Several tidbits about Apple's upcoming "Made for iPhone" (MFi) gaming controllers leaked out over the weekend, revealing a few new details about products from both MOGA and Logitech. According to a tweet from @evleaks, Logitech's upcoming controller, which was revealed in photos in October, will be called the Powershell, while MOGA's controller is the MOGA Ace Power.
MOGA's upcoming Ace Power controller was accidentally unveiled in a YouTube video over the weekend (via TouchArcade), after images of the controller first leaked last week. While the original images depicted a traditional d-pad along with dual thumbsticks, the video confirms the controller also includes R1/R2 and L1/L2 buttons located at the top.
The trailer also provides a clear picture of the controller's sizing, both with an iPhone inside and while closed. The controller will support the iPhone 5, the 5c, the 5s, and the fifth-generation iPod touch, and while pricing details hqve not been confirmed, initial pricing leaks have pointed to a $99 price tag.
While there is no prospective release date available for the MFi controllers, the increasingly frequent product leaks suggest that they could come before the end of the year, possibly in mid-November.
