... Since the 3.0 update and we still have yet to see any even remotely successful use of an external gaming accesory. I was wondering whether you guys think this idea will ever get off the ground or if it is coming but slowly. What do you think?

I'm wondering where 3.2 is.

I want a controller too.

This is the main reason I love my NES emulator because it has Wiimote support, although an official one would be pretty awesome, can I still update if I'm jailbroken?

The jailbreak NES emulator, you can use a wiimote to play it, the N64 one too.

I mean tan official external remote for all games would be awesome.

Well, iControlPad was in the works, but it's been in the works since the days of 2.X... They were taking reservations for early control pads, but it could be a long time before it comes out. I'm not jailbreaking my new iPod yet, but when I do I want this. It would make emulating that much easier.
