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.

Used the adding 00-99 trick and found mine. It will be here on Jan 2. The numbers I needed couldn't have been 00 either. I had to go to 73. So for the people still wondering what is up with there tracking that the 5 mins and do it and you will get some piece of mind that it is actually on the way. Even if they might as well be sending it by toy poodle.
I tried that, but I think my existing tracking number is valid. But FedEx still reports that they only received the shipping information.

Anyone get the download code for Modern Combat 4 ZH to work on an LG Nexus 4? Mine says game is not available for your device at this time. Kinda lame since google play reports that it works.
I'm having the same issue with this. Has anyone had any luck?

Edit: I got the download to work by changing the user agent on my computer to a Galaxy S3, and then transferring the file to my phone.

Thanks. I did it with the Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Its a default in chrome) since I was too lazy to dig out the code for the S3. Downloading now. Hopefully I don't get some lame low res version.

Just got mine and very happy with it. I canlt believe this only cost me $5. Thanks again OP! There is a universal driver on the app store that works with many more games and emulators through key mapping. It works automatically on many games like GTA 3 if you are rooted.

Just make sure to unsync the controller from the official app before you use it or it wont work.

I live in PA and FedEx still hasn't updated the tracking information. The destination states my city, so I assume I have the right tracking number. I spoke to 2 different analysts today at PowerA. The latter one said that his supervisor is still deciding how to handle those who haven't receive their controllers yet. They might be shipping new out new orders, but it will take at least a day for them to reach a decision. I asked if they will use SmartPost and he said that is all they are setup to use as their shipper.

im really liking their customer support, its not even their fault we haven't gotten ours yet. i blame fedex/usps, seems like smart post is a giant cluster....

So it's working for you? Mine lasts about 3 minutes before it becomes unbelievably laggy, ignores some inputs while receiving others as a continuous press when I'm only quickly pushing a button. I disconnect and reconnect it and once again its great for about 3 minutes.

might be your phone hardware or skin that makes it laggy (touchwiz, sense, etc)


its flawless on my nexus 4 (quadcore, 2gb ram) with vanilla android 4.2

No problems on my droid 4... Might need to contact PowerA and ask what they think.

Yup, finally got a reply to my email. They said to call and process a warranty exchange since mine appears to be defective.
