Logitech's 'PowerShell' iOS 7 Game Controller Now Available

Following the release of the MOGA Ace Power earlier this week, Logitech has officially announced its PowerShell game controller for the iPhone 5/5c/5s and the fifth-generation iPod touch. The form-fitting controller is made to plug into the Lightning port on a newer iOS device and features console-style controls including a directional pad, shoulder bumpers, and face buttons. The controller also allows for headphones to be connected through an included adapter, and also leaves the volume up/down buttons, ring/silent switch, and power/sleep button of an iOS device fully accessible.

Logitech's controller also includes a 1500 mAh battery which will charge an iOS device whiile it is plugged into the controller, and can also be charged simultaneously with a device through the controller's micro-USB port.


Rumors of Logitech's controller originally surfaced with a photo of an early prototype back in June, with Logitech teasing the controller's existence in September. The final design of the controller is also consistent with leaked images of the device released in October.

Currently, games such as Dead Trigger 2, Asphalt 8: Airborne, and Bastion offer controller support, with additional developers pledging to build controller support into their apps now that the hardware is avaliable to consumers.

The Logitech PowerShell Controller is available today for $99.99 from Bestbuy.com and the Apple Online Store, with an expanded international release set for December.

Pointless buying one really because when the new iPhone comes out if the shape is different and height it not going to worth the money because it would be complete and utter useless

Why can't anyone design a controller that overlaps the black bars on the top and bottom of the iPhone? You could just leave a hole for the home button, and it would look a lot less awkward.
