MOGA has cut the price of its Ace Power iOS 7 game controller by $20, taking the price down to $80 from $100. The news comes after price reductions from competitors for devices like the SteelSeries Stratus and Logitech Powershell.
The MOGA Ace Power was the first iPhone compatible controller to hit the shelves when it launched it Novemeber last year. The controller features a d-pad, dual analog sticks, 4 action buttons/triggers, and a built-in 1800 mAh battery for recharging the device.
MOGA announced the reduction in a press release (via MacRumors):
We wanted to let you know that as of this morning, the price of MOGA ACE POWER has been lowered to $79.99 MSRP in Apple Stores and most other retailers. These past few months have seen a huge influx of great controller-enabled iOS games onto the App Store, and to-date, MOGAAnywhere.com has curated a list of more than 120 of these games that now work with the MOGA ACE POWER controller.
It is unclear whether iOS 7 game controllers are finding it easier to offer their products at a lower price due to recent reductions in MFi licensing fees or if competition is simply pushing the prices down.
Yesterday, Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic CD were added to a growing list of games supporting third-party iOS 7 game controllers helping to make them a more compelling product for iOS gamers.
Will the price reductions in the iOS controller space prompt you to make a purchase or do you feel the prices are still a little steep? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter: @TodaysiPhone.
