Among all the accessories presented yesterday by Samsung, we will retain this wireless gamepad whose price has not been revealed but which will be available next May.

Largely inspired by the Xbox 360 controller, of which Samsung offers a smaller and lighter variant, the latter will only be compatible with the Galaxy S4 via a Bluetooth connection. Powered by two AAA batteries, it takes the usual assortment of all gamepads with joysticks, directional arrows and triggers on the sides.

Unfortunately, this accessory will only be compatible with games purchased on the Samsung Apps and not on games from Google play store… Also, it would be impossible for the moment to connect several controllers to the same smartphone, ruling out the possibility of multi-player games. Note that the object is not compatible with the old Samsung range.
