Gamepad Turns Your iPhone/iPod Into A Game Boy

It’s pretty much an accepted fact that the iPhone is a great mobile gaming platform. What is also accepted is that the controls are somewhat less then optimal for some kinds of games. Enter the iControlPad. Now, I’m not 100% behind this idea, mainly because it takes a mobile gaming device and makes it decidely less mobile. I guess you could carry the iControlPad with you, and just put your iPod in when you want to use it, but that doesn’t sound very convenient either. Of course, the kind of games that support the iControlPad require a jailbroken iPhone, and some additional downloads to use them. No word on pricing or availability yet, but you can check out their website for details or to sign up to be notified when it’s available.
