This is an April Fool

"Enter the iCade iPad Arcade Cabinet! To use the iCade, gently slide the iPad into the docking cradle. The docking cradle uses a standard 30 pin connector to link the iPad to the professional-grade arcade controls. Once the iPad is in place, launch the iCade App (available free in the App Store April 3rd) and it's game on!"

They're clearly "joking", the bastards. But seriously, though – how hard would it be for some enterprising genius to make this real? Come ON!

  1. Especially since you can get them for the PSP

  2. April Fool? Fool not to make it Says:

    That's a bloody good idea. They'd be on to a winner there. At least the oversized iphone/ipod would be more useful. It'd have to have the nice and sturdy arcade style stick and buttons too. Surely someone can make this a reality? Make the cabinet out of wood or something and it'll feel substantial. They can sell games designed to work with it through their Apple Store, various cabinet forms or styles (with different artwork and controllers), etc.
    If I had the money I'd have already started looking into this. It's got to be worth while.
