In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

GameStop Prepping Android Tablet

The outlook is grim for home consoles and retail packaged goods. Soon it will be only mobile devices, the cloud, and digital distro. Although that's still a ways off, GameStop is getting prepared for the retail goods afterlife by releasing a GameStop branded Android tablet.

At the moment, there aren't any details available. GameStop has only said that they'll be calling it a "GameStop certified gaming platform", meaning that despite being a be-all tablet, it's focus will be on gaming.

There are already a number of games on the Android Market available which will presumable run on this upcoming tablet. We wouldn't be surprised if GameStop opened up their own app market of sorts, maybe tying in with GameStop's Kongregate, which already has an app available for Android allowing you to play flash games.

With the gaming market growing ever so strongly on tablets and smartphones, gamers need to be prepared for these devices to eventually be seen on par with traditional gaming experiences. You could be playing a GameStop certified, PlayStation certified, Activision certified, and GameRevolution certified tablet come 2015. (Sounds pretty awesome to me)
