Apple Files For A New Gaming Accessory Patent

Looks like Apple intends to get a little more serious about gaming, as the fruity company has submitted a patent on a device that’s related to gaming. From the patent it’s known that the device can be used as an external gaming device and might have several accessories. Variations of said accessory might include a camera, vibration add-on, microphone, and an accelerometer. The design also shows an accessory that will give a portable touchscreen device some external gaming controls, much like those gamepad accessories that show up from time to time for your iPhone. It’ll be interesting to see if Apple wants to take on long time gaming giants such as Nintento and Sony in the gaming scene. Do you think Apple will want to come up with a dedicated gaming machine, or turn it’s iPhone/iPad into one?
