Gaming peripheral maker Razer may be working on an iPhone accessory that turns Apple’s smartphone into a handheld gaming system, complete with direction pads and shoulder buttons.
According to a tip sent to @evleaks, the upcoming will have pressure-sensitive buttons and a hinge that lets you rest the phone flat against the controller or tilt it up at a 45 degree angle.
This would hardly be the first mobile gaming add-on for an iPhone. Logitech offers a PowerShell accessory for $100, and if that price is a bit too steep, you can pick up an Ion Audio iCade Mobile Gaming controller for as little as $2. Just don’t expect stellar performance or build quality at that price.
There’s no word on how much Razer’s model will cost or when it will be available — but the company made a big splash at CES 2013 by introducing a Windows gaming tablet and accessories. It’s not hard to imagine Razer unveiling its plans for the iOS space at CES 2014 next month.
