Google’s Ice Cream Sandwich Could Change Console Gaming

This has nothing to do with food, but it’s an enticing story nonetheless. Google’s newest Android operating system, known as Ice Cream Sandwich, will allow support for USB controllers and HDMI output. That’s a lot of power for such a little machine.

So what does that mean, exactly? Well, it means that gamers will be able to hook up their controllers to the Android, and then plug the phone into their TV and have a console experience directly from their phone. Now there just needs to be some decent games on the Android market.

This is a step in the direction of a more portable console experience, though. Imagine a world where console games are cloud based and can be streamed via a client like Steam through your phone so you can play it anywhere, any time. That’s right, you’re going to get even less done in your free time. So is this Google’s best flavor of Ice Cream yet?
