MOGA, the Android gaming peripheral from accessory manufacturer PowerA, is now available for pre-order at four retailers as well as PowerA's website.

The system, which provides physical controls for MOGA-compatible titles in a gaming handheld-like dock and connects to Android devices wirelessly via Bluetooth, will be released on Oct. 21 for $49.99. Interested parties can pre-order the unit at Amazon, Best Buy, Toys R Us (where it is listed at $59.99) and Walmart. Starting in November, MOGA will also be available at T-Mobile stores. Many Toys R Us, Best Buy and T-Mobile locations will offer kiosks for customers to try out the device.

Games must specifically be tweaked to support MOGA, and PowerA has lined up some publishers of Android games to make their games compatible with MOGA, including Gameloft, Atari, Namco Bandai, Sega and Remedy Entertainment. Here are the Android games that currently work with MOGA:

  • 3D Hunting: Alaskan Hunt
  • 3D Hunting: Zombies
  • Atari's Greatest Hits
  • Duke Nukem 3D
  • Dungeon Hunter 3
  • Gangstar Rio: City of Saints
  • Mike V: Skateboard Party
  • N.O.V.A. 3
  • Pac-Man by Namco
  • Painkiller: Purgatory HD
  • Six-Guns
  • Sky Gamblers: Rise of Glory
  • Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 2
  • Virtua Tennis Challenge

PowerA promises that more games will join that list every month. Check out our impressions of MOGA here.
