    I am purchasing an iPad 2 in the near future, and was wondering if there was a Xbox 360-like controller, for gaming? I know that there is Bluetooth capability in the new iPad 2, but is it doable to connect some sort of Xbox 360-esque controller to the iPad via Bluetooth or some related manner? Thanks!

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    I am not aware of any gaming controllers for the iPad, but maybe other members will know of something that's out there. The interface capability of the iPad is fairly limited and there's no way of 'intercepting' the touch screen interface that a gaming controller would need to have access to.

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad


    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.

    Apple - Support - Manuals

    It’s free too.

    If you have an iPod touch, try the controller app that let's you connect your iPod to the iPad to use as a controller

    Like what Mplough was talking about, with the external, attaching controls. However, is there a way to connect a Xbox 360/Bluetooth/PS3 controller via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth? Is it even doable without jailbreaking?
