For now, Moto Gamepad pre-orders are a Verizon exclusive
Pre-orders have gone up for the modular accessory at Verizon and Verizon only for $79.99 with first shipments out by August 25. The mod itself features ABXY buttons, a D-pad, a pair of control sticks and a pair of shoulder pads. It’s large enough to lug along a supplementary battery for your Moto Z-series device with an extra 1,035mAh battery.
Moto Mods usually take the form of the smartphone they attach to, but the extra girth needed to fit the side-mounted controls really make this a load to haul around in a backpack. Is it worth your cash? Well, if you have a Moto Z-series device, you have the decision to make.
No word on when Motorola and other retailers will jump on this train.
