How to turn your Android device into a veritable gaming console for new and retro titles (video)
This epic 17-minute video below can teach you a trick or two on how to use your Android smartphone as a gaming console, complete with installing emulators, hooking it up to a TV, as well as using various accessories like gamepads and Wiimotes with it.

For those of you who are big fans of the retro big box gaming, installing emulators and loading games up, although controversial in terms of copyright and such, is also demonstrated. 

The good thing about Android emulators is that you don't need to hack or root your device in any way, so Google's mobile OS is quickly becoming a gamer's lust, as hinted by the record-breaking donations to the Kickstarter project for Ouya - the open-source Android gaming console.

Sony might have to shut down PSPs considering the advancement in cell phone chips.

Wow I have been doing that forever. I love playing Super Smash Bros on the N64 emulator on the big screen HDTV. I love that any Wii mote with a classic controller attachment. We sometimes have EPIC battles. Now don't even get me started on Goldeneye. lol
