We’re big fans of how Game Pass and Cloud Gaming have found a home on our mobile devices. But much of the appeal has been enhanced by a multitude of controllers. Coming this Fall – for both iOS and Android – will be the Gamevice Flex, as it promises to deliver a seamless transition from console to mobile Cloud gaming.
It was Gamevice who were behind the launch of Razer’s Kishi mobile controller a few years back, but now the industry-leading peripheral innovator is looking to provide gamers with even more choice, as the Gamevice Flex gets set to launch in Fall 2022. It certainly looks like the Kishi too.
Available for both iOS and Android players looking to make the most of gaming on their mobiles, utilising the likes of Game Pass in the process, the Gamevice Flex promises to allow for seamless console gaming with phone case compatibility as they help push the definitive console experience to mobile.
It’ll come to market in the Fall with upgraded features and a new design, allowing it to be compatible with thousands of phone cases, You see, the Gamevice Flex eliminates the risk and inconvenience of having to repeatedly remove your phone case, and that’s all thanks to an adapter kit which enables a customized fit that works for mobile phones with or without a case.
It’s certainly one that should be considered too as with the emergence and steady growth of cloud gaming, the one-platform restrictions of yesteryear are long in the past. It’s the push of Game Pass to the Cloud and mobile which as seen the Gamevice team go about applying more than ten years of experience – and over one million units sold – to develop a controller that brings a console quality gaming experience to mobile devices.
To ensure that it is suitable for the demands of console players, the Flex features updated buttons, Hall effect triggers with longer range, improved ergonomics for extended play, and a 3.5mm headphone jack for good measure.
“Our focus with Gamevice Flex is to deliver a seamless experience by removing all of the barriers that have made cloud gaming on mobile devices a struggle and inconvenience,” states Phillip Hyun, CEO, Gamevice. “With current form fitting mobile controllers, there are two major issues: the need to consistently remove your phone case and, once finally in-game, controls that are not a seamless transition from the console. Utilizing feedback from our community combined with our team’s years of design and manufacturing experience, Gamevice Flex will deliver the best mobile cloud gaming experience as more AAA titles come to the cloud.”
A ‘Designed for Xbox’ product, you’ll find the Gamevice Flex available to pre-order on Android and iOS phones right now, ahead of the official launch later in the Fall of 2022. You’ll get a one month subscription to Xbox Game Pass included.
