One of the most interesting non-console-related products we saw at E3 this year, the MOGA Mobile Gaming System by Power A, has shipped to retail today. The adapter for your mobile phone allows a thumbstick-based gaming experience on a mobile device, making racing games and shooters much easier to play and generally more enjoyable. In effect, the MOGA turns your phone into a DS or Vita handheld device, but with the game library you already own.

The MOGA Mobile Gaming System currently supports Android 2.3+ and also works with tablets. In addition to being available at Amazon, it’s also available in more than 7,000 retail stores including Best Buy, Walmart, Toys R Us, Fred Meyer, Gamestop and other smaller retailers. It’s also available through PowerA.com.
MOGA combines three key innovations into a single system. The MOGA Controller is the first state-of-the-art, full-featured controller designed specifically for mobile devices. Pocket-sized, portable and connected via Bluetooth, the MOGA Controller features the controls that mobile gamers and developers demand: dual analog sticks, two shoulder buttons, four action buttons and standardized start and select buttons. In addition, the MOGA Software Development Kit (SDK) provides mobile game developers greater precision, robust control and enhanced display abilities while enabling fast, efficient development of rich new game titles and MOGA enhancement of existing titles. Finally, the MOGA Pivot App enables gamers to easily browse, find and play a list of MOGA Enhanced Games in one convenient location. MOGA Pivot App will be available free via Google Play.
Gameloft, Ratrod Studios, Atari, Namco Bandai, SEGA, Vector Unit, Remedy Entertainment and other acclaimed publishers have committed to developing MOGA Enhanced games. Today more than 45 games, including blockbuster titles such as The Dark Knight Rises HD, N.O.V.A. 3, Sonic CD, Death Rally, Dungeon Hunter 3, and more have been MOGA Enhanced. New game titles, developers and publishers are coming on board each month. For a complete list of games that support MOGA, visit this site.
