Report: Apple to release game controller this year According to Jon Jordan, Apple made it clear during this year's GDC that they are ready to release their own dedicated game controller.
The reporter says the company used the conference to lets developers know about its plans and to ensure that their games will support the controller.

Additionally, the report says Apple booked a meeting room at the show under an assumed name, as to avoid media attention.

Apple is expected to announce the controller officially at its April event, in which they usually announce a new iPad.

Samsung recently beat Apple to the punch, introducing their own Game Pad for smartphones. (Pictured)

You have to laugh, Nvidia bought out something almost identical... for real!!

It also looks like something I saw on Kickstarter... you know, that place where Apple seem to steal a lot of their ideas lately. :)

Its a lot easier being righteous than right.
