    Default Playbook bluetooth games?

    Hi guys,
    I have 3 playbooks in the family and 4 more in my close circle of friends.
    Often, we are together and we want to play multiplayer games. I`ve seen a thread about online multiplayer games but i'm looking for games via bluetooth.
    So...are there any games playable through bluetooth?
    If no, is it because the playbook isnt good at that or because developpers dont do it?
    Thanks

    Developers don't, or more properly, can't use BT in their apps because current APIs do not include necessary access to the hardware.
    Show off PlayBook's magnetometer! Just point and see What's up.

    And for BB10 is this a problem or devs can already include it in games?

    To the best of my knowledge, there are APIs for BT in the NDK but not the Air SDK. You may or may not see some BT capable games in BB10 depending entirely on whether or not developers choose to implement them. If you know of any such games for BBOS, you can contact the devs and ask them. if they have any plans for BB10.
