PowerA unveils Moga Bluetooth controller for Android devices
Gaming on Android has derive a long way since the early moments – we’re even beginning to see console-quality titles come out for sure devices. Even so, there’s single huge defect: touch controls, to the most part, are perfect crap. They are a bit more manageable at a device as though a tablet, just they are absolute inoperable on a smartphone.
The solution? A controller. This is turning a progressively widely adopted boast, gives thanks to matters as though the Zeemote. To boot, the Tegra 3 processor’s kernel provides support for USB controller baked-in.
At present, PowerA, a firm experienced for producing gaming accessories, is attempting their hand at afresh MOGA Bluetooth controller for Android. And it seems pretty promising.
A companion app, usable free of charge through the Google Play store, is as well separate from the Moga experience. Addressed the Moga Pivot app, it skims your phone to games compatible with the MOGA Bluetooth controller for Android, leans them, and allows you release them directly from the app. Not just that, it will update the games list periodically as new games are adopted and it will automatically download patch kits for existing titles as they turn compatible on the controller.
In addition, it is got a store (Google Play) that will let users download fresh compatible titles, and games at the Play Store could have a badge to let people know which titles work with Moga. Presently, the company bears 14 titles on board — such as Duke Nukem 3D, Sonic CD and Virtua Tennis Challenge– and are in negotiation with another big publishers, so several titles could be supported by MOGA Bluetooth controller for Android at the coming weeks or months.
So, how many is it going to cost? That is the thing – we do not know yet. PowerA has expressed that the Moga should be available prior to the 2012 holiday season, so we will probably see MOGA Bluetooth controller price tag show up in the coming months.
