[Apple] SteelSeries Nimbus Wireless Controller + Minecraft Apple TV Edition for $54.95

Apple has a pretty good deal right now for both a Nimbus Wireless Controller and Minecraft: Apple TV Edition (download code) for $54.95. The controller alone goes for $64.95 (and the game alone is $27.99 on itunes). Might be worth it just for the controller if you're looking for one for iOS gaming with $10 savings

Controller + Minecraft (Apple TV):

There's no support for the switch with this controller. It only works for Apple devices

word. i've had this controller for 2 years and, while its pretty good, only works with apple products. Tried it on my shield and it gave me the big f u.

give lots of head for sick knee fadez, give lots of lap dances for ca$h wallet fades. Always pop that leg when kissing for dope honey combs, knee lots of mans in the crotch for killer whiskers, low ride like an og for them stacks. And traintracks? Only achievable by a legend in the denim game

Are you referring to the ability to use Xbox 360/One/PS3/4 controllers via a FastSnail or Mayflash adapter?

It's not impossible that it would work, but based on some google-fu, references to issues with not all buttons working on things like RetroPi would indicate that it would be a risky purchase, as it wouldn't be fully supported.

Is there many games on Apple TV that requires the controller?

Apple needs controllers to be certified so it's unlike Android where anything just works. Sigh.. I don't want to throw down $50 for a locked down controller.

I was naively hoping it would simply pair with the Switch Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Tightly-closed Eyes
