PowerA unveils console-style MOGA Pro Controller for gaming on Android devices

Gaming accessory company PowerA will release a new controller for its MOGA Mobile Gaming System this spring, a MOGA Pro Controller built in the style of full-featured console controllers for use with Android devices, the company announced at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show today.

The MOGA Pro features the classic directional pad and four action buttons, dual analog sticks, full-sized hand grips and two shoulder bumpers and triggers. The controller can be recharged via a USB charging cord and tablet stand as well as by changing batteries.

The MOGA Pro will fully support PowerA's MOGA Mobile Gaming System, which aims to create a console gaming experience on mobile devices. Users can wireless synch the MOGA system with Android devices via Bluetooth connection. The Pro Controller's "arm" can also attach to and hold devices up to 3.2 inches wide.

On first use players will need to download the MOGA Pivot App, which will walk them through instructions on setting up the Bluetooth connection and getting started gaming.

"The response to our MOGA pocket-sized controller from Android gamers has been fantastic, and we're now excited to give mobile gamers true, console-style control with MOGA Pro," said PowerA president Eric Bensussen in a press release. "Now more than ever, mobile gamers will feel at home with a traditional controller while playing the huge variety of games available on the MOGA Mobile Gaming System."

The MOGA Pro Controller will be available in spring 2013. A price has not yet been determined.
