Android 2.3 supports game controls

Android 2.3 is being pushed to support much better gaming controls

| Mobile Devices News | Posted: Dec 7, 2010 3:00 am

Google has been pushing Gingerbread and how it is better than ever for game development. The picture below is from a page culled from the Android 2.3 SDK which displays a bunch of new key codes in the system targeted for gaming: L1, L2, R1, R2, A, B,C, etc.

Is this new picture related to the Sony PlayStation Phone? Possibly... but Sony are most likely working on their own environment for key mapping with PlayStation-branded titles instead of letting the Android SDK take control.

 

Maybe Google are wanting to take on mobile gaming seriously - hopefully this helps the sequel to Angry Birds ;)
