Bears a striking resemblance to that other controller
Samsung yesterday showed off its new Galaxy Bluetooth controller at the Galaxy S4 Unpacked event in New York City, where the company unveiled its new flagship phone.
The controller, referred to as the "Game Arcade," will see release in May with eight games bundled, and will be compatible with 80 Android games at its release. It connects to compatible Galaxy devices, such as the Galaxy S4, and can play games via a television screen or through the phone itself, which can be docked to the controller's top as seen above. Its official page notes the dock will hold screens up to 6.3 inches in size and features one-touch Bluetooth pairing through NFC tags.
The controller works with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, the Galaxy S4 and all future hardware and software releases. Pricing and exact release date were not revealed.
