You Can Now Play iOS Games with a Wii U Controller

Apple's MFi game controller support in iOS 7 allows third party developers to create external gamepads that support the iPad and iPhone. This should have opened many doors for mobile gaming on Apple devices, but unfortunately, most of the MFi game controllers on the market are too expensive. Not to mention, there are only a few that support both the iPad and iPhone, and most require a Lightning connection for them to work. This is why the jailbreak tweak Controllers for All was such a welcome addition to Cydia.

Controllers for All v.1.2

Controllers for All allows iOS gamers to use console controllers, such as the DualShock 4, to play games on their jailbroken devices. The tweak originally only supported Sony PlayStation controllers, but as promised, it has now been updated with Wii U and iPEGA 9025 support. The tweak works with all iOS 7 devices and is only a $1.99. That is a lot cheaper than shelling out $60 to $100 for a MFi-enabled gamepad from a third party developer.

iPad Tops Holiday Wish Lists Again, Wii U a Close Second

Kids aged 6 to 12 want an iPad for the holidays more than anything else this year. According to a survey conducted by Nielsen Wire, 48% of kids surveyed said they want an iPad, and 39% want a Nintendo Wii U. Apple's iPod touch and iPad mini tied for third with 36% of the vote, and the iPhone beat out other smartphones, gaming consoles and tablets with 33% of children's interest.

2012 Top Holiday Gifts

While the 4th generation iPad and iPad mini are readily available from Apple and other retailers, the Wii U is largely sold out across the U.S.. Holiday shoppers have been turning to third party sellers, and online tracking services such as whohas.it to find a Wii U console. Scott Moffitt, executive vice president of marketing at Nintendo of America, said Nintendo is doing everything they can do to ensure the Wii U will be on store shelves this shopping season. However, some are accusing retail stores of hoarding Wii U consoles for Black Friday sales. Either way, it looks like Apple products will be the much easier gifts to find and buy this year.

New App Helps Holiday Shoppers Locate Hard to Find Items

Online scalpers are already taking advantage of holiday shoppers by offering sold out items such as the Nintendo Wii U and Call of Duty: Black Ops II Care Package for double the price on Amazon and eBay. The new shopping app whohas.it not only helps holiday shoppers avoid paying too much for popular gifts, but it also eases holiday shopping headaches by allowing consumers to easily obtain sold out or pre-release items.
