Though Apple isn't making its own traditional controller for the new Apple TV, it is promoting a new controller from SteelSeries on its Apple TV product page and, come October, selling it in Apple Stores, both online and retail.
The Nimbus is a new wireless Bluetooth gaming controller built for the Apple TV that will launch alongside the platform for $49.95. Compared to some other MFi (Made for iDevice) controllers, not to mention the new-gen offerings from Microsoft and Sony, that's a rather reasonable asking price.
The Nimbus' marquee features are:
- Rechargeable battery with 40+ hours of life for extended play
- Lightning connector for rapid charging
- Menu button for instant navigation
- Pressure sensitive buttons for precise control
