gaming controller

So only recently ive taken notice of the ipod/iphone capabilities for gaming
and ive read about supposed controllers and peripherals coming out but havent seen anything. i would much rather have something to just plug my ipod into than bring a ds/psp and games around.
i just whipped this up of something i thought would be cool

basically you just slide it in, the controller would give you more button options, more precise joystick control, plus built in speakers (when ever im playing i always have to be conscious of my hand blocking the ipods speakers) and a built in battery for long life span.
i can see some problems with this but i just did it up quick for some discussion
thanks

Hehe, just use the search function and you'll find dozens of threads about that.
It is an everlasting discussion with no solution yet.

Btw., nice layout!

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Yeah, that is a nice looking layout. The only thing I would say is missing is another analog stick, so there are two for all the great twin stick shooters.

Oh Ok, that makes sense. I don't understand why a company like Logitech doesn't put something like this out. I hear a lot of talk about it but have yet to actually see any proto-types or anything.
