      You must own this to game on the AppleTV!

      The gaming on the AppleTV was compelling enough for me to upgrade. The remote is fantastic but it isn't ideal for intensive gaming. My first game was Rayman Adv The gaming on the AppleTV was compelling enough for me to upgrade. The remote is fantastic but it isn't ideal for intensive gaming. My first game was Rayman Adventures. It worked possibly with the remote. Once I paired the Nimbus it took the game to a whole new level! I was able to work on mastering the game and not the controls. This is really mandatory for anybody that wants to seriously game with the new AppleTV. It brings the console experience to Apple!

      Fantastic/Beautiful Pro Gaming Controller!

      Received the controller in the mail today and was pleasantly surprised. The build quality and design far exceeded my expectations. Incredibly easy to connect an Received the controller in the mail today and was pleasantly surprised. The build quality and design far exceeded my expectations. Incredibly easy to connect and use. Responsive and very comfortable to hold. Probably the best controller I've used. Feels so good. $49 really isn't that expensive for an incredibly designed, expensive feeling, easy to use product. For you guys whining about that lack of a charging cable, remember one came with your apple TV, iPhone, iPad, iPod etc. I'm pretty certain it's not that big of a deal to use that charging cable for a few hours per month to charge your controller. If you are worried because it's not "designed by Apple in California", just buy the thing! It is up to par with apple's design for sure.

      Works well for some games

      I play Marvel Contest of Champions and this controller is listed as compatible. The problem is there is some lag, and the biggest problem is that you can't pres I play Marvel Contest of Champions and this controller is listed as compatible. The problem is there is some lag, and the biggest problem is that you can't press the heavy attack button and hold it down to power up the attack, it just fires immediately. If you are a decent player, it makes the controller useless. Hopefully they will fix this soon.
