PowerA In the News
February 13, 2013
"After using the MOGA for a week, I have a hard time imagining myself going back to touch controls for those games that have always deserved physical controls. Instead of fighting the touchscreen, I can now simply enjoy them the way they were truly intended. The MOGA controller, and other devices like it, turn your Android phone into a serious hardcore mobile gaming platform."

"I got a chance to test-drive PowerA's upcoming console-like MOGA Pro Controller for Android in addition to the pocket-sized Mobile Gaming System. Both sport a retractable arm that secures your Android phone to the device, and a Tegra Zone-like app on Google Play that lists Android games supporting both controllers."

"The MOGA Pro is a solidly built, comfortable controller. Where the MOGA felt a bit constricting and prone to causing hand cramps over long use, the MOGA Pro feels as natural as a regular game console controller. The triggers out back resemble those of the Xbox 360's gamepad, and the same quality applies to the clickable dual analogs on the face. The d-pad is perfectly serviceable as well."

"As we played through a few levels of "Dead Trigger," we immediately noticed the Pro's solid weight and the ridged, soft-touch grips. Our index fingers wrapped easily around the controller, and the buttons and triggers delivered strong springy feedback. The action was sharp and fast-paced with no sign of latency. Overall the MOGA Pro is a great choice for mobile gamers. Fans of FPS titles such as "Shadowgun" and "Dead Trigger" will appreciate the precision the controller offers."

"MOGA has attracted support from mobile developers and publishers who want to bring console-like precision and control to their Android phone and tablet-based games. Touchscreens are fun, but they're not great for controlling traditional games, as your fingers cover half the screen when you're swiping."

"Now here's a controller (FUS1ON) I love to have in my hands." "The feel of the (MOGA) device is just about perfect: as it turns out, sometimes smaller is better ."

"In short, we found the MOGA to be a good option for folks looking for some tactile controls to use while gaming on their phones. The controller is solidly constructed, and its spring loaded clamp worked quite well holding a GSII in place while we played."

"As a controller the Air Flo is rock solid. The sticks are nice and tight and the buttons are responsive and not too squishy. The d-pad is responsive and the whole unit has a good quality feel to it."

"The latest controller for the PS3 to catch my eye is PowerA's Pro Elite Wireless controller. It's just a good, sturdy, well performing controller. The first thing that you notice is that its got nice heft to it and feels durable."
