Android 2.3 supports game controls

Android 2.3 is being pushed to support much better gaming controls

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 ;)
