You likely caught our initial announcement of the MOGA a few weeks ago and thought that the proof is in the pudding, but you’d have to buy it to try it. Well, MOGA is now available to pre-order and before you drop your cash on the counter, you can take it for a spin yourself! T-Mobile, Best Buy and Toys ‘R Us stores will have the unit at over 7000 stores starting on October 21st. Here is what we know so far:
MOGA combines three key innovations into a single powerful system. The MOGA Controller is the first state-of-the-art, full-featured controller designed specifically for mobile devices. Pocket-sized, portable and connected via Bluetooth®, the MOGA Controller features the controls that mobile gamers and developers demand: dual analog sticks, two shoulder buttons, four action buttons and standardized start and select buttons. In addition, the MOGA Software Development Kit (SDK) provides mobile game developers greater precision, robust control and enhanced display abilities while enabling fast, efficient development of rich new game titles and MOGA enhancement of existing titles. Finally, the MOGA™ Pivot App enables gamers to easily browse, find and play a library of MOGA Enhanced Games in one convenient location. MOGA Pivot App will be available free via Google Play.
I’ve got a review unit heading my way, so I’ll be able to tell you all about this cool looking system with the odd name very soon. If this isn’t an indication of the maturation of phone gaming, I don’t know what is. Check out the press release below for all of the details.
