Samsung's Galaxy S4 Game Pad Is The Future Of Handheld Gaming

Samung's Galaxy S4 is the first Android phone that stands a chance to usurp the iPhone's place as the preferred smartphone for gaming. It's not the new features or improved specs that are so exciting, but a peripheral that finally allows it to bridge the gap between smartphones and dedicated gaming handhelds.

"This could be the end of dedicated gaming handhelds."

I've heard this before. But in the end, what matters are the games. They decide what is successful.

LOGICWINS1621d ago

And the ioS/Android market has games in affordable prices too :)

Nyxus1621d ago

Yes, but do they reach the quality level of games on dedicated handhelds? Some maybe, but certainly not all of them.

LOGICWINS1621d ago

^^At $0-$10, do they have to?

fluffydelusions1621d ago

Toilet/bus/train games you play in 5 min spurts sure.

"Samsung's Galaxy S4 Game Pad Is The Future Of Handheld Gaming"

It's just a freaking controller big deal..

I'd much rather have a Vita where real games land not Developers trying to make a pretty penny with shovelware games.

I was discussing this with my buddy the other day and it just concerns me a bit how developers aren't really making a lot of games on the vita.

The_Infected1621d ago

I agree the have quality games but they're not making enough games fast enough.

Neckbear1621d ago

You know, the Xperia Play already did this without being tacky as heck and even then it didn't have too big of a success. Why would this worse solution be any different? At the end of the day this will be mostly useful for those who like emulating stuff in their phones, no more. The quality of the games will never get close to what you see in actual handhelds.

Just like PC is the future of gaming. Those phones cost like twice more than PS VITA and three times more than 3DS, and you need to change them like every two years to keep up.

But the most important thing is, these controllers will never be popular. Only the hardcore gamers would buy such thing. And, you know, pretty much every hardcore gamer would better buy 3DS or PS VITA, especially when it's cheaper too.

That looks ass why would you ever walk around with that. Atleast 3DS and Psvita dont look like bride of frankenstein. Controller alone is almost big as a 3ds and vita.
