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.
Will allow more precision in compatible games
Accessory maker MOGA has formally revealed the Ace Power, a game controller for the iPhone and iPod touch. The device is the first to take advantage of iOS 7's GameController API, standardizing controller support. It includes two sticks, a direction pad, four main buttons, and shoulder triggers. It clamps around the top and bottom of an iPhone or iPod, also plugging into the Lightning port. This lets the accessory supply extra battery life.
