Accessory developers MOGA and Power A sent a combined $12,000 of gaming controllers to U.S. troops for the holidays, public charity Operation Supply Drop said in a press release today obtained by Examiner.
According to the press release Power A and MOGA sent wireless Batman-themed Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 controllers to troops, as well as 350 of MOGA gaming controllers, which hook up to any Android-powered device and turn them into an amped up mobile gaming machine.
“Sending MOGAs to our troops is just a small way we can show support,” Eric Bensussen, President of PowerA said in a press release. “To MOGA is fun – And if gaming on a MOGA can provide an escape from the gravity of their sacrifice then we want to offer that opportunity. We’re honored to be a part of Operation Supply Drop during this holiday season.”
Founded in 2010, by Army Airborne Ranger Stephen Machuga, Operation Game Drop specializes in sending gaming care packages to troops stationed all over the world. Since their creation, they have raised over $650,000 for over 1,5000 troops across the globe.
