iOS Gamepad in Development, Next iPad the Apple Console That's Been Rumored?

Virtual Katz Writes: The rumor mill has been swirling for years that Apple would be jumping into the console race with a similar device to the upcoming Steambox. Well, it seems that the possibility of the rumor coming to light maybe closer than we all think. According to Computerandvideogames.com, at the Game Developers Conference just last week, Apple took time to meet with developers and inform them that they are in the process of developing a official gamepad for the iOS operating system. The news isn’t surprising considering even Samsung showed off the gamepad that they are releasing for use with the next iteration of the Samsung Galaxy S series phone. On top of that, the other swirling rumors of the next iPad being shown off at a press event this month, only pays homage to the development cycle for new accessories which at that point, is not all that shocking. What may come as more of a surprise is the possibility that the controller could have bigger implications on the next iPad and it’s overall capabilities. (Apple, Dev, iPad, iPhone, Mobile)

If you want Android features, get an Android.
Apple has a lot more on their plate to focus in then any other company. The reason why there is no usb port on there iPad is because a usb is almost as thin as an iPad fitting it in just wouldn't work. Not only that but it would compromise design as well as affect battery usage. I'd personally rather wait for a wireless solution.
Basically, its not a necessary thing, we just want it.
The way Apple works is it used iOS to inspire Android and then observes what people want and try to do. And a lot of stuff comes out, but the ones that stay are what Apple will then focus on to bring back to their own product. of course if you don't want to wait or just can't stand it, then don't ever buy into it.
Its never as simple as it looks. Every decision made has its sacrifices and reasons.

Horrible.

Why doesn't apple just use an add on case like the wikipad? The sole reason I don't like gaming on my iphone is no buttons. I love my ps vita for serious gaming, nothing will replace dedicated game machines.
