STEELSERIES LAUNCHES GAME DEVELOPER PROGRAM AT GDC

Enter to Win an iPad Air™ & Stratus Controller Bundle at the SteelSeries Booth #1824

SAN FRANCISCO – March 19, 2014 – The SteelSeries Stratus Wireless Controller is the first and only MFi-certified, Bluetooth controller designed to transform gaming on the iPad® into a console-style experience. While some games are meant for touchscreen only, there are many game titles available and coming to the market that when controller support is enabled, a player’s accuracy and time spent playing are significantly increased. The experience shifts from what we know as “mobile gaming” to immersive gaming on a new platform. The Stratus has a compact design for easy portability and features a familiar layout with the a directional pad (D-pad), 4 pressure-sensitive action buttons and 4 pressure-sensitive shoulder buttons, in addition to dual analog sticks, and a dedicated pairing button to connect to iOS devices.
