Forums - Gaming Discussion - Samsung's Smartphone Gamepad Launching

http://thenextweb.com/gadgets/2013/12/17/samsung-launches-a-gamepad-for-android-thats-optimized-for-its-galaxy-phones/#!p4Wd1

 

Not too shabby. Looks comfy. Launching now in some European markets, will be available in the rest of the world in the following weeks. 

Dual analog (360 setup) with a 8-way d-pad on the bottom, 4 face buttons, 2 shoulder buttons. 

Comes with an app that shows which games natively support the controller. I have a Galaxy S4 so I will be picking one of these up. Apple should make an official controller for iPhone IMO. 

You can play on your TV using the HDMI out or one of the TV streaming apps. 

I hope Sonic 1/2, Final Fantasy, and Dragon Quest VIII support it. And the SNES emulator. Anyone else with a Samsung phone planning on picking this up?

Weird. Those companies should learn from PSPGo.

That Sony shouldn't release another handheld....But they did :S



Nice. Might get this (depending on price).

My dualshock 3 works fine at the moment, but this looks much better for on the go.

Edit: LOL. Nevermind its going to cost £80 in the UK.



So ugly, there is no need for these things. Just get a Gameklip and attach your phone to your controller. Waiting on dualshock 4 support.

Just get a handheld if you want to carry something more than just your phone. Vita is awesome, 3DS is probably fine as well.

Wii U is a GCN 2 - I called it months before the release!

My Vita to-buy list: The Walking Dead, Persona 4 Golden, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, TearAway, Ys: Memories of Celceta, Muramasa: The Demon Blade, History: Legends of War, FIFA 13, Final Fantasy HD X, X-2, Worms Revolution Extreme, The Amazing Spiderman, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - too many no-gaemz :/

My consoles: PS2 Slim, PS3 Slim 320 GB, PSV 32 GB, Wii, DSi.
