Moga: A console and controller in one

SAN DIEGO--Who says you can't take your console with you? The Moga Bluetooth Controller by PowerA is an analog gaming accessory with two joysticks and heaps of buttons.

Need for processor speed

I saw it demonstrated (and tested it out myself) on a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 with a quad-core processor. The game choice couldn't be more apropos -- Need for Speed.

Face value

There's no pricing or availability details yet, but the Moga controller will bring joy to boy and girl gamers who shop at T-Mobile retail stores -- they're just one of PowerA's distributors.

Deep grooves on a rubbery, tactile surface help you keep your grip.

Fit 'n' finish

The smooth curves fit comfortably and naturally in the hand. It's easy to hook your fingers to press the left and right trigger buttons at the rear of the controller.

One last look

The adjustable neck helps resize the Moga controller to clamp down on phones of varying size. We'll have a ton of fun testing this when it comes in for review, you can bet on that.
