iCade, the famous mini-arcade system for the iPad, which comes completely with your typical arcade setup of joystick and big red buttons, has decided that it's time to lose its beer-belly and find new life in a slimmer, Jaredized body (the Subway Challenge guy). Ion, the company responsible for the iCade, has announced two versions of the iCade at CES.

First, Ion has announced The iCade Core, a slimmed down version of the original iCade that has been on the market for the last year. The iCade Core is essentially a dock for your iPad, but this years twist is that it doesn't actually look like your traditional arcade box, making it possible to play games in both landscape and portrait mode, which until now wasn't possible with the current iteration of the iCade.

The second product announced by Ion is a mobile version of the iCade, but instead of being built for the iPad and a tablet-top setting, the iCade Mobile will attach to an iPod Touch or iPhone, essentially turning your mobile iOS device into a Sony PSP-like gaming system.

There's no pricing or shipping date on the iCade Core, it will be released this year. Contrarily, The iCade Mobile will be released during the second quarter of this year and cost you $100.00.

Something tells us that the WiiU is looking for someone to change its diaper.
