Ice Cream Sandwich Has Gamepad Support

@romainguy, one of the many Android developers behind Ice Cream Sandwich tweeted out something worth noting for all the non-stop gamers out there. The new version of Android supports gamepads and HDMI so you can turn your Android device into a fully fledged games console. It was possible to hook up gamepads to your Android device before, but it required some complicated processes which can take time and cause a lot of hassle.

Now in the tweet he only mentions the Galaxy Nexus. But imagine it on an Android tablet. The bigger screens and the more powerful innards could provide some great gaming moments, replacing your PS3, XBOX or PC when you're away from home. Also with the massive selection of games out there on the Android market, this new feature will be taken advantage of, hugely.
