“We’re really excited to be bringing the MOGA gaming ecosystem to the Aussie audience as it’s already been a proven game-changer in the US and UK markets” commented Eric Bensussen, President of PowerA. ”Going beyond the simple touchscreen point and flick mechanisms, our controller gives users full control of their character or conquest, whilst also allowing the graphics to be shown off in all their glory. MOGA is shifting the dial for smartphones, making them not just mobile social media and comms devices that we know and love, but also powerful and engaging gaming devices!”
MOGA will launch with major publisher support from Sega, Rockstar Games, Namco Bandai and many more.
