Atari branded arcade dock for iPads in B&M
« on: June 02, 2013, 04:11:54 PM »
Spotted these in local B&M branch earlier on today. Knock-off iCade?

*edit* http://www.amazon.co.uk/Atari-Arcade-Duo-Powered-iPad/dp/B006CDP0OU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1370188653&sr=8-1&keywords=atari+arcade+duo - £59.99 from Amazon, but another dealer doing them for £21.99

Although this review - http://reviews.cnet.com/home-entertainment/atari-arcade-duo-powered/4505-6449_7-35022508.html] - seems to not rate them but suppose you're only wasting £17 instead of the original RRP.

Shame it isn't bluetooth so it could be used with Android tablets.

I might be wrong but i think there's limited support even on the iPad apps. Predominately it's for use with Atari's own 99 in one games pack which is actually rather cool as the Atari 2600 & Arcade classics  have been modded for touchscreen and shock/horror, they actually did a good job of it. I'm pretty sure you can't use this with Mame variants  or all the other iCade SDK friendly apps.....but for that price, bit of a bargain for ios owning Atari fans.
