Apple working on proprietary controller — rumor

Apple is working on adding to its peripheral line-up, an Anandtech review of the latest iPad notes (via). And it’s gaming related of course.

“An internal Apple project to bring a physical controller to market” is apparently in the works, though it is noted in the very same sentence that “whether or not it will ever see the light of day remains to be seen.”

A separate controller will probably find some popularity with the more hardcore gamers — as touch controls aren’t all that effective for shooters and such — but Apple is probably at any given time fiddling away with a number of add-ons that never see the light of day, so don’t take this to the bank just yet.
