Gaming on phone has always been difficult due to the touch controls inconvenience. Wikipad has decided to solve that problem with Gamevice which will facilitate gaming on Android and Windows based mobile devices.
The controller from Wikipad is very similar to the one you find on traditional consoles. You just have to place your Gamevice onto the pad & it will transform the phone into just a screen, which allows you to take the controls off the screen.
To get the feel like an actual game controller, Gamevice features dual analog sticks, L1/R1 and L2/R2 buttons, an analogue d-pad, and four analogue action buttons.
Wikipad president Fraser Townley said:
The Gamevice is currently in development for the Android & Windows 8 devices.” He also said in his statement “We have not forgotten other OS systems and we hope to announce additional support for them in the near future.
They have also announced a new update for Wikipad 7 gaming tablet, which brings Android 4.2 Jelly Bean to play new games from Wild Tangent Games.
Although the device looks cool enough but it’s not really a new concept. So, we will have to wait and see how it handles its competition in the market. Your thoughts?
