iCade core, iCade Mobile, and iCade Jr. expand arcade experience for iPhone, iPad

iCade by Ion, which made the Bluetooth arcade cabinet case for iPad a reality last year, has come back with three new versions for CES 2012, the iCade Core, iCade Mobile, and iCade Jr.

  • iCade Core strips away the cabinet to give you just the controls -- joystick and buttons -- you need to get your iPad game on.
  • iCade Mobile turns your iPhone or iPod touch into a full PSP-style handheld gaming console fit for any button masher
  • iCade Jr. brings the traditional iCade look and feel -- only smaller and cuter -- to the iPhone and iPod touch.

Coming this spring, for $89, $79, and $49 respectively.

I have an iCade core and it is a great product and really works well. The games for it are ever expanding (not just Atari) and if you were fortunate enough to get iMame before it was removed you are set forever. I definitely recommend it to everybody.

ArcAngel says:

Ooops. I meant normal iCade cabinet not core.

They should keep selling the original, full case too, for those that want an authentic retro experience.

This might not be the best place to inquire about this, but I am trying to find a pest control business in the pittsburgh region and have no way to find out who's the best. I uncovered this business which is actually close to me and wanted to see if any person has any critiques on them. Spectrum Pest Control, 3058 West Liberty Avenue, Dormont, PA 15216 - (412) 446-2802

This might not be the best place to request this, but I'm trying to find a pest management business within the pittsburgh region and have no method to find out who is the very best. I located this business which is really close to me and wanted to see if anybody has any evaluations on them. Spectrum Pest Control, 3058 West Liberty Avenue, Dormont, PA 15216 - (412) 446-2802
