Samsung Galaxy S4 challenges portable gaming console market

Forbes contributor John Gaudiosi writes that the latest developments in the smartphone industry may mean that “the gap between consoles and portable games is closing.”

He expects Samsung will respond to this by launching “a Game Arcade gamepad that looks very similar to an Xbox 360 controller with dual analog sticks and shoulder.”

The article explains that with the new mobile devices you can play games on your big-screen TV.

In addition, Gaudiosi believes Samsung’s gaming controller accessory for the Galaxy S4 is an indicator that the company is planning to focus on the gaming aspects of its smartphone.

Also, Samsung wants to release 80 games that support the controller until the launch of the S4 launches and the accessory may even be compatible with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
