Android gaming has been getting a ton of love lately as both the OUYA and GameStick are expected to reinvigorate the Android gaming market in the coming months, but Green Throttle is looking to jumpstart the Android gaming revolution with its new service.
Unlike both the OUYA and GameStick, Green Throttle doesn’t require any dedicated console hardware to function as it’s available as a portal application which requires the use of their Green Throttle Atlas controllers. Once you have the app and a controller, you’ll be able to browse the Green Throttle Arena portal for recommended titles and will also scan your device for previously installed games that will work with the Green Throttle.
A Green Throttle Atlas controller costs $39.95, although a 2 Player Bundle which includes a micro-HDMI to HDMI cable and a micro USB charger, will cost you $39.95. As of now, the Green Throttle Arena application is only available for the Kindle Fire HD, but the company plans on releasing it to more devices, such as the Galaxy S4 and Nexus 4.
