    Now that I have a Moga Pro game controller, I am exploring the best way to use z10 as a game console.

    First I could connect my z10 to my Dell LCD via HDMI. Is there any game which outputs to HDMI in full1080? So far I find game which mirrors the phone display and hence 720 only.

    The worse is for portrait games which only make use of 1/3 of the TV. I can rotate my LCD to portrait but I can't find an option to rotate the HDMI output. Will OS 10.3 support that?

    Any other thought in using z10 as a game console?

    Thanks.

    I like the idea. I want to do the same thing. You should try to find a emulator (nes, n64, sega) and roms for them. You can Google a list of games that you can use a controller with.

    Retroarch is a good native BB10 emulator that supports a wide variety of console formats. You can find the download within the CB forums (not available in BBWorld).

    I use my z30 as a console all the time. I have emulators running NES and snes games as well as top titles from the BlackBerry World. It's impressive what you can do with it.

    The only console that outputs games in 1080p currently is the PS4. 720p is plenty good for the Z10.

    Where do you download your emulator from? I've tried Retroarch the bb10 version for my Z30 and I do not get it to display properly. It only shows the outlay of two controller buttons. And I can't seem to find a setting to adjust it. I have been using the android version, but I can't get a controller to work with it. I have a wii remote connected via bluetooth, but it won't work. All I'm doing is playing nes and atari games.

    Any advice would be great!

    I got it to run on both but the blackberry one doesn't recognize the roms and the android one does.
