Default Playing games through tv

Does any one know how to play games on your tv? I remember it was shown at the keynote speech but cannot find any info on it? I have got a top end Samsung tv with built in wifi and allshare
Any ideas?
Many thanks

My tv is 3 years old, so I have to use an HDMI cable.
Just play!
So what is the question?

Yeah as soon as you hook up phones allshare to tvs and start streaming. Whatever you do on the phone will show up on the TV correct? So if you play a game, itll be on TV.

Then you can just use the phone as a controller and not as a screen

It's not that simple I don't think. Have tried lots of different things. It's not in the all share app.
I'm thinking it's only specific games with there own setting.

I don't understand how allshare works, I can't see anyway to link my Samsung TV to it.

I think you just open the app and it will search for any compatible device.

For gaming on the TV you'll need either the S3-specific MHL adapter, or the Allshare Cast Dongle (which is not yet available). I got my MHL adapter from Clove in the UK, important at the moment to get one from somewhere reputable as many are claiming older MHL adapters work with the S3 when they do not (not the sellers fault in many instances, they expected the old ones to work because MHL is a connection standard, or at least it was until Samsung changed the pin arrangement in the S3).

I demo MHL gaming toward the end of this video (there are quick nav links in the video description):

But in there unveiling they said if you have a 2010 or newer Samsung smart tv you won't need the dongle.

Can someone explain how I get a ps3 and 360 controller to work on my gs3, can I just connect the controller cable directly to my phones battery port using a female usb adaptor?

No, you must have a USB OTG cable. The PS3 controller works without any configuration, but you need the app USB/BT controller to use wired XBoX 360 controllers.

Incidentally, for owners of old MHL cables you can now purchase an adapter from Samsung so that they will work with your S3.
