[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

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.

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
