Apple shows iOS 7 game controller plans

Quote:
Apple has confirmed that it will license official iOS 7 game controllers that at least initially are to be produced by Logitech and Moga.

The reveal came during a session at WWDC where, during a 45-min presentation, Apple outlined the requirements for the new devices, showing hardware mock-ups and talking through best-practice guidelines.

XYAB yellow, red, blue, green.
R2 and L2 triggers, thumb sticks and D pad.

Erm, I can think of at least 20 people on this forum that could have come up with that design...
I'm sure MS are looking it and consulting their patents.

Doubt they have any patents for those as they ripped them off from the SNES, Dreamcast and the lot.

Also this looks like an admission that touch screens are **** for gaming that's not Plants v Zombies or Candy Crush.

just because someone posts it on a website, doesn't make it a fact.

those slides definitely aren't apple slide, they're not even aligned uniformly.

I don't cal BS, but..

Apple: "we'd like a controller, buttons to the side of the screen like a PSP, D pad, 4 coloured buttons ( cos everyone else has 4 ). those thumb stick thingsw, we like them. Shoulder buttons and a headphone socket.

Designers: this is what we've got, what we done was took a PSP design and photo shopped a iPhone in front of it, then re drew it in MS paint.
My 6 year old needs some credit tho for the colour. White or black to match the phone...

Its just a mock up and it won't be made by apple.


Apple shows controller framework for iOS 7

Quote:
Apple has published a game controller framework for iOS 7, and that OS X 10.9 "Mavericks" will also have controller support. The move is Apple's response to the booming iOS game market, but the firm also stresses that any games written to take advantage of controllers must also be playable without them. It's unknown if Apple plans to manufacture any of these controllers itself.

According to the bit-tech link it'll be logitech

we know what your saying Scuppy, but it just looks like bit-tech have got a piece of information.

"Apple are confirmed game controllers for iphone and ipad" and got Mickey Mouse to draw up a few pictures to fill the page of their "scoop".

It doesn't look like "Apple" and their glitzy media presentation and it sure doesn't look like Logitech either.

I think the point is that the brief is out to the marketplace, the fact its a dodgy render to illustrate the concept

With the game apps its a good idea to have a more options to play and games developers include apple in there thinking for release, the reports from e3 feel the market for phone games is bigger than console sales

Forget the pictures, ( I can knock one up here with our software that would look better than what has been added to this thread)

Wow...thats not photoshopped....much!

Light direction on the iPhone is from 10 O'clock, light on controller part is from 12 O'clock.

And why X,Y,A and B layout like the Xbox?

Hands on: PowerShell Controller + Battery review | Mobile phone accessories Reviews | TechRadar

It has it's own battery. So saves on the life of your iPhone's. Pretty good idea.
