PowerSkin Gaming Skin for iOS announced
The iOS operating system from Apple has certainly done a whole lot to promote smartphones as a viable gaming platform – you see Nintendo and Sony executives pulling long faces, knowing that casual games for the iPhone and iPod touch have certainly cannibalized sales of the PSP and Nintendo 3DS to a certain degree, no matter how small or little it might be perceived. Well, one thing about the iPhone as a portable gaming device of your choice though – it will definitely drain the battery far more than normal, turning it into an extremely abysmal figure where battery life is concerned. This is where PowerSkin brings their iPhone case expertise to the forefront – with the introduction of the Gaming Skin for iOS.
This protective cover and permanent power supply for iOS devices was specially designed to enhance the gaming experience, offering built-in-stereo speakers as well as rumbling vibrations in order to deliver a far more immersive playing experience than ever before. We’re also glad to say that the Gaming Skin for iOS is not only compatible with the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, it will also play nice with the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Gen iPod touch; in addition to the older iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G.
As we all know, whenever we game, some of us tend to end up with sweaty palms, making the device in our hands slippery to hold. The Gaming Skin eliminates that possibility, since it was specially designed to improve one’s grip whenever you game, not to mention offering a certain degree of protection against nicks and short drops. Gaming time and/or video playback is also extended by another 10 hours at best, thanks to its power capacity of 2050 mAh. You can also charge the Gaming Skin and iOS device simultaneously through connecting them into a notebook or wall charger. The Gaming Skin for iOS will retail for $99.99 if you are interested. Which is your primary mobile gaming device of choice, and why? Do you think that more and more people will veer towards casual gaming, instead of relying on the old school heavyweights like consoles from Nintendo and Sony?
