MOGA, the First Complete Mobile Controller for Android, Coming in October
We’ve got the Ouya Android console out there, the Wikipad tablet console and now yet another gaming accessory for Android gaming has appeared. Meet the MOGA, the first complete mobile gaming system for Android devices, that will come to the USA on October 21st 2012. The device comes with the free downloadable MOGA Pivot app and a soft case.
By purchasing the Bluetooth controller MOGA you also get two free games, Sonic CD and Pac-Man by Namco, as part of a limited time offer from retailers. Moga is priced at $49.99 and top publishers like Gameloft, Atari, Namco Bandai, Sega, Remedy Entertainment and more have already committed to developing games for the MOGA. Gameloft has MOGA support for hot titles like The Dark Knight Rises HD, Asphalt 7: Heat HD and Dungeon Hunter 3. Death Rally is the Remedy title that also got MOGA support recently.
The system initially supports Android 2.3 Gingerbread and higher devices. We’re dealing with a Bluetooth controller here, as shown in the picture, but it actually looks nice, compared to some recent DIY solutions that strapped gamepads to smartphones. Is it worth your money, though?
