ThinkGeek – the folks who brought us the popular iCade game controllers for the iPad, have just launched a new NES-inspired game controller with 8 buttons for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch called iCade 8-Bitty.
iCade 8-Bitty as the name suggests is a handheld video game controller in the classic style 8-bit style, which brings retro-gaming experience to iOS.
It connects to the iOS devices via Bluetooth. It’s it’s compatible with a growing list of hundreds of retro game apps, including the Atari Classics collection, Pac Man, Super Mega Worm, and more.
iCade 8-Bitty costs $25. The only problem is that they’re so popular that the iOS game controller has been completely sold out in just a few hours after it was launched earlier today.
