iOS 7 has gotten plenty of attention, mostly the tossing out of skeuomorphism, in favor of a new flat design, plus its numerous other bells and whistles. Except for one.

Apple's updated mobile OS also has brand new hooks in place for third party controller support. There's been a few on the market already, but the underlying frameworks (and therefore the controllers themselves), has never been stellar.

But all that is set to change, and it would appear that the GameCase is the first one out of the game. The first of many, one is willing to wager.

At the end of July, Microsoft announced some pretty significant changes to its publishing policies. With the new ID@Xbox program, indie developers will be able, in theory, to create, publish, and sell their games on the Xbox Live Marketplace with few restrictions.

The news was met with much joy and the popping of champagne corks (I'm assuming), but don't expect it to bear fruit any time soon -- the first ID@Xbox games probably won't be out until next year.
