The SteelSeries Stratus will work with all iOS 7 or later devices, which include the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, and is equipped with 4 pressure sensitive face buttons, 4 pressure sensitive shoulder buttons and supports Bluetooth 2.1 and comes with a 10hr rechargeable battery.
Bruce Hawver, SteelSeries CEO explains a little more about the reception the SteelSeries Stratus wireless iOS game controller has received since it was unveiled during CES 2014 at the beginning of the is year.
“The media and consumer reaction to the announcement of the Stratus Controller at CES really demonstrated the power behind this product, and the new category of gaming we can enable by working together with Apple,”
“More than ever, we see the power of this platform and we want to make every effort to make it accessible to as many consumers as possible. We have therefore worked closely with our retail partners and suppliers with the objective of lowering the retail price target without changing any of the terrific features of this product.”
