The lights are on
It is impossible to look at the landscape of the video game industry and not take in how pervasive mobile gaming has become. PowerA has been making strides in bridging the gap between consoles and phones with the smartly designed MOGA controllers. Now, the company is solving one more problem: power.
The two new MOGA Power controllers will not only keep your Android and, now, Windows 8 phones secure, but they'll also charge you up while playing. Additionally, the smaller of the MOGA Power models has been retooled with clickable thumbsticks, a directional pad, and shoulder buttons.
Over 100 titles are compatible with the $39.99 pocket version and $49.99 full-size model. The current versions are available now, with the Power line arriving this fall.

This makes me want a nVidia Shield for some reason...
Damnit! And I bought the original Pro controller on the day it came out online. Son of a $&^%#*#$&#%!!!!!
yay, i might get one now that it is compatible with windows phone 8, just one question, which one should i get, i like the full-sized one but i'm thinking i should get the pocket one due to size
over 100 titles compatible? that means MAYBE, 1 or 2 games that i actually play. another great idea wit *** compatability. watch it unfold
That one on the right looks downright awful.
If it came with a bunch of compatible games maybe, but I don't see myself dishing out $40-50 for games I pay $1 for. Love the idea though.
that's quite brilliant... not even kidding.
Much better solution than the Nvidia Shield.
This is a cool idea. I especially like how it charges your phone. When I buy a Galaxy S4 soon, I might pick this up.
I had mine for about a week and then returned it since i didn't like the fact that you had to use their app to play games and you couldn't just set it up and use it with emulators. Also trying to pair the damn thing was extremely frustrating and annoying.
Who buys these things?!?!
Do any retail stores carry them
Ah yes, I remember seeing this...
I may consider this now that it also powers the device.
