SteelSeries Stratus Bluetooth Wireless Controller: Hands-On Review

Stratus Game Controller 1At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, SteelSeries announced that it would be launching the first-ever wireless gamepad for iOS 7. What makes a controller like this so exciting is that it can be used with any device, including iPad or iPhone, as long as it meets technical requirements and is running iOS 7 or higher.

Most game controllers that are on the market right now cater to the iPhone. Logitech’s Powershell, for example, lets you place your iPhone inside a specially designed controller. No room for upgraded phones and certainly no room for the iPad.

SteelSeries’ new Bluetooth controller, the Stratus, makes it possible for you to game on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch and keeps you connected to your Apple devices, no matter what future generation you invest in.

Padcaster Set to Release iPad mini Version of Poplar Mobile Production Studio

Padcaster

The critically acclaimed Padcaster is at the center of another Kickstarter campaign after being featured in the ‘Your Verse’ iPad commercial from Apple. I was impressed when I wrote about the Padcaster Mini last year and I remain a supporter of the product, but it seems that with one failed Kickstarter the new campaign is going to have to make a bigger impression.

Signal’s New ‘RP One’ iPad Game Controller Takes Styling Cues from Xbox

RP-Oneb

Wireless gaming controllers for iOS are all the rage right now. Newcomer ‘Signal’ is premiering their first offering at CES called the RP One. This controller connects via Bluetooth and will be available for $99.99 in the first half of 2014.

The RP One looks similar to an Xbox controller and as long as they have steered clear of copyright infringements, I would hardly call mimicking one of the best controllers ever a bad idea. While it certainly lacks imagination in the design category, I think new controllers on the market are good for everyone and will hopefully help bring down the ridiculous prices.
