MOGA has announced that the MOGA REBEL – a full-sized, console-style, premium game controller for iOS – will be releasing on September 17. The bluetooth wireless controller has dual analog sticks, L1/R1 and L2/R2 buttons, a D-pad, and four action buttons.

Eric Bensussen, President and Co-Founder of PowerA said, “We’ve seen an influx of triple-A games coming to the portable gaming market, including 2K’s recently released BioShock for iOS, and we’re thrilled to usher in the MOGA REBEL as the next best-in-class controller, enabling a rich, console-style experience on iOS devices. With the addition of MOGA REBEL to our iOS controller family, which also includes the more portable MOGA ACE POWER, we’re giving gamers two quality controllers with a choice of size and features to suit their individual needs.”

The MOGA REBEL will be available for purchase on September 17 for $79.99. You can check out which games are currently MOGA compatible here.

SteelSeries revealed their Stratus XL today: a sleek, full-sized, console-style gaming controller designed for iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch. Ever since SteelSeries brought us their quality mini controller in 2012, fans have been asking for a full-sized model.

As with most controllers, the Stratus XL features a D-pad, 4 action buttons, 4 shoulder buttons, and dual analog sticks. It will also have a pairing button to connect to iOS devices via Bluetooth and a convenient on/off switch to conserve battery. The Stratus XL will deliver an estimated 40 hours of gameplay with two standard AA batteries. The controller will be able to interface with many gaming apps such as Leo’s Fortune, Bastion, and GTA: San Andreas.

You can expect to see the Stratus XL to be available for purchase later this year.

So it looks like the MOGA Ace Power MFi controller has had a price drop. The collapsable iOS controller has gone from $99.99 down to $79.99 – possibly due to some rather stiff competition, hmm?

Well regardless of the reason, you can now get your hands on the MOGA Ace Power for $20 less than you could before. So if you’ve been wrestling with the idea of buying one for yourself now might be the time to reconsider.

Looks like there’s been a change in the SteelSeries Stratus wireless game controller’s price recently. The MFi controller is still in its preorder phase, but the price has officially been dropped by $20. So instead of paying $99 for the wireless bluetooth iOS controller, you’ll be able to get it for $79. People who have already preordered the controller need not fret however; SteelSeries has stated that they will be honoring the $79 launch price on all preorders, regardless of whether or not they were placed before the price drop.

If you liked what you’ve read in Jeff Scott’s review, or if the new price tag makes it hard to resist, you can head on over to the official SteelSeries store page and preorder a Stratus controller of your own.

Stratus an MFi Bluetooth Controller from Steel Series Review

A great MFi controller, it has all of the controls one would want. Perhaps it's the best available right now. It's hampered only by it's small size and large price.
