Gaming peripherals maker SteelSeries has announced the late October release of the Nimbus wireless controller for use with Apple’s new Apple TV set top streaming and gaming box.
The Nimbus Wireless Gamepad Controller includes the following features:
- Rechargeable battery with 40+ hours of life for extended play
- Lightning connector for rapid charging
- Menu button for instant navigation
- Pressure sensitive buttons for precise control
As well as the Apple TV, the Nimbus will also be compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, as well as the Mac. This will allow avid gamers to save a bit of cash, since they’ll need only one controller to play games on all of their Apple devices.
“Nimbus is the result of a lengthy and rigorous R&D effort,” said Craig Olson, President of SteelSeries Worldwide Mobile. “Our engineers and designers have worked tirelessly to create a wireless gaming controller worthy of the new Apple TV. Nimbus will allow consumers around the world to play amazing games on Apple TV, iPhone, iPad, and Mac with an unprecedented level of performance.”
Pricing & Availability
The SteelSeries Nimbus Gaming Controller will be available on apple.com and in Apple Stores around the globe in late October with a $49.95 / €59.95 MSRP. Visit the SteelSeries website for more information about the controller and sign-up to be contacted once it’s available.
