f12f icade jr
ThinkGeek has discounted the iCade Jr. Mini Arcade Cabinet for iPhone to only $9.99. That represents 80% off its normal price of $49.99.

The iCade Jr. was originally launched in January 2012 at CES. It represents a smaller iPhone/iPod Touch sized version of the original iPad-sized iCade. Like its big brother, the iCade Jr. connects to your iPhone or iPod Touch using Bluetooth. This model was originally designed to fit the iPhone 4/4S and 4th Generation iPod touch form factors, but is said to work with the iPhone 5 "if you leave the top lid hinged back".

The controller has an arcade stick, four front and rear buttons and works with existing iCade-compatible games.

I guess it's one of these things that you buy it, play with it 30min and then put it somewhere you don't remember. So eventually, it's a waste of $10 ($16 actually, including shipping).

For $10 it might be worth it if you like hardware hacking and just want a tiny Bluetooth joystick for fun projects...

This.

It only works with games that have added iCade support. Most of the ones that have are games you've never heard of and once you've played them, you'll understand WHY they weren't on the radar.

My thoughts as well.

Makes me wonder if they have stopped making it and this price is just to clean out inventory.

Meh. Waste of money.

Poor support for games. Clearly piss poor sales. Most likely a clearance sale to get rid of the remaining inventory before it vanishes.
