With one of these can you run the android emulators available on google play and pair a bluetooth controller? Is the emulation pretty good? I had a Droid 2 and it seemed pretty decent but I would love to be able to output it to a TV and hook up a controller with actual buttons.

This seems like a good article, its from January though

Hmmm, I would like the composite option but I also really want bluetooth. You are talking about the Smartdroid TV box, is your wireless keyboard using a USB dongle or Bluetooth?

The mini x plus looks good too but I don't think it has bluetooth either.

I would like to hook up a PS3 controller.

Maybe I will wait for an OUYA

it has a usb dongle for the KB , dunno if it got BT i aint even checked. will do later.Not sure , although i dont see why not that it couldnt accept a usb bt dongle though has 2 usb ports
I haven't been following it too closely, will OUYA have composite video out option and Bluetooth? I have read the controller was not getting rave reviews so it would be nice to have the option of connecting a dualshock3

Dang, so I got a little android box, wish it had bluetooth but I will likely get a dongle.

Holy crap though, I am running XBMC on it and it's freaking amazing. Why have I never heard of this before? It seems like the wave of the future, this stuff is going to blow up.

hmmm, so xbmc on OUYA isn't that good I guess.

it runs great on this little box I got. It is a digixstream x2 I believe. it has analog video out, just no bluetooth.....
