Speaking of Polygon, they seem to have a spam problem…

“Take on thousands of the best Android games with stunning graphics and smooth gameplay-including titles optimised for the NVIDIA® Tegra® processor and controller support. You can even run the most popular game emulators available on Google Play™ to relive your retro gaming days.”
— Nvidia’s Shield Tablet newsletter encourage use of emulators, which in itself isn’t illegal or anything, but most of the ROMs being played certainly are. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a hardware manufacturer talking up emulators as a selling point to a mainstream device. Maybe this says something about how interesting the games on Google Play are to serious gamers?

Nice branded network cross-linkage on Polygon. If you’re interested in the actual cosplay story, it’s available over at Vox.
