Where form meets function

Months after introducing the Galaxy GamePad at the S4 unveiling, Samsung releases the device in Europe. The revised pad features a new facade that discards the hybrid look of the prototype and makes use of a rechargeable battery pack. In addition, the controller works on devices from 4 inches to 6.3 inches running Jelly Bean and up. The controller’s “Play” button launches Samsung’s new Mobile Console app. At launch, the “Play” button will lead to around 35 compatible titles including Need for Speed: Most Wanted and Prince of Persia: The Shadow and the Flame. No word yet on any North American release date but we’ll be sure to keep you posted as we hear more.
