No, Apple Is NOT Making a Game Controller

While many outlets are reporting that the patent is for an Apple Game Controller, the patent clearly lays out plans for using existing game controllers and NOT an Apple-designed gamepad. (Industry)

Well that's no brainer. Apple has no incentive to join the console game. It makes better sense to when the eventually launch their AppleTV just have their existing app store and games there.

Why wouldn't they make a controller that can be used with the iPad?

Apple TV could also eventually be turned into a streaming games service like OnLive. I wouldn't count Apple out of the gaming industry just yet. They have a ton of mindless drones who buy anything Apple.

Apple is already in the gaming industry with mobile.

I was assuming that with apples strong president than it wants touchscreen only for mobile this wouldn't be for a pre-existing product but I may be wrong.

Apple entering the home gaming market would be great as it means completion and that breeds innovation no matter if the succeed or not.

But you make a very valid point and I completely respect it.

Agreed...Apple can easily make a gaming controller and slap an APPLE logo on it and it would sell million.

I am not joking my family alone is full of Apple fanatics who breath eat sleep apple products.

I Samsung supporter so I get labelled the black by my peeps.

Yea they could use the controller to play the games from the app store easily using the AppleTv.

Okay, but can someone explain the figure of Mario on an iMac on figure 60 of the patent?

Looks more like Apple wants to control everything with Apple TV and transfer the games or files in a cloud gaming like way from Your console to iMac, Ipad, Iphone, Ipod, and etc. In a LAN environment it wouldn't require as much bandwidth to transfer in that short distance.

Not shocked but I was looking forward to Sony crushing Apple in court

Lol, like Sony can afford lawyers good enough to take on APPLE

Sorry but it is not who has more money!
it is who can present the case better, and believe it or not, an infringement is an infringement.
Apple has proven it before, as well as Sony.
Now, the only problem here is that Sony and apple act as bodies, so they might have let it be.

Anyhow, your post shows that you are ignorant in these kind of cases.

Because some "amateur game journalists" can't read a patent correctly.
