Black Friday is almost upon us (November 29th, 2013 for those of you who may have forgotten) and as always this means people are out hunting for all the best deals that they can find. When it comes to Android products, there's a plethora of deals to be had not only on Black Friday but on Thanksgiving Thursday, Cyber Monday and over the weekend as well.
Ouya has decided to release today a limited edition version of their Android-powered console for the holiday season. This new version of their console isn't the upcoming Ouya 2 or anything like that. Instead it is a white version of the original but it isn't just merely an aesthetic change that the console has received in this new holiday edition.
The upcoming Mojo Android-powered game console by Mad Catz is nearing its official retail launch and it looks like it will be a little more appealing when it finally does go on sale thanks to Mad Catz and Nvidia working together to bring Nvidia's GameStream technology to the console. While this feature most likely won't make it in time for the console's launch, it is planned for it to arrive in an update shortly afterwards.
We don't usually post about Android devices going on sale mainly because there are plenty of other sites out there that cover this sort of thing. However once in awhile there is a sale so good we just have to post about it and that happens to be the case today with LG's G2 Android phone on Amazon going for $199 for a limited time. Did we mention this is the Verizon and AT&T's off-contract price?
PowerA has officially launched their new series of MOGA controllers from Android gamers to purchase. The MOGA Hero Power and the MOGA Power Pro game controllers are designed for gaming on the go and both feature the MOGA Boost technology which basically charges your phone while you are using either controller.
Christmas is coming up pretty fast and that means you'll be spending lots of money buying people presents and perhaps yourself a little gift or two in the process as well. With all the new gaming related gear that has come out for Android gamers or will be coming out, it can be a little daunting deciding which devices or peripheral to purchase.
As we near the end of this year we can expect Mad Catz to finally launch their Mojo Android-powered game console. Along with the console, Mad Catz already has a wide selection of peripherals available to use with it or any bluetooth enabled Android device. We can now add one more to the list and that being a new gaming keyboard called S.T.R.I.K.E.M.
The company behind the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset has been teasing mobile support and mobile integration with the headset for some time now, even mentioning that there is an SDK in the works for mobile game developers to use. It is now confirmed that the Oculus Rift will be coming to Android and that Android users will also have their own headset.
It looks like there will soon be another option when it comes to picking out which controller you want to use from your mobile gaming needs. Evolution Controllers has put a Kickstarter campaign up for a new mobile gaming controller they have developed called the Drone.
Nvidia has been working hard on their Android gaming themed device called the Shield since it was originally released for public consumption. Since the device's launch, Nvidia has pumped out some pretty solid software updates to boost performance and stability with the Shield but today's new OTA update brings some big changes that make the Shield even better.
Ouya said, back before the console launched, that their Android-powered console would see new versions of it being released with updated hardware on a regular basis. The company did warn everyone that this would basically mean that a new console would be released every year or pretty much every year as long as their is a substantial upgrade in hardware to do.
