    As long as it still has somewhat of a dev community, it should be coming to you soon ;) . Just look at the Galaxy Player Forums on XDA, for example. They're just barely catching up.

    I have a HTC One that it support OPENGL 3. But I will buy Shield cuz it has Tegra 4 which doesn't support OPENGL ES 3 cuz it supports Full OpenGL like in PC development. Also it has real controls.

    Too bad nothing will be developed with it for open gl 3.0 because things are still developed for the majority (android 2.2). Can't blame the developers, this is due to androids wide selection of hardware. Perhaps if Google demanded all new phones be made at 4.3 spec, this would maybe be considerable in the next 1-2 years....

    The new HTC One? I have it too ^^
    Phone for the next 3-4 years (at last for me), is a good one.

    I have the Galaxy Ace II x. It's still running Ice Cream Sandwich. So I can't even get 4.1 let alone 4.2. .__.'

    I have a nexus 4 so I assume I'll be seeing this update sooner rather than later.
    All and all it seems to be a update to hold people over till 5.0 or Key lime pie as I believe its codenamed.

    My HTC Glacier's running 4.2 atm. Not too many changes, but I"ll flash 4.3 on it if I'm bored one day.

    Yes I have the new one. But I don't like to play on it, I don't like to play with touch controls at all. Thats why I'm getting the NVIDIA Shield

    Do you need a device with Open GL 3.0 support? Or just to use those features? If you do then this seems really limited.

    OpenGL ES 3.0 won't give 300% performance boosts and I can't honestly see why they guys behind the Dolphin port trust so much in it.

    Now the real question... did their optimizations cause the system requirements to jump up again? :/
