MOGA, the first and only complete mobile gaming system for Android devices, will be available in stores and at online retailers in the U.S. on October 21, 2012. The MOGA Mobile Gaming System will come with the free downloadable MOGA Pivot App, and a soft case. Also, with the purchase of MOGA, consumers will get two free games, Sonic CD and PAC-MAN by NAMCO as part of a limited time offer at leading retailers. MOGA will be available at key videogame and mobility retailers for a suggested retail price of $49.99 USD. I’m not going to lie, I have some serious concerns about this system and don’t really feel like there is a huge market for this kind of thing. Whatever uniqueness this might have had, it has now been firmly overshadowed by all the Ouya hype. The price point is attractive so I expect they will move some units, I just don’t think they will move enough of them
Top publishers such as Gameloft, Atari, Namco Bandai, Sega, Remedy Entertainment and more have committed to developing games that will work with MOGA. New games, developers and publishers and game titles are coming on board each month. Gameloft, for example, has added MOGA support to key titles such as The Dark Knight Rises HD, Asphalt 7: Heat HD and Dungeon Hunter 3. Console developer Remedy’s critically acclaimed title Death Rally has also been enhanced to work with MOGA.
The MOGA system will initially support Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and higher mobile devices. So who’s planning to pick this up? Hit up the comments and tell us why.
