Old School 8bit Controller Coming to the iPad and iPhone

Old School 8bit Controller Coming to the iPad and iPhone

So, remember the NES? How would you like a Nintendo Entertainment System inspired controller that you can use with your iPhone or iPad to play games with? Thinkgeek has come up with this brilliant idea, calling it the iCade 8-bitty

The new controller looks almost identical to an NES controller, to the color of the buttons and the look of the d-pad. Even the start and select button placement is the same. The only real difference appears to be the wood finish around the controller and the the fact there are four face buttons instead of two. The device connects over Bluetooth to your iPhone or iPad and should be available some time later this year.

The announced price for the device is a mere $24.99, and seems to be quite the steal if you are a mobile gamer.
