When are we getting an iPad controller?


I've been scouring the internet looking for any information on an iPad controller, now that we have the new IOS7 control pad functionality.

I'm also seeing many games start to come out with controller support.
So AWESOME right?

However, I can't find any information on an iPad controller.
No information on any that can be purchased, and
even more alarming is no information that any are in development.
What gives?

Logitech and other companies are leaving money on the table, as we need this device!

Am I missing something obvious?
Is there any information out there to share?

Please reply.

I too hope there will be an bluetooth xbox or ps4 type controller someday.

And add to that hdmi that works good, not lightning hdmi, so we can make our ipads consoles.

Honestly, at the last Apple conference this was what I was hoping they would announce. In the midst of everyone talking about the new Xbox and Playstation and the steam console, I actually thought they would take them on and present the truly portable console. But, sadly, they did not. Instead, we have 5 new colors for the iPhone

MOGA & Logitech both have Bluetooth controllers in the works.
These 2 companies will release the first BT MFi controllers, donot hold out for BladePad or GameCase.
