Logitech-MFi-controller-deal-9to5mac

It appears that lukewarm reviews and less-than-stellar demand is creating fierce competition amongst early-entrants into the MFi game controller space. Just last week SteelSeries knocked $20 off its Stratus controller, and now Logitech is going even further and slashing $30 off its PowerShell controller. The news follows our in-depth look at the MFi game controller program where we talked to companies about complaints over pricing and the less than stellar reviews of the controllers.

Despite the well-documented shortcomings of the PowerShell, we didn’t hesitate to recommend it for casual gamers. The deal is only scheduled to last until February 1st, but something tells us other discounts and promotions can’t be too far off.

  1. Maybe they’re all anticipating that they’re all going to have leftover stock when a larger iPhone comes out in just a few months. The iPhone 5 was released almost a year and a half ago. It shouldn’t take manufacturers this long to come out with the goods.

      Even if/when a larger iPhone is announced at WWDC in June, the device itself won’t be available to consumers until October, so they still have 9 months to sell these.
