ThinkGeek changed the way you played iPad apps such as Ataris Greatest Hits with the iCade, an arcade cabinet styled controller. Well coming soon is the iCade 8-Bitty. It is a little controller that connects to your iDevice via bluetooth giving you a new way to play your iCade enabled games. The controller look much like a NES controller, it has a d-pad, 4 face buttons, and 2 shoulder buttons, as well as start and select.

Any games that are currently compatible with the iCade will be compatible with the 8-Bitty, just connect it and you'll be on your way to playing your favorite games with classic tactile feedback. No word on when these will be released but keep your eyes glued to ThinkGeek to know right away. They'll be significantly cheaper than the iCade at only $25, note they will need 2 AAA batteries which will not be included.

Looks pretty cool, don't see why I'd do hardcore enough emulating for a controller like that on an iPod, but still a nice pretty cool.

since it's bluetooth it would work on a computer too right? Or would it not since it's made for iDevices?

I'm not sure, but I think the computer would need drivers specifically for it.

probably, from what I understand it does use bluetooth but apps need the right code to understand the buttons and all.
