    Hi guys

    Apart from purchasing something like the tactile game controller shown on ipad arena, is there any way to connect a standard USB games controller to the iPad for easier game playing (such as Call Of Duty: Nazi Zombies)?

    thanks in advance

    Short answer: No
    long answer: Maybe, if the camera connection kit can be made to make it work.

    Wait and grab one of the new mini joysticks that are coming out soon, as I doubt the USB connection would work. Especially as the voltage has been reduced following the OS upgrade.
