    I'm really going to use emulators on the Nexus TV so I can get my retro gaming on. Is there any reason I wouldn't be able to do this?

    Well, the nexus player runs on android 5.0, so I don't see why not.

    Awesome, thanks. Now I just gotta hope that my Moga Pro will work so I don't need to buy another controller

    Engadget reported that it has access to the full Play Store so it should theoretically work. I was thinking about buying one of those retro consoles that work with NES, SNES, Mega Drive, and Genesis cartridges but I'm going to hold off for now. If the software is accessible, this thing should be able to even emulate Dreamcast games.

    It seems difficult to say, because while it apparently does have full access to the Play Store, I'd imagine a lot of apps would still have to be updated by the developers in order for it to be truly compatible. I guess we'll see, though.

    Yeah that's true. I'm really hoping it works. I've really enjoyed playing on my tablet, but bringing it to the big screen would be incredible! I'm bummed it only has 1 GB of ram, and 8 GB of storage though...

    It does have a microUSB port as I understand. Roms aren't that big unless you're playing PSP or PSX.

    Still wonder how to even connect a external HD as the micro USB is on the unit?

    One of these: usb otg cable | eBay

    Also the emulator you use need to be compatible with external storage, which pretty much most of them will be.

    Thanks but no one will know if these will work. Someone here will surly test them when the Nexus Player comes out.

    Just download them in a browser like on a computer. I've done it on my tablet before.
