THIS should be the future of gaming.
Imagine a Tegra 4 (MUCH more power than current consoles )phone next year.. put in a dock hooked to the TV..

Seems to be a very interesting idea, however, it will take a while before we can get a proper console experience with games worthy of a console environment. Most phones and tablets on the market right now are able to play demanding titles such as Nova 3, unfortunately there is no way even a new exynos processor paired with an adreno 230 can play games in split-screen mode. Predictions are that cellphone games and hardware will reach current console standards by the beginning of 2014. For now I think that buying Green Throttle will limit the user to a 2D multiplayer experience, which is nonetheless fun :) Otherwise for an intense multiplayer FPS experience the only solution i see is two tv's and two high specced phones playing the same title in co-op mode online. Finally, I think Green Throttle will eventually expand its market to Android TV's, as we are slowly seeing more of those. More and more tv's now come with dual core processors and dedicated GPU's. Of course, it will take a while before Android will appeal to hardcore gamers, but for now it seems as if the casual gamer might be more than satisfied with what Green Throttle has to offer, especially at such an interesting price.

I realize it's only by a few cents, but I find it rather humorous that it's more expensive to buy the two controller bundle than it is to buy them separately.
