Monday February 10, 2014 1:30 PM PST by Jordan Golson
MOGA has dropped the price of its Ace Power iOS 7 gaming controller to $80, down from $100. The controller was released back in November, the first of a number of iPhone-compatible game controllers that hit the market following the launch of iOS 7.

The MOGA controller includes a battery component that charges the iPhone to extend gameplay. There are a number of other similar controller devices on the market as well.

Shocker.

Bring them all down below $39 and we may have something worth talking about.

$20 - $49 Max

at $80 - $100 the PSP Vita starts looking like a much better value @$199 with actual quality games behind it.

Not if you fit the controller around your iPhone and keep it that way - imagine, everyone starts pulling iPhones out of their pockets with controllers attached already, and then holding them up to their ears for phone calls. It couldn't look any weirder than people holding those phablets up to their ears and speaking into them, could it?

Spend $100 more to get a Vita and you'll only have to carry around two devices to play a game. ;-)

Though I think the $100 price tag is a bit steep, I can't imagine this market will demand quantities that will drive prices down significantly to see the prices you want. If they hit $20, I'd worry about the MFi programme as a whole as that price is perfect for a fire sale.

We have to remember this is an accessory that isn't required to play games on iOS devices, the majority of people who will buy it are serious about playing iOS games and are gamers who really see the value in a controller - I don't see this having mass market appeal (which would perhaps support a $20 price tag).

Still 20% - it's a nice start, now let's see a bit more, I expect when a few more manufacturers enter the market with offerings we'll see lower prices, can't wait!
