Logitech officially reveals PowerShell controller for iOS 7

updated 09:33 am EST, Wed November 20, 2013

Second major controller release for iOS 7 devices

Following months of leaks, Logitech has officially announced the PowerShell, its first game controller case for the iPhone and iPod touch. Compared with MOGA's new controller the PowerShell has a minimalist number of controls, limited to a direction pad, four face buttons, and two shoulder buttons. Both cases do however incorporate a battery -- in the case of the PowerShell, one rated at 1,500mAh.

While in use, the case continues to offer access to power and volume controls, as well as the camera and headphone jack. Charging is done through a micro USB port. Some initial compatible game titles include Bastion, MetalStorm Aces, Asphalt 8, and Galaxy On Fire 2 HD; the hardware itself requires an iPhone 5/5c/5s or fifth-generation iPod touch, all of which must be running iOS 7. The controller costs $100, and is currently only available from Best Buy and the online Apple store. An expanded international release is due to take place in December.
