ThinkGeek’s iCade may look decisively a winner when it comes to emulating the old school arcade machine but it might be a little too cumbersome to some user. if you are apprehensive about the hulking cabinet, then you might want to wait out for the Atari Arcade-Duo Powered Joystick – something which you can bring with you on-the-go. inline with the imminent launch of this arcade-style joystick for iPad, Atari has updated their Atari’s Greatest Hits iOS app to support this game controller. from the look of it, this joystick might be receiving Bluetooth support instead of the usual 30-pin connector, and the slot merely acts as a stand to prop up the iPad. if that’s the case, it will means that this joystick will be able to support both portrait and landscape orientations. however, details are still scant at this moment and there’s no word on its pricing and availability.
