Default ThinkGeek Announces 'iCade 8-Bitty' Retro Gamepad for iDevices

This past CES, we learned of some 'iCade' products that aim to turn your iPhone or iPod touch into a better mobile gaming device, but of those solutions, none seemed that convenient (and in fact could be considered gimmicky). Today, however, ThinkGeek announced a solution that might just be the best we'll ever get - at least where simple, 8-bit esque games are concerned.

Read the rest of our post and then discuss it here!
Intel Core i7-3960X, GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2, Kingston 16GB DDR3-2133, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 2GB
Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD (OS, Apps), WD VR 1TB (Games), Corsair 1000HX, Corsair H70 Cooler
Corsair 800D, Dell 2408WFP 24", ASUS Xonar Essence STX, Gentoo (KDE 4.11. 3.12 Kernel)

I still like their mini iCade that looks like a miniature old style video arcade. I played a few games on one and I thought it worked fine, but then again what do I know, I'm not much of a gamer myself.
