New iOS controller - 60beat Gamepad

Don't know if anyone else has spotted this but it looks interesting. Seems too simple. Here's a link to the website: http://www.60beat.com/category_s/73.htm

Also, the website says it can still supply audio through headphones via a splitter. I've already ordered one. Guess I'm toftt.

Id personally wait on buying until there's a larger list of compatible games, which they say will be shown in february. Not gonna fork over that much money to play to games I've barely heard of....

I don't want a signature.

Well I really like Aftermath. I'd love to see how this will work for that game. I'm not rich, but I decided to give it a shot. I'm just tired of waiting for that magical BT controller to come out. Who knows, I could end up regretting this purchase. I'll let everyone know if and when it gets here, how well it works. Maybe the TA guys will get a chance to give it a shot.

If it does what it is supposed to do then I will add it into Pompom Games Mutant Storm conversion to iOS, which I'm in the process of converting over.

I would say Mutant Storm is one of the best duel stick shooters ever to be made and this controller (if good and responsive) will certainly enhance it.

Just an update on my order. I ordered it this morning, with a little hesitation about the service I would get, but they've processed my order and sent a tracking no. with USPS. So far, so good.

This controller looks pretty cool and would be awesome for dual-stick shooters. I've already contacted them to get an SDK. I want to see about getting my games, Alien Space and Alien Space Retro, working with this. If it's a pretty simple process I can add support and have an update out in short order.

Independent developer of Alien Space, Alien Space Retro, and now Annihilate

Would definitely consider getting this when more games are supported.
