Well, that was fast. Not an hour ago we reported on a possible rumor that Apple was working on a physical gamepad for iOS devices. That has already been shot down. Jim Dalrymple of The Loop chimed in with a simple and curt, “Nope.” Really, that’s it. I mean it has a quote of “Long rumoured – and hoped for – GDC 2013 has finally provided confirmation that Apple will release its own dedicated game controller” from Pocketgamer, the original source of the gamepad rumors, however other than that it is the simple one word response. I guess that killed that rumor, and it killed it quickly. He has continually been accurate on Apple related things like this, so you can take his word (literally, single word) on this with some confidence.
What do you think? Were you excited? Sad to see the rumors die so fast? Let us know in the comments, or tweet me @TiP_Kyle.
