It’s no secret that we love the iCade around here. We even maintain a list of great games to get once you have one. We already knew about two new iCade units that were revealed at CES, but today ThinkGeek dropped something on us that’s so cool that my monocle blasted right off my face and is currently flying at the speed of light straight out of our solar system. Feast your eyes on this:
The iCade 8-Bitty addresses basically all of my complaints (and I use the word “complaints" pretty lightly here) about the iCade ecosystem. iCades are big, and even the new models from CES were fairly expensive. The 8-Bitty is only $25, and looks like it’ll finally be the ultra-portable iOS game controller I’ve been dreaming of. According to ThinkGeek, it works just like the rest of the iCade family, emulating a keyboard via Bluetooth and will integrate seamlessly with all existing games with iCade support.
To receive an email notification of when the 8-Bitty is in stock, head on over to ThinkGeek, and as soon we get get our greasy hands on one you can bet we’ll have a full review up.
