As the clock ticks down to Cyber Monday, buyers looking to get a jump on the deals may want to check out some specials Amazon is running on several MOGA gaming devices. The base MOGA is currently listed at $14.99, which is 50% off the normal price of $29.99. The successor to the MOGA, the MOGA Hero Power, is also on sale for $45.91 compared to a normal price of $59.99, just shy of 25% off.

New MOGA Ace Power leaks, but will it fit Android devices?

moga_ace_power

An image of a new portable gaming device from MOGA surfaced today thanks to @evleaks showing a new direction for the form factor the company may be heading down. Unlike previous devices that were similar in style to traditional gaming system controllers with a mobile device mounting to the top side, the new MOGA Ace Power puts the mobile device in the middle with the buttons flanking that. Also noteworthy is the fact that it is coming equipped with an 1800 mAh battery that can be used to recharge a mobile device similar to the rest of the MOGA Power Series controllers.

The downside, if you are not put off by the change in the form factor, may be compatibility with Android devices. The leaked image shows the MOGA Ace Power with an iPhone. Considering how the controller appears to cradle the device, it seems like it will be a challenge to produce the new controller in a way that takes into account all the different Android powered smartphone sizes and shapes.

MOGA Hero Power and Pro Power controllers go live for preorder on Amazon with a November shipping date

MOGA_Family_Android_Controllers

If you’re interested in preordering the new MOGA Power series controllers on Amazon, the pages are officially live to place an order, with one drawback; they won’t be shipping until November 14th. That’s quite a bit later than the October shipping date for the controllers ordered through MOGA’s official shop by about a month. The upside is that you do get Prime shipping if you’re a member, and free shipping is always a plus.

The MOGA Power Hero is the updated version of the Pocket controller. It packs an 1800 mAh batter and refined analog sticks and a d-pad. The Power Pro is a beefier option with a 2200 mAh battery and a controller that rivals console input devices. They’ll run $59.99 and $79.99, respectively, which is par the course for nice controllers on consoles and computers.

Are you interested in shelling out that kind of cash for a controller like this for your device? You can check out the Amazon preorder pages below.

If you typically do a lot of gaming on your Android device, you know how frustrating some control schemes can be on a smaller touch screen. To remedy that, MOGA released their handheld Bluetooth game controllers for Android devices, which bring console-style controls to a portable device. As a follow-up to the original MOGA controllers, the company unveiled a new line of controllers at PAX Prime that bring a unique spin on gaming controllers for phones; namely, the ability to charge your phone while it’s cradled in the controller.

MOGA controllers with Boost technology coming soon, will charge your phone while you play

MOGA_Family_Android_Controllers

PowerA is will introduce two new controllers next week at E3 that sound pretty exciting. They already offer two of the best controllers for Android phones in the MOGA and MOGA Pro. These new controllers will be based on the same designs, and will feature what they are calling Boost technology. In a nutshell, these new controllers will charge your phone while you are playing so you can play longer. I would assume they will have a pretty large battery in the controllers, but they didn’t specify the size.

Both controllers will have support for multiplayer gaming on the same screen, better ergonomics, improved Bluetooth radios, support for more than 100 MOGA Enhanced and HID compatible games, and the MOGA S.M.R.T. Lock arm for securing phones to the controller. Those few people using a Windows Phone 8 device will be happy to know that they will now be able to use these controllers. For Android users, the MOGA controllers are compatible with Android 2.3 and higher.

You can expect to be able to buy these bad boys in the fall. Full presser after the break.

MOGA Mobile Gaming Controller Gaining Support From Top Game Developers

Sometimes a good idea comes around but there’s not much consumer buy-in, possibly bad marketing, or there is poor developer support. I think most of us can admit that the way mobile games have come along in the past 12 months or so that a proper controller is needed to get the most out of games now. The only problem is the whole idea is moot unless the developers jump on board. Well it looks as if that momentum is gaining a bit – at least regarding the MOGA Mobile Gaming Controller from PowerA.

Two recent AAA games that released with MOGA controller support were Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Gaining support from the best developers is usually critical in pushing ideas forward, while almost making other games’ compatibility ‘mandatory’ just so another game doesn’t have an automatic advantage over it.

This is good news for us as consumers and gamers. The full list of games that have already launched, updated, or will soon be updated with MOGA support are:

  • Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour
  • BATTLE BEARS ROYALE
  • Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
  • Dead Trigger
  • Wild Blood
  • NFL Pro 2013
  • Jet Set Radio
  • Tiki Kart 3D
  • Expendable Rearmed
  • The Bard’s Tale

Here’s to hoping that this list continues to grow.
