How Samsung Galaxy S4 Will Compete With Sony PlayStation 4

Forbes - The mobile market continues to evolve at a rapid rate with new smartphones and tablets being introduced by Apple, Samsung, Acer, Asus, HP, Toshiba, Vizio and other big companies at a brisk (almost monthly) pace. Samsung is the latest big consumer electronics company to one-up the competition with its Galaxy S4.

With the advances in processing power in these mobile devices (and Moore’s Law), mobile devices – and the games being developed for them – are quickly catching up with what current generation consoles can do. In the US, the Galaxy S4 will sport a 1.9GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor that has already been tested by Laptop Mag and put up there with the new HTC One. When you factor in the benchmarks set by NVIDIA Tegra 4 technology, which was demonstrated at CES 2013 with new games like Dead Trigger II, the gap between consoles and portable games is closing even faster.

Looks like a cool new gaming phone.

This and the Vita will be MINE at the end of the year! :D

EDIT: Damn, that Snapdragon 600 is REALLY apparent with Need for Speed. Not a SINGLE stutter or tear in that gameplay!

in the case of phone/tablet gaming its iPhone or iPad by far simply because that the good games exclusively release on them, Android mostly gets clones or late ports unfortunately. the good thing about Android is the OS features not the Play store.

The late ports don't bother me at all. I'll have my PS3/Vita to game on between worthwhile Android releases. Can't wait to get Vice City on my S4!

I will never understand articles like this one.
Are they seriously comparing a CONSOLE! with a PHONE! did you see the last thing I wrote? A PHONE!!!
So what if the S.G.4 CPU/GPU can power a nuclear plant by itself... who cares? People don't realise that Specs like this ones you find in your smartphone are USELESS...
Who is going to sit down in his living room and get his smartphone out of his/hers pocket and start playing Battlefield 4 on their tiny 5" screen?

Coming up in the next article...
"How does Toyota Prius compete with the PS4"
Stay tuned...

EDIT: whoever tells me that "you can connect your phone with your tv and play from there"
I will slap him with a shovel...

Not really. Outside of the wi-fi streaming software, everything on that phone I can do on my Note 2. They're just marketing their new phone with things they could have done on current phone technology.

Game-wise, you can keep throwing up a racing game and say it's the same, but they can't do the same with the plethora of games available on the current gen consoles.

We won't be seeing Halo, Gears of War, inFamous, Uncharted, Tomb Raider, Skyrim, or anything of the like on the phones. So, it may compete when it comes to Indie titles of a sort and some basic games (which are fun to play, don't get me wrong), but it won't be a competitor for the plethora of games we play on consoles now.

Here we go again, mobile gaming and console gaming are two separate markets, they won't compete with each other.
