During Apple's press event in San Francisco, the company revealed more information on the gaming features of the new Apple TV set-top box. It will support third-party MFi-based game controllers, such as the SteelSeries Nimbus, which was also revealed for the first time alongside the new Apple TV.
SteelSeries showed off the new Nimbus controller on its Twitter page, with the marketing claim that it will be " the only way to game on the new Apple TV." An image of the controller was also posted on Apple's site as well. Details on the controller, including a specific release date or price, have yet to be revealed. The SteelSeries Nimbus should also allow for controlling games on an iPhone or iPad as well.
Of course, there are a number of MFi-based controllers that are already available, and they should also be compatible with the new Apple TV.
