MOGA’s new MFi controller, the MOGA Ace Power, is set to offer full console-style controls for your iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, and iPod 5th generation. It comes with dual analog sticks, a d-pad, action buttons, and L1/R1 L2/R2 shoulder buttons. It also features MOGA Boost: an internal battery which helps power your phone while you play, extending the battery life so you can enjoy all your favorite games for a longer period of time. Pretty nifty, yes?
The early reviews are good, but not great. CNET mentions that it “feels more like a $50 device than a $100 one.” Don’t be too excited yet, even the developers that have added support for controllers haven’t had time to test their games with an actual controller. Pocket Gamer reports “Judging by games like Trouserheart and Into the Dead, which are supposed to have controller support but barely even work in practice, it’s clear that developers need more time with the actual hardware to get their games feeling good.”
The MOGA Power Ace should be available for pre-order this week at mogaanywhere.com and will reportedly cost $99.
