    I'm in Paris at the moment to attend Paris Games Week and there is a French retailer selling PC gaming accessories including two of the following Madcatz Bluetooth Game Pads. Will any of them work or likely work with the new Apple TV. If any one can provide advice that would be great. They look far more solid then the Nimbus Steelseries ones. Plus the lay out is more like the Xbox controllers.

    The first one won't. But the c.t.r.l.i and c.t.r.l.i micro will. I've actually been using the c.t.r.l.i with my Apple TV.

    Thanks for the reply. That's good to know. I'm debating whether to get one of these or the Nimbus controller.

    I'm really liking the look of the Nimbus, though I didn't like the triggers on their previous pad, which is why I ended up with the Mad Catz C.T.R.L.I, which I've found to be really good in every way apart from the D-Pad could be improved on. (It's a lot like the Xbox 360 pad, not that I'm suggesting that's where they got their inspiration :D)

    Still, I think I might try and get a hands-on with the Nimbus at some point to see how it feels, going to need another controller for two player games anyway.

    for the price, it's tough to beat the nimbus controller. Gonna test it out with my ATV (hopefully this weekend) and if it cuts the muster I'll grab another one from the apple store.

    The Madcatz game pads are around the same price and seem to have more functionality.

    Personally I prefer the d-pad on the Madcatz game pads to the Nimbus ones.
