The new game-tastic Apple TV already has its first wireless gamepad: the SteelSeries Nimbus.

The Nimbus also packs a rechargeable battery offering over 40 hours of charge, a lightning connector, and pressure-sensitive trigger and bumper buttons for maximum precision.

The SteelSeries Nimbus will retail for US$49.95 (approx. £32.50, AUD $71.50) when it launches in late October.
