Moga Pro Power Review Negative Review
Pricey – that will be the first impression of the consumer. The price of $79.99 USD for a controller is just a little bit high for everyone to afford. Also, some say that even though it was said that the battery life can last from 12 to 15 hours – well it fails. You might want to keep the cables attached to your PC or keep them charged all the time while playing or you will suddenly lose your control to the game.
In the end…
The decision is still yours to make, if you think you will enjoy more playing with your favorite games with the best mobile gaming controller like MOGA Pro Power then why not buy one. Otherwise, stick with the old screen controllers you have on your device. 🙂
