Giveaway – MOGA Pro Power

Up for grabs this week is a MOGA Pro Power. Now, you’ve seen my thoughts on the MOGA Pro, the Xbox-like controller used for Android smartphones and tablets to give players the ability to get rid of the awful on-screen controls and instead use a legitimate piece of hardware.
