While arcades are a thing of the past, games like Asteroids and Centipede are still fun to play. Classic games have made a strong comeback thanks to handheld devices like the iPad. Of course, playing old arcade games on a touch screen just isn’t the same as it was with joystick. But before you go looking for an old Missile Command arcade machine on eBay, you might want to try out the latest accessory from Atari. The Atari Arcade Duo Powered Joystick turns your iPad into a mini arcade machine—except you don’t have to insert coins to continue. DOPE!
