DEA MyPlay Android 4.0.4 Gaming Tablet from Walmart

I was recently at Walmart looking for a keyboard when I came across this cheap gaming tablet. This seems to be the trend lately, a not unwelcome trend in my eyes.

Lately we have been hearing about Android gaming tablets or consoles like NVIDIA Project Shield or OUYA. The possibilities that Android has brought to the table seems to be endless and coming from a gamer's perspective, I like where this is going.

It's true that I barely use game apps on my phone and little more on my 10.1" tablet, but that does not mean that I don't want to. Like everyone else, I have played numerous games from Angry Birds to Wheres My Water, but when I have dabbled in console emulators or higher end first persons shooters, I have been disappointing with the controls.

My options were limited even a year ago for physical controls on an Android, but now I have many choices, most of which include cheap, no-name brand tablets. I chose the JXD-s7300B for it's specs and design and because I don't mind the Hong Kong to Canada waiting time.

If you don't want to wait, there is a gaming tablet at Walmart! Mind you that is IS cheap, in price and in hand. It is all plastic, but the responsiveness is alright and it has access to the Play store. Now go to Walmart and try out the display model, and you can decide for yourself.
