Gamevice's Mobile Controller Now Works For iPhone X And Star Wars Droids

Gamevice announced today that its mobile controllers will now provide full support for iPhone X, iPhone 8, and Sphero's app-enabled Star Wars droids. Gamevice is also lowering the price of the GV 157 to $79.95 for the holiday season.

The controllers come in two pieces and, much like the Nintendo Switch's joycons, attach to either side of your mobile device. The GV 157 is compatible with over 1,000 games on the iPhone, including NBA 2K18, Minecraft, and the Talos Principle. Gamevice's compatibility with Sphero's droids, including R2-D2, BB-8, and the new BB-9E that debuts in The Last Jedi, should also provide more precision for Star Wars fans passionate enough to purchase  drones.

Our Take
With its larger display and surprising amount of console or PC quality games, the iPhone X seems like a pretty good device to invest in mobile gaming. It's hard not to compare it to the Switch's joycons, but the symmetrical joystick orientation might work for those who have been complaining about the Switch's offset design.
