Your iPhone can now be transformed into a small gaming console with the launch of specialized gaming controllers. MOGA's $99 Ace Power controller is the first authorized Made for iPhone gaming controller to hit the market after iOS 7 has introduced support for dedicated controllers.

The MOGA Ace Power is compatible with Apple's 4-inch Lightning-connected devices: The iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, and fifth-generation iPod touch. It has a 1,800mAh battery, includes two joysticks, a D-pad, front-facing A, B, X and Y buttons, and L1, R1, L2 and R2 shoulder buttons.

Logitech's official iOS-compatible PowerShell controller was launched a day after the MOGA Ace Power at the same price of $99. The PowerShell gaming controller from Logitech comes equipped with a D-Pad on the left side and A, B, X, and Y face buttons on the right with shoulder buttons on the top of the controller. It has a smaller 1500 mAh battery than the Ace Power.

Ehtisham Rabbani, general manager of the Logitech gaming business, said the following:

We designed this controller to deliver a true console-gaming experience on an iOS 7 mobile device. With gaming so pervasive on the mobile platform — our research shows that 87 percent of iPhone and iPod touch users play games on their device — it's time to revolutionize the experience.

Would you be interesting in acquiring such a gadget or you think your fingers are good enough?
