iPod touch game accessoriesToday is the day when Apple will release the iPhone OS 3.0 upgrade, and on their iPod touch upgrade page they mention gaming accessories as being a new feature/option of the upgrade. Will the iPod touch (and by extension iPhone) finally be getting enough buttons for serious gaming?

There really are no other details quite yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we start seeing controller attachments for the iPhone and iPod touch. Who knows, you might finally get that physical keyboard you think you so desperately need.

    Sounds good, but the controls have to be of high quality. The controls can’t just be an after thought. I doubt it will include a joystick (nub) like the PSP. Also, its graphics still fall far behind the PSP. The quality of programming or the limits of the ipod touch/iphone’s hardware increases day by day and they will overcome on this fact as they did good enough development in <a href="iphone" rel="nofollow">http://www.wirelessphonegallery.com/apple.aspx">iphone accessories.
