Following in the footsteps of the Fling mini, ThinkGeek has created a smaller version of their JOYSTICK-IT Arcade Stick that makes it more practical for use with the iPhone, or other smartphones. If you recall, we reviewed the original version of the JOYSTICK-IT back in March, and while we felt it could technically be used with touchscreen devices smaller than a tablet, the overall size of the stick would make that impractical. But this new version of the JOYSTICK-IT looks to be about the perfect size for smartphone gaming, as long as your game of choice uses an onscreen 4-way directional pad. The original version of the JOYSTICK-IT is still available for $24.99, while this new, smaller version runs a bit cheaper at $17.99.
