For a long time, Mad Catz has been known as one of the leading manufacturers of joysticks, headphones, keyboards, and gamepads. Now, at the Mobile World Congress, the company announced that it has created its first iOS 7 compatible controller - the C.T.R.L.i.
Yes, we know it's a silly name. But the C.T.R.L.i's chassis has a fantastic pedigree, lifting its design directly from Mad Catz Xbox 360 acclaimed MLG Pro Circuit controller.
Providing there are no changes to this core design, the new pad should have a great build quality and responsive keys – though its size could be a worry for on-the-go gamers.
If its size doesn't put you off, there are a number of changes to the pad in its transition to iOS 7 that will benefit mobile player.
The inclusion of Bluetooth is the first of these changes, ensuring all iOS 7 devices will be able to make use of the new controller. It will also have an unobtrusive mount to allow you to securely attach devices in place while you play.
The C.T.R.L.i. will be released in North America this spring. It will cost $80, and be available in black, white, blue, red, and orange.
