Moga Set to Add a Wireless Bluetooth iOS Game Controller to its Lineup
The mobile gaming accessory company Moga is set to add a wireless Bluetooth option to its iOS game controller lineup at the Game Developer Conference next month which is set to take place in San Francisco. The company offered a glimpse of the new device in a recently released teaser image.
The controller in the teaser image seems to sport a design similar to that of Moga’s Pro Power controller for Android devices including a front-facing multi-LED battery meter. The folks over at TouchArcade
were the first to have news of the device, which the publication believes, based on the lettering visible in the image, will be named the “Rebel.”
Based on the things we can see, there are two thumbsticks, a four-way directional pad, four action buttons, a pause button and a recessed Bluetooth sync button. The middle of the controller appears to be dedicated to a fold-out clip that could hold an iPhone or iPod Touch in place during gaming sessions.
For those of you that didn’t know, Moga’s first “Made for iPhone” game controller, the Ace Power, hit shelves last December. The controller helped enhanced gameplay on the iPhone but with a flimsy construction that didn’t justify its $100 price tag. The cost of the Moga Ace Power has since dropped to $80.
The Rebel on the other hand will be the third Bluetooth controller for Apple’s mobile devices to debut this year. SteelSeries unveiled the bite-sized Stratus in January, just a few days before the Signal released the RP One.
