The 8-Bitty is compatible with the iCade-compatible games library including Atari Greatest Hits
ThinkGeek has announced the NES-inspired iCade 8-Bitty - the latest in its range of retro gaming controllers for iPhone, iPad and Android
Let's make no bones. With the announcement of its iCade 8-Bitty gamepad for iPhone, iPad and Android, ThinkGeek is not merely evoking the 8-bit era with an 80s-styled peripheral. It is specifically emulating the controller of the original Nintendo Entertainment System and in doing so, recreating (or trying to, at least) a classic piece of controller design. It would have been fascinating to be a fly on the wall in the conference room at ThinkGeek HQ when a name for the product - it's hard to imagine that the name iCade Nessy was not discussed.
