PowerA's MOGA Mobile Gaming System controller to dock with your Android handset this October

1 clip, 2 sticks, no waiting

Product: MOGA Mobile Gaming System | Manufacturer: PowerA

PowerA's MOGA Mobile Gaming System, an attachable Bluetooth controller for Android handsets and tablets, will be released on October 21st.

The MOGA Mobile Gaming System looks much like a standard console joypad: it boasts dual-analog sticks, four face buttons on the right, and two shoulder buttons.

Your handset or tablet is slotted into an adjustable clip (called the MOGA Arm), which folds out from the centre of the pad.

Once the MOGA Mobile System is attached and connected via Bluetooth, you can use the free MOGA Pivot app to browse, locate, and download MOGA-compatible games (provided you're running Android 2.3+).

There's no manual mapping option, so you'll have to rely on your favourite devs updating their games voluntarily if you want to start waggling those sticks.

Hands-on

We spent some time with the MOGA Mobile Gaming System at E3, and were largely impressed with the unit's solid construction.

The controller will retail for $49.99, and comes with a soft case and the Pivot app. It will also come bundled with Sonic CD and Pac-Man, though this is a limited-time offer.

Heavily overpriced for a controller without an internal battery. I like the Pro version better, as it has full functionality of a controller (I bet the regular could've fit in a D-Pad if they really want it to), while also having a rechargeable battery. The regular one is much more portable looking, so that's one good thing about it against all the bad things.
Still, WAY too expensive for the regular and I'm thinking the Pro version will be even more overpriced.
