GameStop Creates Digital Distribution Executive Position -- A Sign Of Things To Come?

Game retail chain GameStop has just announced that it plans to release its own Android-powered gaming tablet. The touch-screen device will be available some time next year, and, according to GameStop president Tony Bartel, will offer "a few benefits that you're not going to get elsewhere."

GameStop's yet-unnamed device will come with some "casual" games pre-installed, and the company is also working on a streaming game service like OnLive for the device. Not only that: GameStop plans to create a dedicated controller for the tablet, so you won't be playing every game by swiping your fingers.

"We've created a controller that we're testing to really allow for immersive gameplay," Bartlett told GamesIndustry.biz. "It's hard to imagine how to stream a game - let' say Modern Warfare 3 - onto a tablet and then play it with your finger," he added.

Back in March, GameStop acquired game-streaming service Spawn Labs, setting the stage for the introduction of streaming games from the company.

As we learn more about the GameStop tablet, we will, of course, let you know.
