Forget Xbox One and PS4 - Apple's iOS 7 gamepad API could be the real game changer

E3 is drawing to a close, but rather than being all sewn up by Microsoft's Xbox One, Sony's PlayStation 4 or Nintendo's Wii U, it's Apple who've just made the real game-changing gaming announcement. iOS 7 for iPhone and iPad is set to introduce an official controller API, opening the floodgates for hardcore gaming on iOS devices.

I figure Apple wouldn't be too long behind Google, who done this with Android 3.0.

This won't be a game changer. Mainly because majority of the best selling iOS games are better with touch controls than a dedicated controller. People rather play games like Angry Bird and Temple Run with their hands than a controller.

I could see games like Dead Trigger, Infinity Blade, Shadowgun, and some of those Gameloft and EA games utilizing this but everything else not so much.

Uhhh, why would this be a game changer? They're still mobile games... They're not going to compete with PS4/X1 level stuff.

Probably a Cell phone/Tablet gaming changer . Mobile and console gaming are not in the same league

That gamepad looks like it was made for a 5-year-old. This "could be the real game changer?" You have got to be kidding?!
