Wikipad Gamevice to give a real gaming console experience for Android and Windows 8 users
The gadget offer everything you can find on your PS or X-Box controller
Mobile gamers certainly have nothing to complain about as great gaming solutions come one after another so today it’s easy to turn your smartphone into a full gaming console.
So far the only issue has been finding a way to figure out the varying controls of each game; however Wikipad might be on the right track in order to give us the solution. Wikipad has just announced its latest device for mobile gamers, simply called the Gamevice.
The latest device is a detachable controller very similar to any other gaming controller you would find on your console and once placed on your device running Android, it will transform your smartphone into a screen that enables all controls to be moved off screen.
Wikipad has worked really hard in order to make their gadget feel like a real console controller and the team has also added dual analogue sticks, the L1/R1 and L2/R2 analogue buttons as well as the analogue D-pad and the essential four action buttons you can find on your PS or X-Box controller. Basically, the Gamevice feels right as you’re playing your games at home. Unfortunately for iOS users, so far Wikipad has been working mainly on Gamevice variants compatible with devices running Android and Windows 8 , however the team promises that it hasn’t forgotten the other platforms.
It’s just a matter of time for Wikipad to expand and add additional support for its Gamevice device, so stay tuned. According to the report, the starting point will be sometime this year for Android and Windows 8, however there aren’t many details to point at a particular date or a price.
“We value the opinions of our community. We heard from many people who either expressed love for the Wikipad 7” or who already owned an iPad or an Android or Windows 8 mobile device and wanted us to make a controller that worked for them. We are currently working on versions for Windows 8 and Android devices. We have not forgotten other important OS systems and we hope to announce additional support those in the near future,” said Fraser Townley, President of Wikipad, Inc.
