MOGA drops Ace Power Controller price to $80

MOGA drops Ace Power Controller price to $80

All three MFi game controllers designed to work with iOS devices - Logitech's PowerShell, MOGA's Power Controller and Steelseries' Stratus - debuted at $100. But Logitech and Steelseries have already cut the prices on their controllers (to $70 and $80, respectively). Now MOGA is following suit. They've reduced the price of their Ace Power Controller to $79.99, according to MacRumors.

The Ace Power Controller is designed to work with the iPhone 5, 5c, 5s and fifth-generation iPod touch. It locks the device in place and provides dual analog sticks, shoulder buttons, a D-pad and four action buttons. It's compatible with any game or application that makes use of iOS 7's built-in support for MFi game controllers.

Is $80 worth it? Or are the prices still too high for iOS-compatible game controllers? Sound off in the comments!

How would you feel if the iPhone 6 didn't have a bigger screen?

Still too pricy, I can see it being the same price as any other overpriced OEM game controller out there. Yes $40 is too much for a controller, considering you're just changing technology from infrared to Bluetooth (if not changing at all), hell make it the size, that's I want at least.

After using all of the controllers substantially, this one is still my favorite for iPhone games. The SteelSeries is great for the iPad, but it is nice to have the iPhone connected to the controller.

I put together a list of all compatible games here:

This probably have to do with the recent MFi licensing fee changes. Just wish it'd drop down to 50-60$.

It appears to still be a little pricey.

I paid $35 for a ps3 controller on Black Friday. I can't see paying for for one of the iOS controllers for much more due to most games are not compatible

Still too high. I'd pay 40 bucks for it. But I would hope they'd still turn a profit.

The pricing is getting better.
I still can't help but compare and hold MFi controllers to the same standards I have always had & expect from console & PC controllers.
Perhaps one day I may change...
Nah. I'm too old for that now.
