With iOS 7 came much better support for third-party gaming peripherals, and the MFi (Made-for-iPhone) controller seems to be all the rage lately among accessory makers. Mad Catz is one of many manufacturers that plans to release more controllers for iOS 7 devices, and Engadget reports that the company recently unveiled its latest development: the C.T.R.L.i.
The controller is the first from Mad Catz to natively support iOS 7 and, while it’s still in active development, Engadget had the opportunity to experience the peripheral and confirm that it’s indeed in fully-playable condition. The device features a “spring-loaded mount” to holster your iOS device, and said mount is attached with a screw – meaning users who wish to use the controller with a device too big for the clip can remove it altogether.
Although many MFi-type controllers have been known as of yet to be expensive and of low build-quality, Mad Catz hopes to break that trend this Spring with the C.T.R.L.i. The device is expected to launch for $80 and come in black, white, blue, red, and orange variations.
