Default What ever happened to Mad Catz CTRL i?

Disappeared since E3. They first said April, then summer. With that quickly disappearing, when can we expect this thing if ever?

It's still coming, along with 5-10 other MFi controllers. I wouldn't expect too long of a way from now. Apple has a major event in early September, and it's possible some manufactures are waiting for that...

I just saw on the website store that this isn't for pre order anymore and actually for sale. Anyone get theres yet? Would love impressions. Also anyone know if they are in stores already or will be?

I hadn't realized the MFi standard didn't include click-sticks.

(Although I'd never want that for important/frequent actions, I often use it during Mac gaming for less-common functions like Toggle Prone.)

I like the idea of a separate phone attachment--skip it for iPad use, but if you also want to use a phone (without video-out) sometime, there's your solution.

So no one has this yet? Would be great to see a full review from Jared or something.

for what it's worth, I ordered one from Amazon, 59.00 and change. One of our members posted a YouTube video review ( I wish I could find that thread) and that's what convinced me. And I'm very satisfied with my purchase. I don't use it all the time, and I'm not used to a controller so I need to get into it more, but I will say that it works very well, fits my hands, and doesn't seem "cheaply" made like I've heard about a lot of other units. It's a solid piece of equipment. The phone holder has a spring clamp and I can easily get my Otter-boxed 5s in it no problem. The main issue is keeping up with games as they update to this equipment. However, if you like Donut Games (and really who doesn't) most of them have been updated for mifi and they are a lot of fun with it. So that's my .02 for now. I'll try to find Steve's thread and post it.

Try this link, if not check the controller thread page 165. I'm writing on my iPad and it doesn't do links very well.

Cool thx I was hoping to get this at a store but I don't see it anywhere so I'll probably just order it.
