"Aimed at the hardcore Android gamers"

I think you have a very low target demographic. Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the mobile gaming thing for casual gamers?

maybe....but
you have to admit that the mobile market has greatly surpassed that of the portable gaming market.

To these guys, that "low" target has just gotten allot higher.

Maybe they meant the "Hardcore Retro Gamers".

The emulators run perfectly on my Galaxy S2, S3 & Nexus tablet.

There are plenty of "hardcore" games on the NES, SNES, GENESIS, PSOne, N64 emulators plus they have great frame rate, graphics and sound.

So this is a very welcome on the go device for me.

I'm sorry, but if you actually use something like this on anything smaller than a 10" tablet, you need to have your gaming privileges revoked. Even using it on a large tablet should only be for long flights or bus trips. If I see somebody on public transit using a controller with a phone, it will be very hard for me not to punch them.

Why? Smartphone controls for anything but angry birds are terrible. I have that Nova game and some decent looking zombie game but cant play them for more than 2mins due to terribad contols.

and...
"terribad" spelling.

lol

Look harder. There are lots of really great games that play superbly via a touchscreen. However, if FPS games are your thing play them using the dualshock 3 with your tablet.
"I'm sorry, but if you actually use something like this on anything smaller than a 10" tablet, you need to have your gaming privileges revoked. "

from a console gamers perspective. so no credibility.

would help more to see what android gamers think of it.

do you realize vita and 3ds don't have 10 inch screen? They should have their gaming revoked?

Umm you are aware of mirror mode or mini hdmi on Droids right?Plug ur phone into a flat screen and boom intant pocket console escpecially with the up comming Quad-core S4 Pro in my new Nexus 4 next week. Might be worth a look.

This really does deafeat the purpose of easy mobile gaming. If it was that serious for someone then their best option would be a 3DS or Vita.

Hope it works great with my Nexus 7.
