The general thought process when it comes to iOS 7 game controllers is this: “I would like one of those, but they’re horribly expensive.”
MOGA is apparently trying to do something about that, since it has just dropped the price of its Ace Power iOS 7 controller from $99.99 to $79.99. That’s still $40 more than you can buy a PlayStation 3 Dualshock 3 wireless controller for (which you can then use to play iOS games provided you’re willing to jailbreak your iPhone or iPod Touch), but if cost is the one factor that’s been holding back your decision to buy an Ace Power controller, this may help sway you in the right direction.
If you’re a hardcore gamer who has never quite gotten over the fact that your iPhone doesn’t have a D-pad, Moga has just made available for purchase the first iOS 7 compatible game controller, the Ace Power. But you might want to hold onto your money for now.
MOGA’s new gamepad for iPhone has been leaked ahead of its official debut, and I think you’ll agree that it looks pretty incredible. The device follows Apple’s guidelines for game controllers designed for iOS 7 — so it has all of the buttons that will soon become standard for iOS gamepads — as well as a built-in battery and a nifty design that closes up for portability.
