Message Text: Samsung today introduced the Smartphone GamePad and Mobile Console app to enhance gaming on Samsung's line of Galaxy devices.

The Smartphone GamePad transforms the user's Galaxy smartphone or tablet into a portable gaming console or even a home console. It is attachable to mobile devices ranging from 4-inches to 6.3-inches, allowing users to play games wherever they are. Users can also connect Galaxy devices to their TV through an HDMI cable or AllShare Screen Mirroring for video game console experience from their living room.

GamePad connects with smartphones and tablets through Bluetooth pairing. Features optimized for Samsung Galaxy devices running Android 4.3 such as Galaxy Note 3, S4, Note II, and S III enable easy connectivity with GamePad via NFC tag and quicker access to games via the "PLAY" button.

With a tap of the "PLAY" button, users can access the Mobile Console app, Samsung's new integrated game launching app that opens in conjunction with GamePad to allow users to browse and purchase game pad supported games.

Samsung is promising to offer reasonably priced console-quality games without the expense of additional gaming systems, as Mobile Console features games across a variety of categories including traditional racing titles such as EA's Need for Speed Most Wanted and Gameloft?s Asphalt8 : Airborne, first-person shooter titles such as Gameloft's Modern Combat 4 : Zero Hour, sports titles such as SEGA's Virtua Tennis Challenge, and action titles such as Ubisoft's Prince of Persia : The Shadow and the Flame.

The Mobile Console app is available for download through Samsung Apps or by tapping the GamePad's "PLAY" button, and offers 35 dedicated games at launch with more to come in 2014.
The GamePad is is currently available in select European markets and will be available in additional regions in the coming weeks.
