Those who are new users of Apple devices often find it difficult to manage touchscreen controls while playing a game. Such controls have managed casual gaming. However, it is difficult to play hardcore games with Touchscreen controls.
Physical gaming controls like joysticks are needed for some hardcore gaming. Now, it seems like such dream may come true.
A recent report published in AnandTech, Apple is working on a physical gaming controller for iOS devices to make gaming experience on iOS devices, more interesting and exciting.
The blog post mentioned:
“I know of an internal Apple project to bring a physical controller to market, but whether or not it will ever see the light of day remains to be seen. As smartphones and tablets come close to equalling the performance of current game consoles, I feel like the controller problem must be addressed.”
Apart from this report, an article by PatentlyApple, published on 1 April 2012, showed the first view of Apple’s new gaming accessories that are rumored to be in the works. While some units will possibly have a Wi-Fi like motion sensing capability, others will wirelessly connect to your home theater or HDTV. They will also sport a dual display configuration.
