Site officially dead! Frown
After hours of slow connections and timeouts, the page was pulled..this is the response you'll get when visiting the website www.powera.com.

"Wow! You must really like MOGA!
Don’t worry, the deal is still on.

We have temporarily taken down PowerA.com due to the overwhelming response.

Please check back as we will be back in business shortly!

Didn’t get your order in? Don’t worry, we will be extending the offer.
Be sure to Follow us on Facebook & Twitter for more updates as it becomes available."

Power-A, a company that makes game controllers, is giving away a limited supply of their MOGA Android controller. it connects via bluetooth and allows you to play compatible games.

This also will arrive with a free download coupon for Modern Combat 4 by Gameloft. Just pay S+H = $4.95

Link to instructions:
http://delivr.com/1lil5

What you need to do:
Go to: Power-A's MOGA order page [powera.com] and add one to your cart.

When you get to the check out page, apply the code: secretsanta and it should come back as $0.00. (if not, they are likely out of stock.)

At the end you'll see that ground shipping is $4.95.

The Modern Combat 4 code comes in the packaging of the controller so you'll have to wait til it comes in the mail. This code can be used to redeem MC4 from the Gameloft website for free.

Here are some reviews on the controller attachment.

Got mine today. Can't tell you how it is; I don't have any AAA batteries around and it doesn't come with any. It does feel solid and it fits my Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 w/ hard rubber case with some room left for something slightly bigger.

PS:
Ordered mine around Dec 13th 5pm PST
Confirmation email around Dec 15th 4am PST
Shipped email around Dec 16th 5am PST (No tracking number)
Received today Dec 21st
I live in Southern California

PPS:
I emailed them Dec16th about tracking and never got a reply. Happy it came before Christmas though.
why do you need AAA batteries? i thought this has the built in rechargable battery and you can charge via microusb.

Nope, no rechargeables or micro-usb. They are just normal AAA batteries that get you about 18 hours of life.

PC Driver for the moga was just posted. I have yet to try it because my moga hasn't come yet, but looks good!

Well considering that this is for a phone, 18 hours is decent. I mean unless you are sitting there for 8 hours each day playing on your phone, the batteries will last you a good 2-3 months.

bluetooth tech on battery is not that good.
this will eat up batteries like crazy.
not a good news then.

hopefully staples can give me more duracell rewards so i can get more AAAs instead of AAs

You could get rechargeable AAA batteries, I just received mine today, fits my note II even with a case on it which is awesome. The hardware itself is very nice and I just tested it out on Bard's Tale, works very well. Should be nice to watch movies on as well, the note II can be awkward to hold when you're lying down.

If you want something rechargeable there's the game klip which uses a PS3 controller.

No to either. With Pacman, it will let you download as soon as you register the MOGA Pivot software, once you finish registering it will show it in your list of games that are compatible and the ability to download it right from the menu. For Sonic, you have to go into PIvot's settings and hit "redeem code" input the code that came in the packaging. It will then send a download link to the email address you used to register the Pivot Software (So make sure it's legit!.) The email you get will have a link you click and it will download to your phone. It's about 260mb and I absolutely hate the way the MOGA version works.

The default Google Play version is around the same size but it's split into an APK and the data that goes in the SD Card, like any game that is larger than 50mb. This version is just one big 260+mb file that CAN NOT BE MOVED TO SD CARD!. So you have to have this 260mb file sitting in your phones internal memory in order to play it. That is ludicrous and unacceptable. Another huge bug is the screen timeout issue. The game doesn't have a wakelock, so when using the MOGA, if your screen timeout is set at 1min...the game will go black in 1min unless you go into settings and change it, or keep tapping the screen. Horrible oversight. I'm not happy with the Sonic CD version. the game itself runs great, but those issues are too big to ignore.
Just install the Moga universal driver (there is a link on the wiki by ninjadancer). Once you have it installed, there is a wakelock setting to keep the screen on when the moga is connected.

I still haven't gotten mine. Those who have, did your tracking number actually show up on Fedex? The tracking number they sent me doesn't work on fedex - seems it's not a valid number.

Some people have been able to track. I'm not sure if they found a "smartpost" way to do that. Most of us have simply received it by surprise with no tracking updates.

I got an email saying it shipped, however the tracking number didn't work on the FedEx website, but it showed up today. If you have the email just be patient, it will be there bounce
