Not that I have any real experience with it, but isn't it more likely the hardware running android than android which would limit gaming ability?

also, iirc android is linux.

It uses a Linux kernel, but all the apps run in a Java VM.

imo androids greatest strength is its greatest weakness, its almost to easy to make shit for it, so there is a lot of shit to go through to find anything good.

IMO console looks amazing, ill be picking one up and developing on it, just cause i think its cool XD
