ThinkGeek and Ataris iCade Retro iPad Arcade

first_imgIf you don’t already own an iPad, you have about three months to get one before the iCade is available to retro-gaming nerds everywhere. Let’s face it, the old-school arcade games are admittedly cool looking, but they’re heavy, and extremely expensive. Thanks to the good people at ThinkGeek, you can pretend you’re living the dream.ThinkGeek teamed up with ION and Atari to create the iCade. ION is helping in creating the arcade-style body that connects the iPad via Bluetooth. Atari will be offering a huge suite of its classic arcade games, like Asteroids. Gearlog got some hands-on time with a prototype at ces. We learned that the buttons were far from arcade quality, but what do you expect for a product that was originally an April Fool’s Day product from ThinkGeek? The iCade is estimated to be available April 15 at ThinkGeek for $99.99. You can sign up to be e-mailed when the product is ready to purchase. Game on!last_img
