Google’s latest acquisition hints at deeper gaming integration with the rumored Nexus TV

Atlas Controller

Google has confirmed its acquisition of Green Throttle Games, which is renowned for the Atlas gaming controller for Android devices. However, with the companion app mysteriously missing from the Play Store and the company basically going defunct, fans of the service have turned against the company. But this acquisition might change all that as a rumor claims that Google could be looking to implement their services for its upcoming home set top box, dubbed the Nexus TV.

Two of the three co-founders of the company – Matt Crowley and Karl Townsend will now join the Google team after the acquisition. There’s not a lot known about this Nexus TV, apart from the fact that it’s a Google TV refresh and will break cover this year, possibly at the I/O event in June.

Implementation of a gaming service could go a long way in making the Nexus TV a success. This would rival the likes of Ouya, which is among the few Android based gaming consoles that have actually caught our attention.
