Atari Arcade Duo Powered is an iPad controller from Atari, doubles as a time machine
Atari, famous for its gaming consoles in the 80s, might not have what it takes to release a full-fledged console today, but it certainly has the guts to ride the iOS success wave with an all-new iOS controller, the Atari Arcade Duo Powered. And really, that’s pretty much a dream come true for every grown-up gamer from those dark ages, but also a chance for youngsters to catch up with the 80s hype on their iPad.
The controller mimics a Bluetooth keyboard to connect and supports both landscape and portrait orientation, but instead of viciously tapping on your 9.7-inch screen you have all that screen estate for ogling while your fingers get busy attacking the keys and the joystick.
$99 iCade, which goes all retro on the iPad putting in the cage of cabinet-styled gaming consoles.
That iCade is already available, but the Atari Arcade Duo Powered is coming soon with a probably cheaper price tag.
The only thing left? You might need those 100 games in Atari’s Greatest Hits collection which is free on iTunes, and your iPad will turn into a time machine to the eighties.
