With mobile gaming on the rise, it makes perfect sense that consumers are going to want to accelerate their gaming expertise by leaving the fiddly small-screen behind in favor of a dedicated gaming controller targeted toward mobile devices.

With the release and continued success of the Apple TV 4, which comes with its own App Store and therefore is ushering in a new era of mobile gaming, there’s now an even bigger onus on picking the right gaming controller for your gaming habits. For those that are looking, the SteelSeries Nimbus Wireless is one of the best controllers out there, and to add to that fact, it is now available at a 30% discount.

Taking advantage of that deal will get you a gorgeous looking Apple MFi-certified SteelSeries Nimbus Wireless gaming controller with bluetooth integration. The hardware has been specifically built with Apple’s devices in mind, and therefore offers compatibility with the iPhone, iPad, the iPod touch, Mac and of course, the increasingly popular fourth-generation Apple TV.

In addition to taking the physical form of a familiar-looking gaming device, the SteelSeries Nimbus also introduces a few additional little pieces of magic that makes gaming a pleasure on those devices. Feature-wise, here’s what your gorgeous new SteelSeries Nimbus Wireless gaming controller will come bundled with:

Pressure-sensitive buttons for precise gaming controls.

One of the greatest things about the Nimbus Wireless is that the designers and manufacturers have gone into the development of this product with the gamer and the end-goal in mind. There’s no attempt whatsoever to try and be innovative in terms of design by deviating away from accepted gaming controller design principles. Everything is where you expect it to be on the controller. It does everything you would expect a gaming controller to do, and it feels like it has been extremely well engineered and manufactured. Holding and interacting with the hardware just screams a premium feel.
