Gaming popularity in mobile devices has been increased in the past years, but still there are limitations of mobile games, especially the complex ones that the control schemes of such games are often unsuitable for the touch screen. However, some of the companies have found the solution for this issue, by transforming your Android device into an Android-powered gaming console. Earlier, Samsung launched their own GamePad, which appears quiet similar to Nvidia Shield and now, Wikipad have launched their Gamevice controller for Android devices.
Wikipad’s Gamevice controller is a detachable controller, similar to a controller on a gaming console. So, when you place the Gamevice on your Android device, it transforms the device into a screen and thereby, allowing all controls to be moved on the screen. The Gamevice controller features dual analog sticks, both L1/R1 and L2/R2 analog buttons, an analog D-pad, and four analog action buttons, providing a feel of a console controller. However, Wikipad did mention that they are currently working the versions for Windows 8 and Android devices, but they have not forgotten about the other platforms and will soon release the controller for them too sometimes in 2014.
“We value the opinions of our community. We heard from many people who either expressed love for the Wikipad 7” or who already owned an iPad or an Android or Windows 8 mobile device and wanted us to make a controller that worked for them. We are currently working on versions for Windows 8 and Android devices. We have not forgotten other important OS systems and we hope to announce additional support those in the near future,” said Fraser Townley, President of Wikipad, Inc.
Gamevice offers full fledge mobile console experiences with the slim portable controller and connects effortlessly to Android devices. However, there are no words about its availability, pricing and the device support, but will be releasing sometimes in 2014. Stay tuned for more updates.
