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!

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

  • http://twitter.com/BigDaddyBesbris Ethan Besbris

    Aaaand… They took down the site. Lol.

  • drkylecArchvile

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

  • http://www.droid-life.com/ Frank 2.0

    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

  • http://www.droid-life.com/ Frank 2.0

    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!

  • http://twitter.com/BriCo84 Brian Cohen

    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

  • http://twitter.com/kway4204 Kyle Way

    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

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=120701197 Daniel Sharpe

      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!

    • http://twitter.com/BriCo84 Brian Cohen

      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

  • https://twitter.com/#!/MMcCraryNJ Michael McCrary

    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

      Hahahahahaha!!!!

  • ArrowCool

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

  • http://www.facebook.com/jackson.emch Jackson Emch

    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.

  • http://twitter.com/m4tt_03 m4tt_03

    Cant even access the site…too much traffic!

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

  • Bobby Cornwell

    CAN ALL YOU GUYS PAUSE WHAT YOU’RE DOING FOR 2 MINUTES AND LET ME GET MY CONTROLLER PLEASE!??? Thanks! :)

    • http://www.droid-life.com/ Frank 2.0

      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.

  • http://twitter.com/BriCo84 Brian Cohen

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

    • Jon

      wondering myself. Still trying

  • http://www.droid-life.com/ Frank 2.0

    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

  • 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!

  • http://twitter.com/JamesG17 James G

    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.

    • http://Twitter.com/ContestsAccount bigrob60

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

  • http://www.droid-life.com/ Frank 2.0

    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!
