    I think using your iPhone/iPod touch would be a great controller for many games on the iPad. Sync 'em via bluetooth... your game stays stationary on your iPad while you can still use the accelerometer and virtual d-pad on your iPhone. I'm sure somebody will be working on it if not already.

    Other nice thing about that is it can be customized per game...

    Good idea, but not so easy to made it (due to some Apple limitation)

    Which Apple limitation would make it difficult? I thought Apple opened up the bluetooth stack to developers in version 3. Just curious ;).

    There are plenty of games for iPhone/Touch that allow for multiplayer over bluetooth, and also some that can communicate data (like bump) Where would the difficulty come in?

    I hope we see some sort of dedicated controller for it.
    And why not we already have a keyboard for it so a controller isn't out of the realm of possibility.Sure touch controls are good enough for some games but they can also be a little bit unresponsive and just clunky to use in others.
    Maybe I'm just dreaming but you never know

    gentlefury, that will be nice and cool having your iphone as your controller for most games on your ipad.
