Last week we told you about MOGA’s new controllers featuring the ability to charge your phone while you are getting your game on. Turns out the MOGA Power Series Pro model will feature rumble tactile effects from the Immersion Corporation. I got a chance to spend some time with Immersion at CES 2012 and they gave us a hands on demo of some pretty cool stuff. If you remember, their haptic technology was featured in the Pantech Element.
“With this announcement, the MOGA Power Series Pro will be the first mobile game controller to feature rumble,” explains Eric Bensussen, President and Co-Founder of PowerA. “Working with world-class partners like Immersion is one of the ways MOGA maintains its leadership position in the mobile game controller industry. The response to our existing MOGA controllers has been fantastic, and we believe the next step is to enable developers to incorporate tactile effects, bringing immersive rumble feedback to mobile games. We’re pleased to be working with Immersion to bring that capability to developers creating MOGA Enhanced games.”
Immersion’s tactile feedback SDK for MOGA is now available to select developers. Full presser after the break.
