New Collapsible Game Controller For iPhone 6/6s/6s Plus Launched
There have been a lot of controllers for Apple’s iPhone devices in the past and with the recent increased focus towards mobile gaming thanks to improved Unreal Engine support and powerful hardware in the latest iPhone models, the number of controllers will only continue to grow. Most of these MFi controllers have however been kind of clunky and big while some of them transform your device into a giant tablet with a controller almost as big as Xbox/PlayStation one.
Similar to Logitech’s PowerShell for iPhone 5 and 5s, the newly released Gamevice game controller seeks to provide users with a cool looking streamlined experience in the form of a shell that encases the iPhone turning it into a portable gaming machine similar to Sony’s PS Vita. This new controller focuses entirely on the latest models including iPhone 6, 6s and 6s Plus.
Gamevice takes a different approach from other gaming controllers that are focused on connectivity via the wireless Bluetooth protocol by embracing Lightning connector for connectivity instead. But unlike the PowerShell, the true flexibility of the Gamevice comes from the fact that it can support both 4.7 and 5.5-inch handsets thanks to its unique design.
The collapsible and travel friendly shell design of the controller makes it easy to carry around even in the lightest of luggage. It also features an LED panel on the main controller that provides visual feedback to the gamer, thanks to a built-in lithium-polymer 400 mAh battery.
Like all modern gaming controllers, it has all the buttons and functions available like two analogue sticks, one D-pad, four game control buttons, a pause button and 4 paddles similar to L and R buttons on controllers for gaming consoles.
The Gamevice controller for iPhones is available for $99.9, with a model designed for the iPad mini available as well.
