Steelseries Stratus controller gets a $20 price cut

Two weeks ago, Steelseries began taking pre-orders for the Steelseries Stratus, the first officially licensed controller for iPad and iPhone.

As of yesterday, the pad is now available to purchase from the US Apple Store. However, the manufacturer has decided to lower the price of the unit - originally listed as $99.99 - to the slightly more affordable sum of $79.99.

However, before you early adopters cry foul, Steelseries has also confirmed that it will honour the $79.99 price for anyone who had pre-ordered the device.

The pocket-sized peripheral is compatible with several iOS games from launch, including the likes of Bastion and Limbo - both of which we greatly enjoyed.

The pad itself - which will only pair with iOS 7 devices - features two analogue sticks, a d-pad, four face buttons, and four shoulder buttons. It also promises a 10-hour battery life, meaning it should stand up to extended gaming sessions on the go.

US gamers can grab the Steelseries Stratus from the Apple Store now. Gamers in the UK will have to continue to wait patiently for a release date.
