Beyond the Box unleashes this pocket gaming beast

THANKS to the smartphone trail blazed by the iPhone, we no longer have to lug around dedicated gadgets such as mp3 players, GPS units, or even calculators. Dedicated handheld gaming devices, however, have been holding out a bit longer. While the iPhone has plenty of power under the hood to run most moderngames, tapping and swiping on a glass screen just doesn’t compare to the feel and response of tactile buttons. That’s why for serious handheld gaming, a standalonedevice is a must. Or is it?

That is the hurdle that Beyond the Box is addressing with the local release of its newest product. Aptly called the Gamevice, it’s an Apple certified game controller that unlocks the iPhone’s true potential for hardcore gaming. 

Like modern console controllers, it has a D-pad, dual analog joysticks, and a combination of 8 action buttons and triggers for total gaming control. But unlike wireless bluetoothcontrollers, Gamevice connects via lightning port to give you unmatched latency. It also fits snugly around your Apple device, transforming it into a powerful handheld gaming console.

For the ultimate in portability, there’s a Gamevice model made just for the iPhone in your hand. But if you fancy a larger display, there’s a Gamevice model that takes advantage of the bigger screens on the iPad mini, iPad Air, and even the powerhouse iPad Pro. All Gamevice models are certified by Apple, so expect no less than seamless compatibility.

While Gamevice is leaps ahead of other controllers when it comes to ergonomics, that’s just half of what’s in the package. Gamevice also comes with a library of over 900 games (and counting) through Gamevice Live, which gives you access to the hottest Gamevice-optimized titles online. With games like Assassin’s Creed, NBA 2K17, Call of Duty, FIFA, Riptide GP, Rayman Classic, and more, there’s plenty of action for just about every genre you’re into.

All Gamevice models retail for P5,490, and are available at Beyond The Box—the country’s authority on premium gadgets and accessories. For more information, please visit or LIKE Beyond the Box on Facebook and FOLLOW @beyondtheboxph on Instagram.
