    80 bucks for a properly (apple) designed luxury gamepad? sure, instabuy, even it's quite expensive...

    ...but for this? meh :(

    I'll wait until Christmas, there will probably be a sale or price drop.

    Or I'll just get it used for a massive discount off amazon. Seriously though, Wild blood and asphalt 7 would be awesome. And just to not have a ton of screen clutter? Worth the $80.

    $80 no $40 yes. Just wait until it drops in price like the iCade did.

    Asphalt 7 is supported (along with O&C and NOVA3), but not Wild Blood or anything else yet. According to that 148Apps piece, they are planning to eventually support 6 games total, or more. Whatever that means...

    Edit: in fact why does the title of this thread say MC3, when it's not even one of the supported games? Or did 148Apps get their info wrong (they do have a screenshot of the AppStore showing only 3 supported games)?

    With the economy the way it is? Gotta watch what you spend.

    But I would pick this up for $40. I hate to admit it, but I do play a lot of Gameloft games. I really do. I would probably get my money's worth if they continue to support the controller for future games. On yeah, and if the controller isn't as uncomfortable to hold as it looks.

    I do play their games too, but I don't find it that great IMO. Slidetoplay said that it's very uncomfortable.

  12. What? Only for Gameloft games? Crazy...

    Sigh, I was really getting my hopes up. Would spend the dough to get one, but only if all games could use it.

    By the way, there's now a pinball duo machine. You can play Pinball HD on it, looks good.

    yeah, lol @vid... even my old dreamcast controller looks like a futuristic ueber-device compared to this

    probably a good deal (beside it's proprietary)... for about 9.99$ :p

    I would definitely consider getting one (or two) of these if I knew that the emulator authors were going to support it. I wouldn't mind not having to use a WiiMote just to host a Classic Controller Pro.

    (speaking of emulators, where is the JB sub-forum anyway?)

    Cant believe it'll only work for Gameloft games, forget that then.

    I would love ION to do an 'icade' for Pinball, eg buttons at the side. Happy as anything with the iCade though, brilliant bit of kit.

    I tried to follow the linked message which presumably explained the reasons for all this, but I only got a completely blank page. Can anybody PM me with clarification?

    Thus the only reason I became a member here is dead. :mad: Can anyone suggest other Web zones frequented by Valdeita (Seleuco) and Broglia?

    I'm sure any jailbroken emu would accommodate the Duo-Gamer. But we wouldn't read any news about that here, now would we? :mad:
