Console in your pocket: 1080p gaming on LG’s Optimus 2x

Nvidia's Tegra 2 imbues LG's Optimus 2x with amazing graphics potential, including the ability to play PlayStation-2 caliber games on your TV at home, with the phone as a controller.

The promise of 1080p video output from a smartphone immediately makes us think of cramming an entire movie library full of Blu-ray rips into the phone for playback anywhere, but as it turns out, it has some interesting potential for gaming, too. Playing motion-controlled Android games on the LG Optimus 2x while outputting to the screen essentially turns the phone into a pocket console with graphics quality somewhere around a PlayStation 2. Sure, you’ll still have an HDMI cable tethering you to the TV, but it’s retro, right?
