    Hey guys,
    the other I was searching the internet, and was looking for a good controller for my iphone. I saw many good controllers out there, but there was one controller that cought my eye.

    its called the Rii Gaming controller. it works via bluetooth, and you just inset your iphone in the middle of the controller. it looks a lot like a Ps Vita. It doesnt seem that popular, and I could not find anything on the internet about this controller, reviews, videos etc.

    so I ended up taking a risk, and purchasing the controller for $29 on amazon, and just the other day it arrived. To my surprise, it is actually really good! I dont know why it isnt very popular, and no one has heard about it before. The controller is solid, and has a good feel to it, and the buttons are very nice. (although, they are a little clicky if I have to be picky haha).

    to show you guys what its like, I decided to do a quick video of it:
    (unboxing)​
    (gameplay)​
    (note to moderators, I am not trying to advertize my video or anything, its there mearly to demonstrate and show the product. if you would like, I can put links in the description of the video advertizing GBA Temp)​

    The range of games you can play for it is also quite good! it uses the same system as the iCade mobile, so whatever games that well known controller can use, this controller can too. Also, if you have a jailbroken device, you can get blutrol and use this controller with almost any IOS game! :D

    one other thing is, this controller is also compatible with the iPad, iPad mini and the iPod touch (even though its only designed to fit with the iPhone 4/4s)

    so I was wondering, have you guys ever heard of the Rii Gaming controller or is it just me? and if you have and did buy one, what are your thoughts?

    thanks guys for your time :D

    It honestly looks pretty cool to me, about the only complaint I might have is my hands are pretty large and in the video's it looks tiny.

    Never heard of it before your post, and I am not sure why to be honest. The price is pretty decent for what it is.

    It is a little small to be honest, but its not to bad.

    no one has heard of it because there has been like zero advertizing for this product, and no one as ever done a youtube video of it or a review in the past.

    This looks like a great controller! Thank you for sharing info about this.

    May I ask, are there specific games it works with? Do you have a compatibility chart?
