We have reported about Logitech’s gamepad for iPhone when it was leaked online, and now the iOS-compliant controller is now ready to roll out the market.
The Logitech Powershell not only works as a gaming controller for your iOS devices, but is also a battery pack for double the game time. Pop your device right in the middle of the controller and it becomes a pocket-sized handheld console.
This gadget works like an ordinary smartphone case, but its physical buttons–including a directional pad, shoulder triggers, and face buttons–would indicate this is no ordinary decorative case. The Powershell also contains a 1,500mAh battery, which is as good as a full charge on an iPhone. It works with a long list of games (and still growing) that are available in the App Store, including Lego Lord of the Rings, Bastion, Galaxy on Fire 2, and Limbo.
The Logitech Powershell works with the iPhone 5 and 5S, as well as the 5th-generation iPod Touch, all of which should be running on iOS 7. It is now available for pre-order at Apple’s Online Store and Best Buy for $99.99, which will be shipped in December.
