But, people still laugh at me for trying to play my ipad as a console, but it is a heck of a lot of fun. I dragged out one of my old xboxes, played halo, jetset radio, soul calibur, and mame. Got bored in 2 hours. Put it away, got my ipad out, stuck my hdmi tv cable in, got my icade core out and had a lot of fun. Metal slug x was awesome with a joystick.
And you know what? I like both the icade core and Gameloft duo gamer better than the xbox controller. The icade core is more like an arcade stick, and the gameloft duo is lighter. Plus of course they are wirless not wired.
Anyway, hopeful an apple joystick will come out by xmas time, if not, it's ok with me for now, I got 2 great joysticks to use in the meantime
