Duo Games, in collaboration with Gameloft, has announced a new wireless controller for your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Called the Duo Gamer, the set comes with a wireless controller as well as a dock for your iOS device.
The controller has six buttons on it (four on the front and two on the shoulder), two joysticks and a D-Pad. The dock uses a 30-pin connector and has an HDMI-out for connecting to a larger screen, if required.
Since the dock has been made in collaboration with Gameloft, it naturally works well with Gameloft titles, including Asphalt 7: Heat, Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation, N.O.V.A. 3, Order & Chaos Online and Brothers in Arms 2: Global Front. Unfortunately, it seems these are all the games that are supported at the moment and hopefully more will in the future.
The controller will be sold through Apple Stores, Amazon, Best Buy and Target. In fact, Amazon already seems to have it up for pre-order for $79.99. If you play a lot of “console quality” games, and by that I mean Gameloft titles only, then this seems like a good thing to have. Gameloft does seem to come up with new games on a regular basis, so you’d have a steady supply of games to play with. Wish it worked with more games, though.
