I reviewed the Mobile Gaming System by PowerA back in October and had a good time with it, but doubted its viability due to the amount of compatible games. Hopefully the good stuff keeps coming - official details ahead.
Woodinville, WA. - December 21, 2012 - More Android games are now being released
simultaneously with support for the MOGA(TM) Mobile Gaming System by PowerA(TM).
Gameloft's Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour, Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and
SkyVu Entertainment's BATTLE BEARS ROYALErecently released on the Google Play store
with MOGA support built right into the game. Gamers with a MOGA can download and
immediately play those games with precision control that is usually only reserved
for console gamers. With Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour, for example, using the "iron
sight" button on MOGA improves gameplay and can increase a gamer's performance.
Since being released in October, new games have been added to the system, with key
titles in every major gaming genre. MOGA Enhanced titles that recently released,
or will be available by the end of the year include:
* Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour (Gameloft)
* BATTLE BEARS ROYALE (SkyVu Entertainment)
* Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (Rockstar)
* Wild Blood (Gameloft)
* Dead Trigger (MADFINGER Games)
* Jet Set Radio (SEGA)
* NFL Pro 2013 (Gameloft)
* Tiki Kart3D (Arb Studios)
* Expendable Rearmed (Retrobomb)

"With the recent launch of Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour, gamers are provided with
some of the most high-quality and immersive gaming experiences currently available
on mobile," said Baudouin Corman, Gameloft VP of Publishing for the Americas. "And
when paired with the MOGA Mobile Gaming System, Android gamers can now also enjoy
the pleasures of a true console-like gaming controller."
"BATTLE BEARS ROYALE is our #1 game and it's all about intense real-time multiplayer
action packed with hilarious comedy," says Ben Vu, Co-Founder & CEO of SkyVu Entertainment.
"Our millions of core fans are extremely competitive. MOGA allows gamers to play
better while keeping their thumbs off the glass to provide a full view of the action."
MOGA was released on October 22, 2012 to critical acclaim, and has attracted support
from top mobile developers and publishers who want to bring console-like precision
and control to their Android phone and tablet-based games. Gameloft, Ratrod Studios,
Ezone, Namco Bandai, SEGA, Ayopa Games, Vector Unit and other acclaimed publishers
have developed MOGA Enhanced blockbuster titles such as The Dark Knight Rises HD,
N.O.V.A. 3, Sonic CD, and Dungeon Hunter 3. New game titles, developers and publishers
are coming on board each month. For a complete list of games that support MOGA,
MOGA combines three key innovations into a single powerful system. The MOGA Controller

dual analog sticks, two shoulder buttons, four action buttons and standardized start
and select buttons. In addition, the MOGA Software Development Kit (SDK) provides
mobile game developers greater precision, robust control and enhanced display abilities
while enabling fast, efficient development of rich new game titles and MOGA enhancement
of existing titles. Finally, the MOGA(TM) Pivot App enables gamers to easily browse,
find and play a list of MOGA Enhanced Games in one convenient location. MOGA Pivot
