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.
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.
The MOGA Ace Power is available from MOGA's online store for $80. The Apple Online Store also has the controller available, but for the old $100 price.

at $80 - $100 the PSP Vita starts looking like a much better value @$199 with actual quality games behind it.
Bring them all down below $39 and we may have something worth talking about.
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!
