While you sift through all the games on sale as well as Android devices this weekend, SteelSeries has also put on a bit of a sale. In fact all of their products on their web store are at least 30% off and that includes the two mobile gaming products the company has recently released. Both the SteelSeries Free mobile gaming controller and the SteelSeria Flux headset are on sale this weekend only.
If there are not enough new controllers coming out onto the market right now that peak your interest, such as the SteelSeries FREE, MOGA or Nyko controllers, then you'll be happy to know there is at least one more heading our way coming from a newly announced company called Green Throttle. This company was created by one of the creators of Guitar Heroes and some mobile gaming industry veterans. The goal, however, isn't just to make a new controller but to turn your Android phone or tablet into a true gaming console.
PowerA has sent out word that their MOGA mobile gaming system has finally begun arriving on the store shelves at 1,150 AT&T locations across the USA for the usual price of $49.99. For those of you who are still unfamiliar with the MOGA controller, it allows for your phone to clip right into it, offering up all the standard buttons you could want in a full-size controller although slightly smaller in size and with the phone clasp. It can also double as a tablet gaming controller as well since it runs through Bluetooth.
Back during E3 2012 a new company had come out and announced a new line-up of game controllers specifically designed for mobile gaming. This company, Nyko, had done some good work researching and designing their upcoming mobile gaming controllers from what we had seen back then. Now, we finally can get our hands on some as both the Nyko PlayPad and the Nyko PlayPad Pro Tablet controllers are now available for purchase at GameStop.
Since the inception of OUYA, the upcoming Android-based gaming console that will also be open source, the slated release time frame for the console to hit store shelves has been around March 2013. Even yesterday when we were reporting on the fact that OUYA would come out of the box with Jelly Bean (Android 4.2) as its initial OS version, we still only knew that it would become available around March 2013. However, it could be coming sooner than that, a lot sooner in fact.
So a little OUYA news for you today, since we haven't had much in awhile. Actually we get OUYA news all the time, mostly related to games coming to it and we will be doing a weekly round-up every week soon to talk about them. However, today's news is more about the system itself and the company building the Android-based console gaming system has confirmed that it will be coming with Jelly Bean when it arrives next year.
Well today was supposed to be the large media event Google was going to hold but it unfortunately got canceled due to the bad weather going on over on the East coast, which we hope all of our readers over there are taking measures to stay safe. Google, instead of rescheduling the event to announce the new Nexus devices, has gone ahead and made everything official today anyways through an online announcement instead. So what is official? The LG Nexus 4, the Nexus 10 tablet and the Nexus 7 32GB version tablet.
The next generation of the Samsung Galaxy Note, appropriately named the Samsung Galaxy Note II, has officially gone on sale for those of you who have been eagerly waiting to get your hands on this new device. Depending on the route you take in acquiring one, you can purchase it for $370 on-contract through T-Mobile or, if you want to get it a little cheaper, you can hit up Wirefly where it is currently going for $279 with a new two-year contract.
While October 29th is only five days away, which is when Google will be having an event in New York which everyone is pretty much guess will be the official announcement of the Nexus 4 device, probably something to do with Android 4.2 and even possibly the Nexus 10 tablet. One thing is for certain, something with a Nexus will be involved.
We've had the pleasure of using the MOGA mobile gaming system for the past four or so days, giving it a thorough fondling in just about every aspect we could think of. Needless to say the concept, since it first was reported on, was a very good one and caught the interest of many developers both big and small. So now that we have played with it for a few days and now that it's officially available in stores as of today, here is our rather in-depth review of the MOGA unit.
One of a few upcoming game controllers a lot of people have been looking forward to getting is the MOGA mobile gaming system. Well the good news today for those of you waiting is that the waiting is actually over. The MOGA will be hitting the shelves at Toys R' Us and Best Buy starting today as well as Fred Meyer and Gamestop. For those of you more apt to shopping online, you can also pick the MOGA up off of Amazon and PowerA's website.
