MOGA Pro Android Controller Out Now
PowerA, the hardware peripheral company that released last year’s Android-supported mobile controller, the MOGA, released today the MOGA Pro Controller, a Bluetooth-enabled full-size controller that allows you to manipulate your mobile Android games with traditional, non-touch controls.
The controller retails at $49.99 on Amazon.com, Walmart.com and the company’s official website. Starting next month, the MOGA Pro will be up for grabs at Target’s website, Best Buy, Fred Meyer, and GameStop, and Walmart stores.
“The full-size MOGA Pro builds on the tremendous success since the launch of MOGA Pocket Controller last October,” said Eric Bensussen, President of PowerA in a press release.
“When gamers put the MOGA Pro Controller in their hands, there’s an instant familiarity. As the recognized leader with impressive developer support and a growing list of top games including MADFINGER’s Dead Trigger and Gameloft’s Modern Combat 4, we’re giving mobile gamers a console-style experience, with an Android device that they already own.”
The controller itself has rubber grips for handling on the backside, clickable dual analog sticks, four face buttons, a D-pad, shoulder buttons, and triggers. It also comes with a USB-rechargeable battery pack and a stand for your tablet (should you have one). The package includes the MOGA Pivot App, which acts as a central hub for all MOGA-supported Android games.
A full list of supported games can be seen here, but from what we’ve seen (and played as well), you’ll see games like Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Shadowgun: DeadZone, Sonic CD, Dead Trigger and previously Wii-exclusive The Conduit HD to be supported.
We’ll have a review going up for the MOGA Pro within the next few days, which you should check back in for if you’re on the fence about giving it a whirl.
