A couple of months ago we told you about a new Bluetooth controller from Power A called the MOGA. They said it would be available in time for the holidays and they delivered. They just announced that it will be in stores on October 21st for a price of $49.99. This is the first full featured controller to become available for mobile devices. The controller features dual analog sticks, two shoulder buttons, four action buttons, and standardized start and select buttons. The best part is that it has a holder for your device to make gaming truly on-the-go.
They are offering the MOGA SDK for developers so they can provide that console-gaming experience for their users. To make it easier for users to find games, they are offering the MOGA Pivot App, which will make it easier for users to browse all the enhanced games. A number of top developers are already committed to publishing games that are compatible with the MOGA. They include Gameloft, Atari, Namco Bandai, Sega, Remedy Entertainment and more. Gameloft’s The Dark Knight Rises HD, Asphalt 7: Heat HD and Dungeon Hunter 3 as well as Remedy’s Death Rally already have support and are compatible with the MOGA.
“Gamers are already walking around with phones with exceptional screens and fast chips,” said Eric Bensussen, president of PowerA. “For under $50, they can clip that phone into the MOGA controller and finally get console quality gaming experiences anywhere.”
The MOGA Mobile Gaming System will come with the free downloadable MOGA PivotTM App and a soft case. Also as a limited time offer, you will get two free games: Sonic CDTM and PAC-MAN by Namco.
