The iPad Is Now Officially The Greatest Gaming System Ever!

The iPad has been declared as the greatest gaming machine ever — thanks to the iCade. It’s an impressive set of hardware and software for the iPad that will enable you to play your favorite old-school arcade games.

When you purchase the iCade — courtesy of the folks over at ThinkGeek — you’ll receive a hardware iPad arcade cabinet that allows you to slide your iPad in to turn your iPad into an arcade-like screen, and the iPad slides into a 30-pin connector that allows the hardware to control the iPad with the classic  joystick and big red buttons.

Following that, you’ll then launch the iCade App, a free iPad application, that will enable you to play hundreds of classics. This application is an emulator, so you’ll need to acquire these games online (which may or may not be legal where you live), but who cares!

If you have the opportunity to get your Donkey Kong on, you do it — no questions asked!

Buy it now!

If only it were true…
