Google is rumored to be releasing a Nexus TV Android-powered set-top box this year, and the search giant has recently acquired parts of a gaming company that might provide some hints at what’s on the way. PandoDaily reports that Matt Crowley and Karl Townsend, of Green Throttle Games, have both joined Google thanks to a recent deal. Green Throttle Games started shipping an Android Bluetooth gaming controller last year, allowing Kindle Fire HD users to turn Amazons’s tablet into a gaming console that connects to a TV via HDMI. It’s not clear how much of the technology behind Green Throttle Games’ Android controller has been acquired, and the company is still selling the device at retailers. Two of the co-founders are joining Google, but the third, Charles Huang, reportedly retains rights over the Green Throttle business.
