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.

Damn, hopefully they aren't out of stock.
I guess i'm not sure. I already ordered one, but got that error when I put another one in my cart to see if you could get more than one (FAQ says no). So maybe if you haven't ordered one already it's still good. I'm still waiting on my confirmation email though, but the site is pretty slow now so it could just be getting SD'd

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.
Just saw that after I ordered it, I'm glad that someone created this universal app. With that app I can't say anything bad about it so far, free is free.

nothing, just the confirmation number
Yeah, same here - no email & if I go to my order history on their site I get "no orders found".

I knew I should've written down the confirmation number.

That bugged me as well but I know why they did it that way. Nearly ALL HTC phones have their own form of HID drivers that simply don't work with most advanced bluetooth devices, such as controllers. I'm assuming they went this route to keep the hardware compatible with more devices at the sacrifice of game compatibility.

But as someone else mentioned, thanks to you (apparently) we have the full potential! (hopefully, if they work with HTC and their Sense-infused phones.)

No it doesn't, you can just get APK's off the web anyways. For $5 this is worth it in any aspect you look at it.
