I still don't know why Apple won't approve any physical game pad for the idevices. As you can see, the iPad has an enormous potential for console-like experience, even more now with the amazing Retina display or even when using the Apple TV or the HDMI cable to put the images on a Full HD TV, but it is held back by the limitation of having the iPad and its touch screen as the only controller. Even with such a big screen, friends could use multiple controllers to play the games or having more authentic gaming experiences on single player modes. Apple is not seeing they are preventing real gamers to take the system seriously. Hope the new developers are trying to put some sense into apple's head; I can only wonder to play on the iPad with a physical controller which is not some arcade cabinet or less than perfect for the current gaming needs. A real controller, like the Xbox's or the PS3's. They are just trying to pull it off, but no matter how big the effort, without some real controllers, gaming on the iPad and iPhone will always be shallow, even with big hits like Infinity Blade and Real Racing.

A nice idea but not so practical if it's going to quickly drain the already strained iPhone battery. Is anyone working on improving the iPhone battery technology? If it wasn't for my New Trent battery pack, my iPhone 4 would barely last half a working day of standard usage with no gaming.

Improving battery technology needs to be prioritised above all else; the best accessory in the world is worth precisely zilch if there's no power.
