Logitech portable game controller made for iPhone 5 and up

Logitech has announced a new gaming controller designed specifically for Lighting-equipped devices and iOS 7. The controller is similar to the MOGA Ace Power unveiled earlier this week.
Logitech calls its new controller the Powershell Controller + Battery. The controller offers analog on-screen controls including a d-pad, shoulder triggers, and face buttons offering more control over video games. This Logitech controller has no analog joysticks.
“We designed this controller to deliver a true console-gaming experience on an iOS 7 mobile device,” said Ehtisham Rabbani, general manager of the Logitech gaming business. “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 revolutionize the experience.”

With your Apple device inside the controller, users will maintain full access to the power switch, volume, camera, speakers, headphone jack, and charging port. The Logitech controller has its own internal 1500 mAh battery to extend the runtime of your device while gaming. The controller is compatible with the iOS 7 game controller framework and supports any game that takes advantage of that framework.
The Logitech PowerShell Controller + Battery controller is available now for $99.99 at and the Apple Online Store. Expanded retail availability around the world will happen in December.

For a moment I thought Logitech released some sort of Powershell module for something. Dang I love me that Powershell - the scripting language that is.

I take it you've never learned how to use Powershell...

Heelarioussss!! I'm well familiar with Linux, vi, bash, and perl. In fact I used to do everything with Perl until Powershell came out and now never use perl. It is so much easier to do things and MUCH quicker than perl. Give it a try. I've rewritten my old Perl scripts and guess what, they're incredibly shorter and simpler and it was much easier to do.

Oh yeah, if my objective is to get work done as efficiently and quickly as possible I use Powershell. If my objective is to be snobby on tech forums and get paid by the hour I'd use Perl.

How about a peripheral that works for multiple devices and not just one for half the price?

Two main reasons. Firstly, It's not MFi, so it won't support the iOS 7 APIs and, lastly, it's not pocket friendly.

...and THAT looks pocket friendly?

They couldn't come up with a better name than Microsoft's command line interface?

Most consumers don't even know what Microsoft Powershell is, let alone that it even has a command line interface.

I missed "Windows Has a commandline interface" form my post.
