    I am considering picking up a Nvidia Shield console and I was wondering what the Shield has in terms of USB OTG compatibility with controllers.
    This was taken from the official NVIDIA Shield website. I wanted to plug in my official NES controller with a RetroLink NES to USB adapter that is connected to a USB OTG connecting cable. Would this work? I have tested it on a Nexus 7 and it works perfectly, so I assume that it would work on a Shield because they are both android devices. But you know what they say about assuming, it makes an "ass"out of "u" and "me" ( ASS-U-ME = assume).
    Can someone help me with this? Also, can I connect other USB gamepads as well?
