Apparently, the joystick just wasn't enough!

Check out the latest addition to the Apple family, the new '80s inspired arcade gaming companion for the iPad - the iCade!

Yes, this is an actual product that you can buy.

According to its description:

Flashback to the glory days of gaming with iCADE! Based on the hit concept posted at ThinkGeek.com, iCADE brings arcade gaming to life by integrating your iPad into an authentic, arcade-style cabinet complete with joystick and buttons! Impress your friends, family and co-workers with iCADE's great-looking retro design, and then challenge them for high-scores on the most entertaining iPad accessory imaginable!

And some of the features include:

* Arcade cabinet with joystick and buttons for iPad gaming
* Authentic, full-sized controls for a genuine arcade experience
* High-quality iPad-cradle specifically designed for a safe, secure fit
* Retro cabinet design that is fun, nostalgic and great-looking

HIGHlarious idea, but we have the feeling that one could probably find an ACTUAL old school arcade game on eBay or Craigslist for a whole lot cheaper than the price of the iPad!

Just saying! LOLz!

What do U think?? Will U buy the iCade??

    This started out as an April Fool's joke on ThinkGeek last year, but they CLAIM they're actually putting it into production.

    "Just saying" …. Am I the only one on the planet who can't stand people using this as a part of their daily vocabulary?

    1) We know you're "just saying" you just said it.
    2) People using this term don't have to or want to invest any amount of critical thinking skills and logic to support their position.

    It's annoying and childish and people need to stop saying it.

    People who use the term would have put it here to end this post….

    Interesting. If it incorporates a whole range of imported games, it would be better than an old arcade find where you'd be limited the one.

    Old School arcade machines cost thousands of dollars so I doubt you could find one cheaper than an iPad
