T-Mobile teases MOGA Gaming System for Android phones, Note II comes with an optimized game
It looks like T-Mobile is prepping up to start offering a new accessory that will make gamers go wild. We're talking about the MOGA Mobile Gaming System, which should soon be sold in T-Mobile stores.

The MOGA Gaming system is a Bluetooth game controller with dual analog sticks, buttons, as well as shoulder buttons that should be perfectly enough to control any game out there as long as it's optimized. Speaking about optimization, T-Mobile informs us that its version of the Galaxy Note II scheduled to arrive later this year will come with a preloaded racing game that'll include three free levels. This game, T-Mobile says, will be optimized to work with the MOGA Gaming System.

This is all cool, of course, but we really doubt it that a trial version of a game, be it one optimized for a controller, will be much of a motivation for users to buy the device. If they are doing so it'll be because of the large screen, fast processor or something like that.

Otherwise, we hope that companies around the world will continue developing the area of mobile gaming, and who knows, we might even see a standard for mobile game controllers some day!

In case you're wondering, T-Mobile is yet to announce a release date for the MOGA controller.

Here we go. Put all those cores and all that ram to work. I can't wait to see real games; same caliber of Xbox and PC.

I dont know if we will see that caliber of game anytime soon on a phone just because of the exorbitant costs of making a AAA console game vs how little most mobile games sell for. But, the power is pretty much there. With the introduction of true A15 chips, comes the literal power of the Xbox360/PS3 in your phone.

Well, imagine 3 billion android phones and almost billion iPhones..selling an heavily budgeted high end game for a few bucks starts to look feasible.. lucrative even

I'd hope so, the 360 is 7 years old next month. I moved on to PC gaming mainly lately because the consoles are just out of date. Well still got my PS3 and 360, just got RE6 on PS3, but haven't played it all that much, maybe 6 hours worth.

If anything, this might give those handhelds (Nintendo DS/PS Vita) some competition.

The ouya should take care of all of this for me. Until you can somehow add copious amounts of space to a phone( no matter what not enough through sd, then its a little far fetched and doesn't really hold much merit.) Real gamers who would bother buying a controller like this will agree. Nice article though, a little healthy competition is nice.

It holds the phone in place with an adjustable bracket for one thing - pretty nifty.
