MOGA Mobile Gaming System for Android Smartphones Available from T-Mobile

t's no secret that smartphones (and tablets) are generally ill-equipped for certain games, at least as far as physical controls are concerned. So T-Mobile is offering a solution in the form of the MOGA Mobile Gaming System, created by PowerA. (Android, Tag Invalid, Tech)

I own the MOGA and have mixed feelings about it. Here's my semi review:

The controller itself is semi-decent. I would say the feel of it is overall cramped and the sliders on it are responsive but kind of rigid. Think of it akin to the 3DS sliders except not as good. The buttons are satisfyingly "clicky" and responsive. The triggers are nice although they are NOT analog. The response time is pretty good. The PS Vita and 3DS (OG and XL) are definitely more comfortable overall but the MOGA is good enough for some light gaming.

I'm much more critical of the software available and the Android Pivot app. There are only a handful of titles available- and most are Gameloft. That in itself isn't horrible, however, any titles you purchased from Google Play WILL NOT PLAY. Only Gameloft games purchased from Gameloft's store will work. The problem is supposed to be fixed on November 8th a Power A rep informed me. I hope that date isn't smoke and mirror's. This isn't the only problem I had- Sonic CD was supposed to be included for free but the download code didn't work. Lastly the Android Pivot app is extremely glitchy on my Nexus 7. My downloaded software sometimes appears under the games supported list, and sometimes it doesn't. The marketplace section that is supposed to let you download supported titles is more or less a Gameloft store portal. 40 games were promised at release- there are only a handful your able to download that aren't directly from Gameloft and their dumb store.

If you were turned off by my pseudo review I don't blame you, however I believe this product has potential. Power A has some of the best customer support I've ever dealt with. I believe the product is almost there. A few kinks need to be worked out. Give the device a couple of months and it should gain enough industry support.

This type of attachment is what the nx box controller needs for smartglass.. It would be less expensive than investing into a controller with a built in screen.. We shall see that they do but as far a phone games go, i will NEVER support it.. Sony/Nintendo handhelds for life baby..
