By - September 2015

nimbusYou probably heard that the new Apple TV coming out in October can finally play games and will have its own App Store. You probably also heard that the new Apple TV has a fancy new remote that integrates touch, voice, and motion controls. That might be fine and all for casual games, but real gamers know that hardcore gaming on a TV requires a real game controller and Steelseries will be the first to deliver with their new Steelseries Nimbus, the first gamepad controller designed for the Apple TV. Not only that, it will also work on all your other iOS based devices such as your iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

Key Features:

  • Lightning connector
  • Rechargeable 40+ hour battery life 
  • Lithium ion rechargable batteries
  • Pressure-sensitive buttons

The new Steelseries Nimbus controller will be available in October alongside the new Apple TV with a price tag around $49.99.
