Discovery Bay halves price of Gameloft-specific Duo Gamer

The Duo Gamer is an impressive Bluetooth controller that has a simple mission: to bring console quality controls to Gameloft's mobile titles.
After winning a Pocket Gamer Bronze Award for its performance on N.O.V.A. 3 and Asphalt 7, there was really only one thing standing in the way of the Duo Gamer's mass market appeal: its price.
£49.75/$79.99 is quite an investment to make in a peripheral that will only work with a certain developer's games, after all.
To make the Duo Gamer more appealing for the holidays, Discovery Bay Games has cut the price of the controller by 50 per cent – dropping it down to $39.99.
Additionally, Gameloft also announced that two of its newer games - NFL Pro 2013 and Wild Blood – would receive support for the Duo Gamer later this month.
The new pricing for the Duo Gamer goes into effect Wednesday, December 5 and will hold steady throughout the holiday shopping season.
