Samsung casts vote for Android game controllers with its own gamepad
Although the Samsung Galaxy S 4 mobile device reveal this week didn't contain many notable video game surprises, there was one -- a first-party Bluetooth gamepad for Android devices.
As reported by
Engadget, Samsung plans to release the Android game controller this summer, complete with dual analog sticks, a d-pad, and shoulder buttons that fit behind the slotted device.
Various Samsung Android devices can potentially fit into the slot provided, including the Galaxy S range and the Galaxy Note range. No price has been divulged as of yet, and what you see here is only a prototype
Samsung is no doubt looking to compete with the various Android gamepads that are due to launch over the coming year, including the Green Throttle controller
, which already began shipping earlier this month.
