New Controller Turns Compatible Devices into Mobile Gaming Consoles; Roughly Doubles Battery Life

Logitech, a leading innovator of gaming peripherals, today introduced the Logitech® PowerShell™ Controller + Battery – providing console-style game controls and increasing game play-time on your iPhone 5s, iPhone 5, or iPod touch (5th generation) running iOS 7.

To use this first-of-its-kind mobile gaming console, you simply insert your compatible iPhone or iPod touch into the controller as you would with a standard case. The analog off-screen controls of the Logitech PowerShell Controller + Battery deliver a gaming experience that’s familiar to console players everywhere, with a D-pad, shoulder triggers and face buttons that allow you to control game play.

“We designed this controller to deliver a true console-gaming experience on an iOS 7 mobile device,” said Yousef Atwan , Country Manager of Logitech South Africa “With gaming so pervasive on the mobile platform – our research shows that 87% of iPhone and iPod touch users play games on their device – it’s time to revolutionise the experience.”
With your iPhone or iPod touch in the controller, you’ll maintain full access to power on/off, volume, camera, speakers, headphone jack and charging. And your controller’s 1500 mAh battery increases the battery capacity of your iPhone 5s, iPhone 5 or fifth-generation iPod touch. Plus, you can recharge both batteries without removing the phone from the controller.

The controller is compatible with the iOS 7 game controller framework for which a long and rapidly growing list of popular games are supported, including Bastion, Fast & Furious 6: The Game, MetalStorm Aces, Galaxy On Fire 2™ HD and Nitro™ among others available from the App Store.

The Logitech PowerShell Controller + Battery are expected to be available in South Africa, February 2014 at the retail price of R1699.
