    Default ICS Gaming

    How will gaming work on ICS? Will ps3 be integrated at all? Will we ever see games like call of duty available now since you can use a controller? Thanks!

    Wow, I hope so.

    GameStop just started selling tablets btw. They are selling an Android gamepad as well. http://www.gamestop.com/gs/merchincl...thebigcont.jpg

    That, and USB controller support on ICS. Good signs!

    Does ICS have GPU acceleration?

    ICS supports 2D GPU acceleration. We're awhile off before mobile devices support console-quality graphics. Portable-quality graphics are within reach.

    Keep in mind that handsets are limited in power, heat, and pricing where consoles aren't.

    So with GPU acceleration will the nexus s be able to handle better quality games?

    I'm fine with portable quality graphics as long as we start to see more developer support. I can understand why most companies aren't rushing to develop games for a market that typically pays 3-5 dollars a title. Particularly Activision.

    I get kinda giddy at the prices we get on mobile.

    Yes they are awesome right now. but when they do start making better quality games will ICS help on the Nexus s 4g? or should I go with the Epic 4g touch if I am looking for a more future proof phone?

    Epic 4g touch is your best bet. The hardware is slightly better than that of the Nexus.

    I'd search gaming on the Epic Touch and the S2 for that matter. A good chunk of the games force close on them after playing for a bit. It's a known problem that Sammy isn't acknowledging.

    I still love the phone and recommend it, but it's a real pain when it comes to gaming.

    Tegra 3 is said to have Xbox 360 graphics and is 2 to 3 months away
