Although game consoles like PlayStation and Xbox are very popular they are slowly fading away and being replaced by mobile platforms. The newest trend is to take mobile devices like Android which are cheaper and turn them into gaming consoles that can be played on larger TV’s. Many are attempting to do this and the latest is Green Throttle Arena which turns your Kindle Fire HD into a gaming console. The great thing about Green Throttle is that it required minimal hardware to get started. Let’s take a look at what’s required.
All you need to get started to turn your Kindle Fire HD into a gaming console is a micro-HDMI to HDMI cable, controller, and the app. Green Throttle sells packages for 1 player that includes 1 controller, 1 micro-HDMI to HDMI, and micro-USB power adapter for only $49.95. The two player packages which is the same but with 2 controllers is just $89.99. The controllers connect to the Kindle Fire using bluetooth and is similar to console game controllers.
The games that you can play will not be any apps from the Amazon Appstore but rather select games. This is probably the real limitation currently but hopefully as it gets popular the amount of games will increase. But this is definitely a cheap and great way to get the best gaming quality out of the Kindle Fire HD . It can be great fun for kids and the whole family to play together with up to 4 controllers. The app is free to download so it might be worth taking a look and seeing if there is enough games that interest you to invest. Let us know what you think about Green Throttle Arena app. The app can also be used on other Android devices as well.
