Atari and Discovery Bay Games just made gaming on the iPad 2 a lot more fun! The Atari Arcade is a dock for your iPad 2 but not just any regular dock, it’s not wireless like most out there, it’s directly connected to your iPad for instant responses to your movements for 1:1 reactions.  Price is $59.99 and it became available yesterday at Target.

The Atari Arcade powered by Duo from Discovery Bay Games joins the growing line of "app-based accessories" designed specifically for the iPad and iPad 2. Boasting a retro design, complete with an analog joystick and four control buttons, the Atari Arcade brings a mobile, arcade-like experience to the "Atari’s Greatest Hits" app, which has amassed over three million downloads to date on the App Store(SM).

To begin using the Atari Arcade, consumers should first download the "Atari’s Greatest Hits" app from the App Store. With the app installed, simply connect the iPad into the Atari Arcade’s dock and then take control playing up to 100 Atari classics including Asteroids®, Centipede® and Missile Command®. Unlike wireless connections, this hard-wired dock provides accurate and speedy response to actions taken with the joystick or control buttons while also powering the Atari Arcade without the need for batteries.

"The Atari Arcade brings an entirely new dimension to our already successful ‘Atari’s Greatest Hits’ app," said Lee Jacobson, SVP of Licensing, Atari Inc. "The Atari Arcade controller delivers a true mobile arcade experience."

"We’ve worked closely with Atari to ensure this controller is optimized to the fullest extent for each game offered in their app," said Craig Olson, CEO, Discovery Bay Games.  "We’ve designed the Atari Arcade so that it delivers a cool-factor for today’s digital gamer that’s both nostalgic and sleek."

The Atari Arcade will be available for $59.99 at Target (October 2, 2011); Apple Stores, Apple.com, and Toys R Us (November 1, 2011).
