ThinkGeek Announces iCade 8-Bitty for Retro Gaming on the Go

  • MORE


Everyone loves the iCade, but how many gamers want to lug that hefty iPad accessory around town? ThinkGeek clearly knows that mobility is key, as it just unveiled a much more manageable version of its popular accessory at Toy Fair.

The iCade 8-Bitty offers the same gaming controls as its big brother the iCade, but in a teensy rectangular package that could easily fit into your backpack or purse. You get eight buttons (four face buttons, select, start, and two shoulder buttons) plus a D-pad for navigation. The 8-bitty is powered by two AAA batteries.

Unfortunately, no working prototype was available at the show. ThinkGeek estimates that the 8-Bitty will retail for about $24.99 in Q3.
