Gameloft announces Bluetooth iOS joypad

Yet another Bluetooth iOS controller is on the way courtesy of leading developer Gameloft.

What differentiates the Duo Gamer, however, is that it’s the first of its kind to be officially certified by Apple. Existing peripherals, such as the arcade-emulating iCade, work by tricking iOS into thinking they are a bluetooth keyboard.

However, there’s a big caveat consumers need to be aware of – the Duo Gamer only supports Gameloft titles. Specifically, at the current time, it supports five games – Asphalt 7, Modern Combat 3, Brothers in Arms 2, NOVA 3 and Order & Chaos.

It also costs a hefty $80 in the US, placing it far beyond its competition – most of which boast a broader compatibility list, too.

The Duo Gamer will be sold in Apple Stores, though we’re yet to learn of any other UK retailers who will carry the product.
