The game pad is not that different from the x-box controllers, features 3 axis gyro/accelerometer motion sensors, also features lots of ports for SD cards, which would suggest that you would be able to put an android game from your PC onto SD and straight into the machine. This is quite a pretty looking bit of kit, styled out of black and silver with slivers of green.
