Last year Logitech launched PowerShell, an Apple authorized gaming controller for iPhone and iPod touch, in the US market. Today, the company has launched the controller in India and it is available with a price tag of Rs 8,995.
The PowerShell is compatible with the iPhone 5S, the iPhone 5 and the iPod touch running on iOS 7. The controller adds a physical D-pad, four control buttons and shoulder buttons to one’s device and is targeted at gamers who detest on-screen game controls. Unlike the traditional gaming controllers though, the PowerShell lacks joysticks. In addition to the providing console-type controllers, the PowerShell also includes a battery pack of 1,500mAh.
This isn’t the only smartphone gaming controller you can get in India today. Back in December, Samsung launched the GamePad for its Galaxy devices, while the Mogo Pro gaming controller is compatible with most of the Android smartphones.
