Steel Series Nimbus Bluetooth Controller Coming for New Apple TV

Posted by at 5:26 pm on September 9, 2015

The today-announced Apple TV can use more than just the controller it ships with. Featured alongside the Apple TV on Apple’s web page is the Steel Series  Nimbus, a Bluetooth controller specifically designed with Apple’s iOS ecosystem in mind, and chargeable with Apple’s Lightning connector.

The controller is a conventionally designed unit, with four face buttons, two analog sticks, a directional pad, and four triggers. A central menu button controls the Apple TV, and the two analog sticks have a pushbutton as well. The controller swaps the locations of the directional pad and the left analog stick as compared to the Xbox controller in a orientation similar to that of the PlayStation’s controller.

As opposed to most MFi controllers, there is no phone clip, or any other method to attach a tablet or phone. It is compatible with any system that can utilize a Bluetooth game controller, despite the lack of connection points.

The controller is not yet for sale, but is listed on the Steel Series website as a $50 controller.
