    Steelcase Controllers

    • Written by Ernest W from Encino

    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.

    Stopped holding a charge

    • Written by Daniel S

    At first we loved the Steelseries Nimbus. But, after a couple years, it stopped holding a charge. 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.

    no charger. difficult to control pac-man

    • Written by munjean T from Ny

    i bought it for pac-man on 4ktv but pac-man won’t turn corners. plus i refuse to buy a lightning connector the controller prices at 50 dollars should come with it. not happy at all. definitely going back as soon as it stops raining. apple should micro manage what and how things are sold to their customers. this brand would have never gotten 5 dollars from me. my five year old is frustrated and screaming as i type this. perhaps commission sony to make a controller and a few games. apple can definitely kick it up a gear for its customers that prefer them to any other company to supply all their needs. am i asking to much apple.

    Steel S.Nimbus

    • Written by Juraj B from Víska u Jevicka

    the game controller has a problem. control sensitivity is distorted, can not be set to ideal sensitivity. gas and Brake control has no sensitivity at all. I tried it on Real Race 3 ... they are testing it a month and it's a cheap cheap product. I do not recommend buying it.

    Inconsistent across devices

    • Written by STEPHEN F from SUN VALLEY

    Worked great with Apple TV games, however, since March 2018, all the games I used to play now crash on Apple TV so the game controller is collecting dust.

    Unlike the world of MAC's and PC's, the game controller is not a generic input device on an iPad like a keyboard. It only works through it's own app which means it can't be used for most games.

    So the Steel Series worked great, but the IOS on iPad doesn't provide a generic game controller interface. The whole reason an operating system (OS) exists is to provide interfaces to input and output devices.

    The bugs in Apple TV and compatibility between existing Apps and the ever changing IOS make inconsistent. This year the NFL app crashes constantly on Apple TV. Last year it worked perfectly.

    Poor quality control

    • Written by Salvatore C from NORTH LAS VEGAS

    I'm returning this piece of junk. Battery indicators don't work properly, and thing won't even turn on unless its connected to a power source even though it's been charging for hours. Very disappointed with the quality of this product. Played zero hours.

    Joystick breaks easily

    • Written by Steven W from Pembroke Pines

    I bought one of these controllers to play games on my Apple TV. It’s easy to setup and the connectivity is good. However, the left joystick keeps breaking. The first time it happened I went to the Apple store to get a replacement. Then, unbelievably, the replacement unit broke as well. They clearly have a fault. I’ve had PlayStation controls for years and nothing like this has ever happened. The product has a problem that needs to be addressed.

    Not fully compatible

    • Written by Andrew B from Twickenham

    I tried in the Apple store in Kingston UK and controller worked to a point with my game War Robots. Some functions didn’t work so didn’t buy. Apple staff completely useless and I was left to try controller on my own.

    Save your cash

    • Written by Jesse C from Midvale

    Pros: Nice build quality.
    Cons:
    - No Charge Cable
    - Not configurable
    - Buttons don't work

    Purchased for war robots but just not useable.

    Bottom line: Look elsewhere.

    NOT MAC COMPATIBLE

    • Written by Peter G from West Pennant Hills

    I bought this thinking it would work with my Mac Pro (or iMac) as well as Apple TV. Unfortunately not. Its very misleading, even though it had the iOS devices listed on the side of the box it also says it various places that it works with Mac OS including on their site.

    Great controller but only one can be used on Apple TV?

    • Written by Steve T from Bellevue

    We were in the Apple store when they had AG drive playing on one of the systems. Our grandson loved playing the game so we bough a couple of these controllers to play it at home. But only ONE controller will work even though you can play two at the same time. It doesn't make sense, you can only use one of these controllers with the other player stuck with the Apple TV remote. Not sure who is at fault here: Apple? Nimbus? or AG Drive developers?

    No Gyro

    • Written by Jon S from Arlington

    Although a nice controller, this device has no gyro--so its very hard to play racecar games. Shame on you Apple!

    Be Careful

    • Written by Gerald M from Chandler

    This is a nice controller but it is not compatible with a Mac. Works ok with Apple TV but is not a "crossover product" except on a PC. Unfortunately Apple sells games like Oceanhorn on the Mac that are not compatible between the platforms so game controllers fit the theme of being incompatible. Should I pay twice for a game that I probably didn't want anyway? Seriously, I called SteelSeries tech support in India and they claim it works just fine with a Mac.....

    ps. this game needs a controller. Sad choice by Mac to charge customers for a game that is unplayable without a controller.

    Not Competent

    • Written by Amad C from London

    I bought this thinking that I will be able to use all the keys on the controller and I was so disappointed. I bought it today and ups is coming tomorrow to collect it. I used it with walking war robots on iPad Air 2. The controller is well built and I was quite impressed by the weight to it but when it got connected and I started the game, turns out I can use the both joysticks for navigation but to fire or use other features such as the robots special features of carnage, I had to use the on screen buttons so other than two joysticks no other button is useable. They have not integrated well into the software. What's the point of buying an expensive controller and not being able to fully use it. And I did try it with other games as well for example racing games work OK as the require the joysticks but again all the other buttons on controller don't do nothing.

    Confusing

    • Written by gilded A from 4

    Have spent all day to get these to work with new Apple TV and they seem erratic and unreliable (we got two), even some basic instructions would help, it's finding and 'connecting' them but it stops there and we keep having to revert to the Apple TV remote....a pain in the posterior to be honest.
