-jack - but anyone got any games worthy of the "proper game" description?

    Oceanhorn?
    Bioshock?
    Secret of Mana?
    Final Fantasy 3?

    All of those games have MFi support.

    Thanks for the suggestions :)
    Oceanhorn is at the top of my "buy next" list.

    Bioshock was one I'd avoided - read a few reviews early on about dated graphics and not being that satisfying on the iPhone. But having just read user reviews on the app store, I may be changing my mind on that one.

    Me too on buying Oceanhorn next, it's the closest resemblance to a Zelda title we've ever had.

    Also if you were so inclined you could install gba4ios on your phone through the safari browser and play GBA games on your phone via emulator with a MFi bluetooth controller.

    I did give the gba4ios a try once, when it was updated earlier this year. Then it didn't work after an update, and I couldn't get it working again.
    I haven't got a bluetooth controller, but considering it.

    I do have Apple TV. Only really tried it with Asphalt games, and the lag made it un-playable. I was forever crashing due to the delay when I needed to turn, and could never pre-empt the delay!
    I don't know if that's my TV and HDMI processing delays or just wifi issues - both Apple TV (2nd Gen I think) and iPhone/iPad connected to a Time Capsule.
