“Gamevice – the only Apple approved, Lightning connected game controller for latency free gameplay”
With the release of Apple’s 9.7-inch iPad Pro, Gamevice, makers of the only the only Apple approved, Lightning-connected game controller built for latency free gameplay, will be launching a new controller for iPad (the new device will support iPad Air, iPad Air 2 and iPad Pro 9.7). The iPad controller will available in April in the United States, while the iPad Pro version (which supports iPad Pro 12.3) will launch in sometime in the second quarter of 2016.
The iPad Pro is potentially a very strong mobile gaming platform, with more graphics processing power than the Xbox 360. Gamevice hopes that by adding ergonomic controls to the iPad Pro 9.7 and 12.3 it will improve the experience enough to make it the ultimate handheld gaming console. Thanks to its connection via a lightning port, this new controller delivers a zero-latency experience to any optimized game.
“Gamevice for iPad Pro has been optimized to make gaming with the 12.3-inch screen comfortable to hold whilst playing – something that’s hard to do with the iPad 12.3-inch version, without the Gamevice attached.”
There are currently more than 800 controller-supported games on iOS, which could make the Gamevice a must-have accessory for game lovers. Some of the iOS games to support Gamevice include:
- FIFA 16
- Minecraft: Pocket Edition
- Final Fantasy VII
