Samsung Game Station: mobile games on the big screen

Samsung's latest mobile games initiative in South Korea is called Game Station, and involves hooking your phone up to a TV to play 3D games on a full-sized screen.

If i have a tv to hook my cell phone then i'd be playing with my console not a crappy cellphone game with atrocious contols. I play cellphone games to kill time when i'm not in home.

It's a fair point, but this invention may well be a godsend for gamers on a budget out in parts of the world were wages won't afford an expensive under the TV console.

Also look at how far mobile games have come, give them another couple of years and they may stil be a long way off replicating home consoles but they will certainly be of the sort of quality that anyone would be happy to play on their TV.

You are right about the controls though, something drastic has to be done there for the medium to ever be an alternative to other home gaming solutions.
