SteelSeries, a leader in gaming peripherals, have announced that their full-sized console-style gaming controller designed iOS devices, the Stratus XL, is now available in Apple Retail Stores. Thanks to the Stratus and Stratus XL gamers can have a console-style gaming experience on iOS devices.
Released earlier this year, the SteelSeries Stratus was one of the first wireless controllers to come to market for gaming on iOS devices. With the introduction of the Stratus XL, gamers have the option to play games with a wireless controller that is small and portable or one that is full-sized. The Stratus XL mimics the familiar layout of console controllers and features a pressure-sensitive directional pad (D-pad), four pressure-sensitive action buttons and a total of four shoulder buttons, including two pressure-sensitive top shoulder buttons and two analog bottom trigger buttons. In addition to dual analog sticks, the Stratus XL includes a dedicated pairing button to connect to iOS devices via Bluetooth.
For gamers who are looking for that full-sized controller experience on their iPhone or iPad, the Stratus XL is compatible with hundreds of titles including like the new FIFA 15 Ultimate Team as well as Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Limbo, Transworld Endless Skater, Crimsonland HD, Wayward Souls, Minecraft, Oceanhorn and more.
For those who don’t have an Apple Retail Store near them, the SteelSeries Stratus XL is available online for $69.95.
