The games on Galaxy S4 look amazing and connecting to an HD TV is awesome.

zeal0us4054d ago

Honestly the games look the same like they do on every other high-end phones. Sure the phone is sporting the fastest Snapdragon 600 chip(currently) but gaming isn't going to be that different compared to gaming on Optiminus G, Note 2, One, Droid DNA or Xperia Z.

Well on a hd 1080p tv they would look better with the higher res, but yes odds are games look the same on any other phone

Good for them. Unless it is free I won't get it.

I will never pay for a mobile game.

jeffgoldwin4054d ago

Obama games ftw! lol just kidding, your opinion is totally irrelevant to any game maker and doubtful if anyone here cares either, but thanks for sharing!

Sanquine904054d ago

It looks good but.... I needs buttons:S and i dont see someone paying big amounts for this game. Thats the problem with mobile gaming and all those casuals

AllroundGamer4054d ago

they will sell this neat gamepad with it - http://www.knowyourmobile.c... . At least for all the emulators :)

jeffgoldwin4054d ago

Moga cell phone game pad sounds like what you need to look at. I mean if you wanna game on the go. If not, obviously consoles and pc games are better.

I am so excited to get the s4 soon because my droid x2 is frustrating to use anymore and i just want to throw it out a window. I am not really into mobile racing games and if i want to play one I play forza 4.

another one bites the dust. When will these companies learn gaming isn't that easy to break into.

crazyCoconuts161d ago

but this one has such a catchy logo /s

DOMination-161d ago

Seems a bit harsh. It's just an accessory for their app on smart tvs and monitors. Maybe Samsung have bigger plans down the line but I don't think anyone is expecting this product to change the world, Samsung included.

darthv72161d ago

There is no dust to bite... this isnt like stadia. This is for playing games either from the mobile store or xcloud or geforce now through the smart tv. Like playing on your phone or tablet only a much much bigger screen.

Vits161d ago (Edited 161d ago )

Too expensive for what it is.

shinoff2183161d ago

40 hours sounds pretty damn incredible

Phoenix76160d ago

Maybe 40hrs when in stand by mode

You kid, but when Microsoft leaves, expect someone else to enter. Maybe Amazon. Maybe Netflix.

QuantumMechanic160d ago

Samsung is in bed with MS and shows latent interest in the gaming market. They are also a hardware manufacturer. It seems totally reasonable that Samsung is in a prime position to take over the Xbox hardware properties should MS bow out of the market.
