A new GamesBeat event is around the corner! Learn more about what comes next.
PowerA is launching its Moga Pro controller for the U.S. market today. The new device is a step up from the Moga controller launched last fall for Android devices.
The new one has a full-sized look and resembles a traditional game console controller. It is available for $49.99 at Amazon.com, Walmart.com, and MOGAanywhere.com.
Next month, the controller will be available at Target.com, Best Buy, Fred Meyer, GameStop, and Walmart stores. For a limited time, it comes with a free download of Gameloft’s N.O.V.A. 3 — or the Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance 3 game.
Three top investment pros open up about what it takes to get your video game funded.
“The full-size Moga Pro builds on the tremendous success since the launch of Moga Pocket controller last October,” said Eric Bensussen, the president of PowerA, in a statement. “When gamers put the Moga Pro controller in their hands, there’s an instant familiarity.”
Supported titles include Madfinger’s Dead Trigger, Gameloft’s Modern Combat 4, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Tiki Kart 3D, NFL Pro 2013, The Dark Knight Rises HD, Sonic CD, and Jet Set Radio. Developers can make their games Moga-enhanced by using the free software development kit (SDK).
The pocket-sized Moga controller released last October, and that older model now sells for $39.99. The new one comes with console-style grips, clickable dual-analog sticks, four action buttons, a classic directional pad, two shoulder buttons, two shoulder triggers, rechargeable batteries, a USB charging cord, and a tablet stand. It can connect with Android devices via Bluetooth.
