We're not sure how they did it but we're sure glad they did: it seems a developer in Spain has successfully transformed his Acer Iconia Tab A500 into a gaming system with the help of an XBOX controller and an HDMI-cable connected to a 40" Samsung TV. And the game they decided to port? Shadowgun, naturally.
While the game looks pretty sweet on the Iconia – even, perhaps, as nice as it looks on the Samsung TV– we do notice some lag time. So perhaps it's still too early to declare the end of gaming consules.
That said, it looks like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus will support Bluetooth-enabled gaming devices, which is a mighty fine thing.
