      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.

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.

      Ask questions before purchase.

      I don't think this controller is worth $50. I use this for Trials Frontier and Rayman Adventures on Apple TV. The controllers feel well built and fit nicely in I don't think this controller is worth $50. I use this for Trials Frontier and Rayman Adventures on Apple TV. The controllers feel well built and fit nicely in my hands. Not long after purchase the R1 button became unresponsive. I contacted Steel Series and they advised to download their app for iOS to update the controllers. It improved the problem occasionally but didn't resolve it. I would not purchase again.

      Steelcase Controllers

      I bought two of these thinking that my kids could play Minecraft at the same time. NOT! I could not get the two paired to work at the same time. They just will I bought two of these thinking that my kids could play Minecraft at the same time. NOT! I could not get the two paired to work at the same time. They just will not work together. I am an IT specialist and I couldn't get them to work. It seems the Apple tv sees both of them but only one at a time works. So my kids frustrated and I am frustrated and now the devices sit in the tv storage table collecting dusk.

You can plug it in and the lights all light up like it is charging, but after several hours of being plugged in, when you unplug it the controller is dead like you never plugged it in. I took it back to the Apple Store and they said they could not run a diagnostic on it because it was not their product. It is impossible to contact anyone at Steelseries, so we either have to buy another one, or we are just out of the $50.
