Google may announce Nexus TV this year
Google recently acquired part of Green Throttle Games and hired two of the key people behind the company. Recall that it offers a gaming controller and platform turn every Android device into a portable console.
According PandoDaily hiring Matt Crowley and Karl Townsend is not accidental. More sources say that Google is working on Nexus TV, set-top device carrying the full functionality of Android on the big screen. The experiment started with Google Chromecast, but Nexus TV will probably be used for direct consumption of content, and of course, gaming.
Android is not fully optimized for game controller on a big screen projects like OUYA GameStick and prove that it is impossible, without direct work with Google. We can only speculate what the specific plans of the guys from Mountain View, but competition from PlayStation and Xbox it is more serious.
