    Samsung is Prepping a Docking Bluetooth Gamepad for the Galaxy S4


    Samsung has included a robust accessory line for their new Galaxy SIV superphone, and one of the many doodads is a Bluetooth gamepad dock. It looks a bit cheesy, but if it is functional, it could be quite useful for heavy mobile gamers. They have a number of other accessories as well. Here's a link below to check out the gamut of stuff they will offer for their new flagship.

    Thanks for the tip, CJM!

    same as that Moga controller that came out last year MOGA Mobile Gaming Controller for Android Smartphones & Tablets | PowerA

    as long as there are enough games that support this controller, i'm all in.

    First impression: kinda chunky, and looks perfect for the 6-and-under crowd. Come on, you know what I mean...you're on the bus, busy playing your game, and that cute girl you have your eye on leans over and says, "Did you steal that toy from your baby brother?" Move it to black, square off the fat corners a bit, and replace the buttons with more masculine colors (what's up with that Playskool palette?), and all will be good.

    Not only is it not compatible with the S3, but it's also only compatible with games purchased through Samsung's app portal. [Source]
    I wonder how long until developers find a way around this limitation?

    Re: Samsung is Prepping a Docking Bluetooth Gamepad for the Galaxy S4

    What's a shame is that the layout is that of the xbox 360 controller. Especially the color of the controller, and the four buttons. Same color, same spot. Thumbsticks and d-pad, as well. And the center buttons. Same idea with the main "guide" button in the center with the start and back buttons on either side.

    Edit: looking closer, those ARE xbox 360 controller buttons. Green is A, blue is X, yellow is Y, and red is B.
