Nintendo, Sony may have to watch out for incoming iOS controllers

There's no question that smartphones like the iPhone and tablets like the iPad have plenty of horsepower to run beautiful games. Titles like Real Racing 3 and Infinity Blade III clearly showcase what developers are capable of delivering to iOS devices.
However, most gamers have thumbed their noses at smartphones and tablets as a "true" gaming platform due to restrictive touchscreen controls. Thanks to Apple's "Made for iPhone" initiative, iOS gamers will now be able to lay their fingers on real buttons and analog sticks to perform "head shots" on enemies or clip an apex in race car around Laguna Seca.
Logitech has posted a teaser image on its Facebook page that confirms that it is working on an iOS game controller:

GameCase, on the other hand, has gone full throttle ahead by posting a trailer of its upcoming game controller:

Apple’s iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c will officially launch tomorrow, so we're likely to start hearing more about these controllers shortly.

And pretty soon we will all start hanging around with a backpack filled with accessories for the phone or tablet. I know i already do, and it sucks. Cover, charger, extra charger, external battery, OTG cable, card&usb reader, longer charger cable, different cover, 360ยบ cover, white cover, pink cover, shorter cable... Now a "joypad"! huhuhuhu What about a Double Force Feedback Wheel with pedals? Thought it was all mobile ehehehehh.
