Logitech's entry into the iOS 7 controller market, the wider-than-my-Jnco-jeans PowerShell is seeing its first price drop since the original $99.99 price point leaked in late October. The $69.99 price point is currently live both ordering direct from Logitech as well as at the Apple Store. Amazon isn't reflecting the price change as of this writing, but a quick chat with a customer service agent might result in a price match if you prefer to order from Amazon.

The PowerShell is my least favorite of the three currently available iOS 7 controllers. It lacks the analog sticks of the similar form factored MOGA Ace Power and neither work with the iPad like the SteelSeries Stratus does. With the Stratus seeing a similar (albeit $10 more expensive) price point, that still seems to be the controller to go with if you're going to buy any of them right now.

      Congrats, prepare for the downvotes (mobile users should really be able to downvote. And also be linked to their disqus account)

      • shadax

        Thaaaaats what it is. I always wondered how the hell people downvote and didn't even consider that we're not all on mobile (but I imagine most of us are?)

  • Eduardo Ribeiro Bueno Netto

    Aesthetically, I liked it more than the others, but the lack of analog sticks is complicated...

  • MkRwilliams

    Hehe, 69 hehehehehe...

  • defunct32

    On a serious note, is the controller good or should I opt/wait for something else?

    • SpacePenguinBot

      You should probably wait.

      • Chq

        70€ for a controller? Aaaaahahahahahahaaaaaa!!!! Crazy.

  • ODMay

    With a price like that, it should, at least, have analog sticks.

    • Zwilnik

      It does (sort of) in that the DPad is analog as all MFi controller buttons have to be analog buttons. It's not got the handy dual analog sticks though.

      • loophole

        That's pretty much a deal breaker for me

  • Kevin897

    When I had my Android Phone, I got a Bluetooth controller for $20. These ones for Apple are WAY to much.

  • icepulse

    #*@€ that noise.

  • terrence92

    You don't want to buy this, trust me.

    • islesfan

      I have one and it's an excellent controller. Very solid build. Long battery life. Buttons and D-Pad very responsive. Phone fits in perfectly. I use mine all the time. It's perfect for KOTOR and Battle Supremacy. Also great for Storm Raiders and LEGO LOTOR. I even like it with Asphalt 8.

      It is missing the second stick, but the solid body construction is far more durable and a worthwhile trade-off.

      I highly recommend it, especially on sale!

      • Rob Chesnick

        I agree. I love mine. Some games (especially platformers like the utterly charming Floyd's Worthwhile Endeavor) just work a lot better with real controllers.

    I'll wait till they're 40 to buy one.

    • islesfan

      Won't happen. This is probably as good as it will get.

  • Kane

    Too Cheap

  • Sanuku

    I can only repeat what Eli has already mentioned above. The PowerShell is (at least in my eyes) the weakest of all current iOS 7 Controller and Logitech isn`t anymore what it once was known for: A innovative & premium brand that you can buy without even hesitating for a single moment.

  • hourglass

    Are they serious with this pricing? I could get a brand new wireless Xbox 360 controller for less.

    • zergslayer69

      Xbox One controller even (priced higher)

  • klouud

    this is the one I would purchase, but $70 is still too high to get me to bite

  • LuckySunday

    It seems to me that these two iPhone specific controllers have jumped the gun here.

    With the rumor mill spinning up about a larger "phablet" sized screen imminent. Wouldn't it seem more profitable to manufacture a universal controller that's a true gaming experience on iOS and OS X alike?

    Can you really be immersed in a virtual console with such a small footprint?

    Just a thought..

    Jnco Jeans.

  • H4nd0fg0d

    Stick with my ps3 controller...

  • BruteOutlawz

    Why bother, at that price your better off downloading controllerforall from cydia any buying a ps3 or ps4 controller.

    • islesfan

      Assuming you're willing to jailbreak...

  • sweetdiss

    Pricedrop already? I'LL WAIT 'TIL IT'S FREE.

  • salvee

    I'll wait for the third price drop!

  • Salt Abdullah

    I just bought a PS4 controller for my MacBook Pro. I'll buy the Steel Series for my 5S.

  • nigematige

    If they were smart, they would halt production of these and sell the remaining ones off at this price and wait until the Apple gaming peripheral rules loosen up

  • touchgamer32

    In Germany 99 Euro!!!! Why?!?!? WTF!!!!
