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:

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.

Ordered mine, still no confirmation email but I got the order number. Very excite. I've been wanting to buy one of these. They mention that ground is estimated to arrive Dec 28, mine came out to be like $5.30. $10-20 for faster shipping may be a good idea since your getting this $50+ controller gratis. The MW4 download code is for gamelofts website, not google play, so that's lame but it will drop to 99 cents for a day in no time so I can have it attached to my account.
Oh, good catch, I'll adjust the post and clarify that it's for Gameloft site, not Play Store

Has anybody gotten a confirmation email yet? I received an order #, but no email, and my account shows an empty order history still.

I just bought it, hopefully it goes through. I am getting an S3 this weekend, so I figure this will be a good addition to my gaming needs. Thanks OP and original OP Stick Out Tongue

This is pretty slick if it goes through.

I was more interested in the SteelSeries Free controller since it is compatible with both iOS and Android but that sucker is $80. I game more on my SGS3 anyway so hell yea.

I ordered one, but now after reading the reviews, I am not so sure....

The software is just plain unsatisfactory. Since the device does not use the standard Bluetooth HID profile it requires the Pivot app to relay controller commands to games. This means that only a small handfull of integrated games can use the device. Since I like using my purchased hardware in the ways I would like I ended up writing the MOGA Universal Driver that can be found on Google Play. With that the device is useable and enjoyable, even considering its hardware shortcomings.

Report back when you guys get it. This could be cool especially since I hate playing GTA on my tablet with the on screen controls.

Free is free, and thanks to you (or whoever developed this) we can unlock it's true potential. Can't wait to play Sonic Megamix on my phone with this controller.
