Act Quick: $50 MOGA Gaming Controller and Modern Combat 4 For Free

PowerA, the sellers of the MOGA gaming controller for Android, are offering a special deal on a limited supply of controllers. For a very limited time, you can get a new $50 controller, coupled with Gameloft’s Modern Combat 4 for free. All you have to do is pay shipping and handling. Awesome, right? The controller attaches to your device, turning any phone into a portable gaming system.

Once on the site, add the controller to your cart, then apply the coupon code, “SecretSanta.” You better hurry!

Coupon Code: SecretSanta

Update:  We crashed the PowerA site for the MOGA, so they temporarily took it down. They are assuring customers that the deal is still on, though, and that they have extended it:

Wow! You must really like MOGA!
Don’t worry, the deal is still on.

We have temporarily taken down PowerA.com due to the overwhelming response.

Please check back as we will be back in business shortly!

Didn’t get your order in? Don’t worry, we will be extending the offer.

Update 2:  The site is back up! They have apparently extended the sale until tomorrow, assuming their stock lasts that long.

Cheers Nick!

    has anyone gotten the free copy of MC4 to work with the MOGA? i downloaded it and all, but see no option to use the MOGA….?????

  • storm35x

    Got this delivered today. Modern Combat 4 isnt included in the free downloads. You get pacman and sonic CD and that is it

  • Terrance Steiner

    It is a better deal if you buy it at Toys R Us for $39.99 and than buy the game on the Play Store. I saw it there when I was Christmas shopping for my niece and nephew.


  • edimistra

    COde expired. So the promotion didn’t go until today.

  • [email protected]

    those rats say promo has expired.. the old bait and switch

  • JoshGroff

    Not working, guess I have to settle for my sixaxis controller.

  • So much for extending the promotion for us. Deal is dead on their site. Assholes.

  • SCORE!

  • Tried this morning, no joy, said the promotion had ended.

  • The promotion code “SECRETSANTA” could not be applied because the promotion has expired. I has a sadface 🙁

    • JoshGroff

      Could just be that they didn’t update it, I’m gonna check back later.

  • nobody

    “The promotion code “SECRETSANTA” could not be applied because the promotion has expired.”

  • Wyveryx

    No Fair….It’s not even tomorrow and the code doesn’t work anymore according to their site…

    Either they ran out of stock, or changed their minds.

    • steveliv

      they didn’t run out of stock, but ran out of the allotted number set aside for this promo

      • Wyveryx

        Then it would have been nice for them to at least have posted that last night 🙁

  • Cgmartin33

    Got it for $5.32 shipped after some persistence. Just wondering how to get Modern Warfare?!

    • The code comes inside the package of your shipped controller. And the game is Modern Combat, not Warfare

  • EvanTheGamer

    A few hours ago I was able to place an order! But It was right after I had to take off, so I didn’t know if it went through or not as I never received any confirmation e-mail.

    Then later on when I got back(just now), I checked my View Orders section of my Account on the PowerA site, and low and behold, my recent MOGA Controller order was there! HELL yeah!

    Only $5.33, too. Freakin’ awesome! Just glad all of that patiently waiting to no end payed off!

    Thanks Droid-Life, and the entire Android community for keeping everyone up to date on exactly wtf was going on with the slowest site known to man!

  • Alexander H

    OOS….”code expired”…..so much for we’ll be good for later…

  • Steven Gonz

    Just tried to purchase one, as of 12-13-12 11:10pm eastern time. The promotion code “SecretSanta” could not be applied because the promotion has expired.

  • Weak. Promotion has expired…

  • steveliv

    PowerA is saying that if you copied down your confirmation code on the website and don’t get email, you can still get the deal.

    • TheOiulkj

      Any idea what we do with the code? Do we need to take any action if we have a code and no email?

      Also, for those who didn’t write it down, just check your history for the “order complete” page on powera.

      • steveliv

        check their twitter page

  • steveliv

    got one earlier this evening when the site came back up. got the confirmation email and it is showing in my order history. awesome deal!

  • mrredpants

    Says coupon code has expired

  • Got one, i think the wife will love this

  • Circushair

    Most have run out. “The promotion code “SECRETSANTA” could not be applied because the promotion has expired.”

  • Finally got mine ordered. Checked my email after site crashed and I have a email confirmation. Thanks DL!!!!

  • TankerTufff

    Item is in stock but site says promotion expired when I enter coupon code

    • Aaron

      Me too. Booooo, PowerA, Booooo.

  • sporttster

    Here is what MOGA is saying:
    What a day! The response from our fans was huge, and we have exhausted our supply of free systems. Thank you for your support. For those who were not able to participate, don’t be sad. Santa still has something in his bag for you! Stay tuned (Facebook) for more details.

    • sporttster

      Guess that would be PowerAMobility, not MOGA….oops….

  • drkylecArchvile

    so its been 2 hours im worried that my order did not go through even though i was given a confimation number hopeing to hear back from customer support soon about it.

    • If you have the confirmation number, you are good. Confirm email not needed. Posted on MOGA and PowerA’s official twitter pages

  • sporttster

    Just got my email. Hour or so.

    • Took you a hour to get the confirmation email?

      • sporttster

        Sorry…went back and looked at when I posted about ordering and it’s actually been two hours.

        • Ok, I am sitting here anxiously awaiting mine. Got a confirmation number so I’m praying I’m ok

  • I got mine!!!!

  • Nishant Junankar

    it says the promo code expired..

  • sporttster

    Reading up on this controller a bit and it looks like the software that comes with it is crap and only works with a handful of games. One user wrote a app/software that lets the controller work with most any game and emulator. It’s called MOGA Universal Driver. Might want to make note of this when you get the controller.

  • So much BS, i went there added to my my cart, entered the code and it worked, registered my user, picked my shipping then on the confirm screen it added back the original cost, then tired to reapply the code and it says it expired. this was less than 30 seconds total time.

  • Dan Lopez

    It’s been like almost two hours. Where mah email?!?!?!

  • sporttster

    With so many people getting one of these, I figure I’ll get mine about this time next year….

  • Bionic

    Got mine and screen shotted the confirmation

  • Captain_Doug

    Got it!

  • Bionic

    Does this controller work with any game?

  • Got mine!

  • TheOiulkj

    Does anyone know what that game is in the picture? I looked all over their website but it doesn’t mention anything about it.

  • Bionic

    Dammit the Site won’t load!

  • David Rando

    got mine!!! thanks Droid-life for the heads up about this deal, you guys are one of my daily go to’s.

  • kervation

    Just ordered mine. Just got a confirmation number but no email yet. Saw the previous posts that said it might take an hour for the email.

  • hatboysam

    Order went through, but no confirmation email. Anyone get the same behavior?

    • Brandon Nesky

      i did not…i’m sure they were hit hard…i have a confirmation number though

      • hatboysam

        I’ve got the number but no email…. rats.

        • Brandon Nesky

          i think it’ll be okay…give it a little

          • Brandon Nesky

            reading cheapassgamer.com, someone said confirmation emails are taking a few hours

        • SchwannyT

          They said on the twitter page that it could take up to an hour…..

          • Brandon Nesky

            yep, just read about that on cheapassgamer.com, thanks for the reply

    • EvanTheGamer

      Yep…same exact thing occurred. Placed the order, got the order #, and then received no confirmation email. Also checked Orders page and no recent orders are there. Weird.

      • hatboysam

        Yeah same for me. Hopefully they are just having trouble clearing their email queue or something. I saved the Order # just in case.

        • sporttster

          Same, been awhile no email…

        • EvanTheGamer

          I was heading out as I placed the order so I didn’t have time to save the blasted Order #! I bet that’ll be my downfall in terms of not getting this controller for 5 freakin’ bucks! Lame! But tis life. lol

        • EvanTheGamer

          Scratch that…I just now checked out my Orders section of my account on the site and it looks like my order did in fact get placed! HELL yeah! All of that waiting wasn’t for nothing! YES! $5.33 for a freakin’ Android game controller with a few free games! SCORE!

      • Bionic

        I screen shotted my confirmation

    • hatboysam

      Got my email. Just took a while. Damn I’m so impatient.

  • Brandon Nesky

    scored mine…longest i waited on a page was no more than 15 seconds…i must have hit it at the right time

    • hatboysam

      Did you get a confirmation email?

      • Brandon Nesky

        i did not, i got a confirmation number though

    • Steevka

      Same! Makes that 2 hours earlier today seem kind of pointless. Well, very pointless.

      • Brandon Nesky

        agreed, tried earlier at work and it wouldnt even load…tried 15 minutes ago, no issues at al

  • Warwick

    Thank you for your order.

    Your order has been submitted and you should receive a confirmation email shortly.Your order number is **********

  • Jon

    right on! finally got it ordered $4.95

  • hatboysam

    Got mine! Took about 10 minutes total.

  • Anyone try to get more than one?

    • Nevermind, 1 per customer 😉 I suppose my mom could buy one too. And my brother. And my cat.

  • Took a while, but got mine ordered. $5.36 I believe is what it came out to. Thanks for the heads up.

  • peterjang73

    Got me one!! You just have to bare with it!!

  • Goose306

    Mine’s in. $4.95 (no tax here) steal along with the unlock app. Gonna use the crap outta this with my S3 and N7 with N64/Super/Gameboy emulators…

    • joejoe5709

      I read somewhere that it won’t fit the N7 but I’m sure you could just prop it up and use the bluetooth function. I am also very curious how this will work with emulators. Did a little quick research and it doesn’t look too difficult.

  • Yes! Got one ordered. Took a bit but it was way faster than before their server went down!

  • Woohoo got my order in just now!

  • I ordered on not showing in my order history, but I do have the number so we will see how this plays out.

    • Ok I just got my confirmation email on it now!

    • Neither is mine…No conf email as of yet (ordered about 20 mins ago). Like you said…We will see.

      • and just received confirmation email

  • Sporttster

    Order just placed and done!! $5 and some change…killer deal….

  • Woo hoo! Ordered mine. 🙂

  • joejoe5709

    AAAAANNNNDDD We’re back. I’ve already ordered mine. 🙂 Took a whole 7 minutes I think. Have at it boys!

  • It’s now back on!

  • Site is back up guys

  • It’s like a Bandolier of Carrots went up during a woot off. Somebody needs to get some better servers.

  • Sporttster

    <—-waiting patiently for site to come back up….

  • Steven Harper

    Android is Google open source!

  • Got mine before the crash. What a deal. I ordered a Steelseries mobile controller for my son to go with his N7 Christmas gift. I was waiting to see how it worked before getting one for me, but didn’t have to!!!!! Thanks for the tip Droid Life!

  • SlapNuts

    order placed 🙂 email confirmation confirms

  • looks like the site is done now…but i guess it will be back up later?

  • Bauce40

    Got my confirmation email so I’m good to go. I’m amazed they still have any of these left, can’t beat $5 for this controller and MC4!

  • Just got mine only took about 10 minutes for everything, since they are so bogged down !!!

  • duke69111

    I was one step from entering my cc when they took it down. Dang it

  • jimingo

    I want the last hour of my life back.

  • Andrew

    Forget Anonymous. Droid Life takes websites down quicker!

  • Glen

    PowerA site is down due to overwhelming demand. Deal is still on and will be extended. They will be back online when possible. I have mine in the shopping cart on my account, just haven’t finished checkout.

    • Shimamasu

      I was exactly at the point after trying for more than a couple dozen times….

    • Jon


      C’est la vie

  • Larry Franks

    Just got this:

    Wow! You must really like MOGA!
    Don’t worry, the deal is still on.

    We have temporarily taken down PowerA.com due to the overwhelming

    Please check back as we will be back in business shortly!

    Didn’t get your order in? Don’t worry, we will be extending the offer.

  • kuboo99

    It looks like the site is totally down now. Shoot.

  • Kyle Way

    MOGA is officially down.

  • Jon

    ok. Not comical anymore…grrrr

  • Just got that

  • Kal5el

    Website taken down. 3:17 Eastern

  • shehippie

    Here is what I just got after 60 mins of trying…

    • Kyle Way

      Consider yourself lucky that you only wasted an hour… I’ve been trying since Noon EST with no luck….

  • Aaaand… They took down the site. Lol.

  • drkylecArchvile

    We encountered an error while processing your request…NOOOOO also apparently they are down

  • Got in, got it in my cart, crated new account and now nothing in my cart!!!!

  • po

    Over two hours of trying and the store is just erroring out constantly still

  • Figured it out, give away these controllers and announce a new and better contoller next Monday.

    • Buckoman

      Doesn’t matter. Free controller.

  • James

    I’ve never posted a comment on this site before but I felt today should be the day: I WAITED TWO HOURS BUT FINALLY GOT ONE! its quite sad that an hour of my life is worth less than a happy meal

    • Jon

      Don’t feel bad. I’m headed on 2 hours.

  • jmack

    FINALLY, just got my confirmation email.

  • Jon

    i just got kicked clear out to the sign-in page from the enter credit card screen. It’s almost comical now.

    • Steevka

      Was about to confirm my order when I got logged off and sent back to the homepage. Comical indeed.

      • steevka

        And now they shut down the site. Well at least they’re good sports about it and are extending the offer.

  • Kevin Faaborg

    Literally took 110 min (After all the server issues and slowness). But I was able to get it (after shipping and tax: $5.25)! I almost would have been fine with the Original Sonic CD Game instead, but i’ll take either!

  • It keeps crashing for me after i put my cc info in…a little worried it is gonna charge me like 5 times…

  • Marc Cohen

    Just got mine…. thanks…. when you’re on the site, click and then relax it eventually goes through.

  • Joseph Joffe

    Think the site is DEAD dead – getting nothing but HTTP Error 503 on all browsers now …

    • steevka

      back up!

      • Jon

        still trying to load credit card info page…foweva

      • Joseph Joffe

        Yeah – now I have it in my shopping cart twice somehow, but can’t check out …

  • Tom Dwenger

    i was able to get through the entire checkout process and got my confirmation number, but still waiting on email confirmation. Also seems site is down for good now

  • Warwick

    Adding to cart load death ):

  • BSweetness

    Well, after two hours of waiting on page after page to load, my order finally went through.

    The things I’ll do for something I’ll probably use a few times and then forget about.

  • Justin W

    I ended up just saying screw it and bought it from Best Buy. I’ve been looking at getting something like this, and I wish PowerA had the skills of Apple so I could have gotten it nearly free, but oh well. After spending over an hour trying to buy the dam thing for free, I might as well have just paid outright for it.

    • WHut

      2 hours of sitting = $50?

      I wish I got paid $25/hour to browse XDA and Reddit while clicking refresh every few minutes.

      • Justin W

        Hey I value my time lol

  • I think the site is down for the count now. Haven’t made any progress in almost a half hour.

    • DanSan

      yup. think so. we can pronounce her dead. lol

  • DanSan

    haha, i entered my account info, added my billing info and clicked which shipping. brought me to a “page cannot be found” error lol.

    might just grab a PS3 controller with a gameklip

    • Same here. Made it all the way to the “place order” button and after sitting for a few minutes displayed the “this webpage is not available”

      • DanSan

        i did a few refreshes and finally got the credit card input page!!! hopefully this works

  • DroidBricker

    Got one through, finally! Used my work computer, my laptop tethered to my phone, and my angry wife … work computer won! Wife’s angry I wasted her time, but it’s worth it!

    • thanks for taking up 3 slots in line….

      • DroidBricker

        Technically it was only 2, got the coupons in for all 3 and maybe could have checked out with 3 different accounts but I got the 1 I wanted and let the others go.

    • duke69111

      How long did it take you to get though? 🙂

  • Bobby Cornwell

    Dammit Tim! Why’d you have to post this and flood their servers? Bet you got yours before you posted this article

  • Bigwavedave25

    Ha! Finally got the site to load… common registration!!!

    Let’s see where I can get in first… work ISP, or Verizon 4g…???

    • Bigwavedave25

      Work ISP, is the winner, but now the site is down!!! Arr

  • joejoe5709

    I think you killed their site, Tim. Haha

  • I’m about ready to give up myself. Been trying for an hour, I got as far as adding it to my cart, applying the coupon code, selecting new account, getting my account set up, being dumped back into the main page (so annoying!), and now I’m still waiting to proceed to check out.

    It’s been an hour. Ugh.

    • Jon

      I’m somewhere between shipping info and shipping options

    • Jon

      After 4 failed page reloads, I just selected shipping method! Still good sign

  • Jon

    This must be what it feels like waiting in line at an Apple store 😉

    • ArrowCool

      Is that where you get the apps?

    • Neighbo


  • ArrowCool

    Wow, really?!
    It boots you back to the main page after you set up an account in checkout…

  • Sorry, the controller looks shoddy, the $30 Gametal controller seems like a better buy.

    • hkklife

      Nah, I played with one of these 2x at ToysRUs (they got demo kiosk units in about a month ago, they are mated to 7″ Galaxy Tab 2’s) and I must admit that I was really impressed with the controller (at least playing Sonic CD). It feels and looks much better in person than in the pictures.

      Glad to see they are extending the offer but I am not holding my breath. I wasted my lunch hour (plus some extra) trying in vain to order one and it kept timing out. Personally, I’d rather just get the controller for a non-“free” price ($10 or so) through normal means and then be able to get MC4 via Google Play for $1 instead of having to deal with redemption from Gameloft’s store. Still, I’ll try to score one of these if/when the deal goes live again as I have been waiting and waiting for the perfect tablet BT gamepad to come along.

  • Bobby Cornwell

    Ok so I created an account and now it is stuck at the proceed to checkout screen

    • Jon

      unfortunately, you have a long way to go still.

  • Cant even access the site…too much traffic!

    Ugh…im too late to this party..what a great deal too

  • Bobby Cornwell


    • No problem, as soon as I have mine I’ll save you my space.

      • Bobby Cornwell

        Thanks man! =P

      • Steevka

        Everyone just get off their page for a minute, I’ll order 99 of them, and ship them all out to you lovely people when I get them. I promise.

  • oh no, im at checkout…wonder if i can still get it or not….

    • Jon

      wondering myself. Still trying

  • R started trying at 30 comments

  • EvanTheGamer

    Someone just said the controller is ALL SOLD OUT. Nooooooooo! What a waste of time.

    Guess I’ll just have to settle for my iMpulse Controller that I pre-ordered via Kickstarter awhile ago.

  • mjmedstarved

    I think I’d just rather have the $15 GameKlip to pair my PS3 controller with my phone..

  • Aaron

    Just threw in the towel. Got to go. Damn.

  • EvanTheGamer

    Slowest. Site. Ever.” –Comicbook Guy

  • DroidBricker

    I love having my credit card info on the screen for so long!

  • steveliv

    this is on slickdeals, so that will drop the probability of getting the deal by a lot!

  • I have been stuck on the confirmation screen after clicking Place Order for 30 minutes now… Hopefully it will go through!!1

  • steveliv

    now entering my shipping information…

  • EvanTheGamer

    I honestly have a feeling all of this waiting will be for nothing. I keep thinking that each time a new comment comes in, “Show One New Comment”, someone will say, “ALL SOLD OUT!”

    That or when I refresh this post, there will be an edit saying, “UPDATE: All Sold Out!

    • Jon

      lol…was having the same thoughts

      • EvanTheGamer

        Seriously! I hate that feeling. I really hate it…so…damn…much!

        • Jon

          2 failed page loads in a row. maybe their down for the count?

          • EvanTheGamer

            Hate to say it, but someone just chimed in stating that when they applied the code, it came back with “The promotion code “SECRETSANTA” could not be applied because the promotional item is no longer available.”

            DAMNIT ALL TO HELL!

  • steevka

    Anyone else reminded of dial-up AOL right now?

    • EvanTheGamer

      Yes, and Net Zero. hahahah!

      • Aaron

        PeoplePC. They were terrible.

    • Prodigy more like it. And that ran faster then this site is right now.

  • Still at it

  • Justin W

    I’ve been going through the process for about 30 minutes now and am finally on the “Sign in to your Account” page. Too bad I actually have to create an account 🙁

  • Aaron

    Am I on the right page? I went to PowerA but it says the controller comes with Sonic CD and PacMan.

    • EvanTheGamer

      Yes, you are on the right page.

      I hope!

  • NorCalGuy

    Can everyone get off so I can get mine real quick

    • EvanTheGamer

      I wish.

      • NorCalGuy

        Ooo just created an account… Now have to delete the second controller from my shopping cart and then check out… This has to be the longest I have spent buying anything.

        • EvanTheGamer

          Same here. Same here.

          • NorCalGuy

            I got one!! Only 10 min this time

  • onDroid

    Well, I guess I’ll spend the next 4 hours at work watching this page load.

  • Steelerman

    Thanks Droid Life! It took a hour but I got one!

  • Joe Minarik

    Ordered mine about an hour ago. Site was slow, but I was able to place my order all the way through. Can’t wait for it to arrive!! Good luck to those still trying.

    • EvanTheGamer

      Still trying…still loading…still waiting…

      Gotta drive to the valley in a bit..hope I’m able to place an order soon.

      • Joe Minarik

        Keep trying!!!!

        • EvanTheGamer

          I’m a tryin’! I’m at the Shipping Address section, so three more sections to go and I’ll have mine ordered! Come on PowerA!

          • Joe Minarik

            Haha…the home stretch!!!

          • steevka

            “Failed to load” on the Shipping Options screen for me; you’re not in the clear yet!

    Got through the to log in, then error message.

  • Damn:

    The promotion code “SECRETSANTA” could not be applied because the promotional item is no longer available.

    The promotion “SAVEME10 – 10% Off customer discount” could not be applied or is no longer available.

  • Lamar Sumner

        Yup, on 3 different pc’s and 3 different ISP’s.

        • Jon

          that’s power shopping. Reminds me of back when I used to bid on ebay.

          • EvanTheGamer

            Those were the days!

        now I’ve got to create an account!!! I feel like I’m on a 1200 baud modem.

          Feels like 28.8. lol “Back in the day we used 56k modems, son, you guys have it way too easy!” “Oh, really? What’s a 56k modem?!” “Never mind about that, it was WAY before your time.”

      • Me 3 lol

    • Jon

      my god. each tab on the checkout is a pageload. Good grief!

      • EvanTheGamer

        Same here. Each section looks like it’s gonna take 30 minutes.

        Damnit. I really want to get one, but I gotta head out soon. Sh*t!


  • DroidBricker

    This is how it was trying to score a Touchpad!

  • Andrew Remmers

    Loading. Loading.

  • PhillipNorris

    Was trying to add coupon code and crashedl…trying again

    • PhillipNorris

      So I didn’t know what “FACKWORS” was so i copy/pasted google searched it. I then Pasted the same word into the coupon code field instead of SecretSanta. FACKWORS!

  • Tommy

    You’d think by now that anyone in e-commerce would know to prepare for traffic in response to spikes in demand.

  • da

    How do you know if your order went through? Do you receive a confirmation email? I haven’t received an email yet

    • Joe Minarik

      Placed my order about two hours ago and just received my e-mail confirmation.

  • cant get one cause load time is to long. Dang. I really wanted this 2 start rated fine piece of equipment.

  • Michael swaim


  • Tony Allen

    Site is down down.. wasn’t able to get one. Sucks ass. Oh well, I’ll keep using my Wii Classic Controller Pro..

  • DanWazz

    Damn, halfway done and the site crashes. Bumsky.

  • Justin W

    Website’s being extremely slow… This reminds me of trying to purchase my Nexus 4.

  • summit1986

    Forget it! I give up. I’m happy with my SixAxis and GameKlip anyway

    • EvanTheGamer

      For a mere $5 and a few free games…it’s worth the time that it may take to order one of these beasts. Even an hour.

      • That was my thought heh. $5 for an $8 game and a $50 controller. Win.

        • EvanTheGamer

          Hell yeah! I’m checking out now…just gotta get to Payment section then Confirm section, and then BAM!

    • mustbepbs

      Agreed. This controller doesn’t even look comfortable.

  • Jon

    uggg. can’t even get to my cart. Problem loading page

  • Nick S

    …aaannd site crashed.

    This webpage is not available.


  • So close, c’mon website….

  • Got one! Hurray! Site is really slow but worked eventually. $5 shipping not a bad deal.

  • just entered the code…. still loading….still loading….

  • anezarati

    does google run their distribution? haha

    • joe00111

      Game Over

      • Not for me. Got a “connection lost” an hour ago after I clicked Place Order. Just got an email from PowerA though saying my order was placed. Check your inbox!

        • Alberto Hamade

          Same here

        • Brandal Wagener

          It says my order was confirmed and I have my order number but I’m still waiting for my email… very impatiently

          • bigachx

            Same here! Whats worse is when I check order history in my account nothing shows up. And when I check my credit card transactions online nothing about this shows up! Now I’m nervous! lol

          • Joe

            Same here. Hoping my order was placed. Made sure to keep my order number just in case!

          • As long as you have the order number, the promotion will be honored. Stated on PowerA and MOGAanywhere twitter accts

          • They stated on their Twitter that as long as you have your order number, they will honor the promotion, so you dont necessarily need the confirm email

    • iScream4

      Site is back up, FYI

      • I’m having “Code Expired”… Am I the only one?

        • Chris Kelly

          Same here. Bummer.

          • Alexander H

            Looks like their reassurance runs dry…..had one in checkout before site went kaput.

    • ramifications

      They said it’s extended till tomorrow…but really…this is what I have been getting when trying to buy it:

      “The promotion code “SECRETSANTA” could not be applied because the promotion has expired.”


      • PuzzleShot

        While supplies last. People bought out said supplies before noon.

        • meetloaf13

          Not true, I got in right after it went back up and placed an order succesfully.

  • meetloaf13

    Stinks that you have to use their proprietary app-storishness to play games with this beast…what are the odds this is hacked so we can use it for our emulators?

  • go to the promotion code part, then it timed out…trying again

  • Captain_Doug

    Taking forever…

  • steveliv

    site is super slow but i’m working my way through the process…

  • DBK

    Aw yeah. Paying $5.30 for a $50 controller = priceless.

    Thanks Kellex for the heads up…..to bad you killed the site in the process.

    • EvanTheGamer

      Damnit! I’m so close yet so far away from checkout. Wish I had acted quicker!

      • DBK

        Keep the faith! You can do it!

        • EvanTheGamer

          Yes sir!

      • Tony Allen

        Don’t feel bad, I acted within 45 seconds and I still couldn’t/can’t get through.

        • EvanTheGamer

          Thanks for that. I’ll keep trying and trying. $5 is extremely difficult to pass up. And with a few free games to boot. Can’t pass that up!

        • Bob O’Daniel

          Ditto. I’m going to keep trying myself, though. For less than the price of the game, I get the game AND a controller. Sweet deal!

      • Jon

        excruciatingat best..hahaha. Now I’m getting page load errors on the checkout tabs. Nail biter. I don’t even know if when I get to the end, they’re going to say “sorry charlie. Sold out”

  • Franz

    Getting some Nexus 4 bad memories…

  • M C

    lol droid life posts this and their site goes down 🙁

  • Franz

    We killed it. 🙁

  • What is this post up for 5 seconds and then the site is already down? Seriously people don’t you have jobs???

    • Fattie McDoogles

      ….back at ya bub! lol

    • EvanTheGamer

      What if people work in front of computers, and that’s their job? lol

      • Like me? Haha. Made it all the way to check out and then place my order when it timed out. Looks like you can make it all the way and then it’ll just time out. Took screenshots though so maybe I can force them to let me get it later? Lame.

  • EvanTheGamer


    So damn slow right now. I want it! I want it now!

    Proceeding to checkout…

  • Steven Gonz

    site is down already.

  • Tim Swann

    site is taking forever!!!

  • It took me 20 minutes of loading and waiting to get the order placed! It went through thoough. Thanks Droid-Life!

  • Nice DDoS guys…

  • TomStieger

    Thanks Droid-Life. Their site is sooooooo SLOW though!

  • Got mine in. Should easily be worth $5 considering the game itself it $7… Great deal.

  • Tora Mulligan

    Site’s not wanting to load. Guess demand is too great?

  • 2001400ex

    Website not working for me.

  • Got one…$5 bucks is a steal. Gonna play GTA: Vice City with it!! Thanks DL!! THIS is why I follow you guys on Twitter. – and of course for your android coverage 🙂

    • 🙂

      • Just searched google for this thing and DL is the number 2 result. HAHAHA

  • lnimmer

    I feel like im trying to get a Olly Moss print… holy loading…

    • Mark

      I totally appreciate this comment because as soon as Mondo posted the link on Twitter, i sat there, added to cart while processing, it was sold out when i sat their and the site loaded the entire time. Sometimes, they have the worst process ever, and 9 times out of 10, the people who get them are just resellers. Its annoying for people like me who want the poster to hang on their wall /rant

      • lnimmer

        Oh I know… this isnt the first time ive tried… and Im not sure why I try anymore… its near impossible to snag one… and Im sure your right about resellers… after I got the no longer in stock I pulled up ebay to find them on there already… being bidded on for hundos and hundos… 🙁

    • lnimmer

      about an hour later and $4.95 out of my pocket but got it! 😛

  • meetloaf13

    WEBSITE DYING! Let me in!

    • Yeah, they are certainly crashing. It’s slow, but sort of working heh.

  • chey023

    awesome. now just need their site to load.

    • Josh White

      Site was very slow for me, but I just got my order to go through so good luck!

      • chey023

        It’s in my cart, soooooo close.

  • Sean Stone

    Site is getting slammed, but managed to get one, sweet, thanks for the heads up.

  • Their site is really slow right now, I wonder why?

  • Jeremiah Brockman

    $5.22 shipped!!!!

  • Dan

    I figured why not, worth $5 to try it out.

  • Don’t game on devices, but nice cheap gift. Thanks.

  • Ryan Powell

    Awesome. In for 1! Thanks DL

  • Damn, only valid in the US.

    • Glad I checked the comments before clicking.
