Disappointed with the current MFi (or "Made for iPhone") game controllers on the market? As Engadget reports, Mad Catz introduced yet another offering in the form of its C.T.R.L.i gamepad during the Mobile World Congress 2014, and it looks like it has potential.
That gives iOS 7 users four choices now, as the previous MFi releases were the SteelSeries Stratus, the Logitech PowerShell, and the MOGA Ace Power. Much like the Stratus, the C.T.R.L.i connects via Bluetooth instead of through the Lightning port, and it supports a spring-loaded mount that works with the iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, and iPhone 5c.
If you're familiar with Mad Catz's hardwire, you might recognize the unit. It's based on the MLG Pro Circuit Controller designed for the Xbox 360, which means it has all of the buttons console gamers expect from for Microsoft's larger system. That includes a directional pad, four face buttons, two analog sticks, left and right triggers, and shoulder bumpers.
The unit should be available in April, when it will retail for $80. The C.T.R.L.i will be available in black, red, white, orange, and blue.
