Our latest poll – “What’s the maximum price you’d pay for an iPhone 5/5s/iPod touch 5G-only game controller?” – has now ended. With iOS 7 adding official support for iPhone and iPod game controllers, we asked our readers to let us know what they would consider to be a fair price for such an accessory, assuming it worked only with the iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, and fifth-generation iPod touch.

The majority of responses—fifty-one percent—indicated that they had no interest at all in an iOS Game Controller. Of the remaining responses, most were closely split between “under $30” at twenty-one percent and “$30 - $50” at nineteen percent. Only five percent of respondents indicated that they would consider a game controller in the $51-$70 range, and only four percent would consider one in the $71 - $100 range.
