Short Cuts: With Unity and gamepad support, BlackBerry is now on its game
|

Last week saw BlackBerry announce some new BlackBerry 10 devices at its BlackBerry Live event.

This week, however, at Nordic Game 2013 its game team has been on hand to highlight how devices such as the Z10 are an opportunity for game developers.

One big announcement is the Unity engine will now support BlackBerry 10 (alongside iOS, Android and Windows Phone) meaning a lot more games will be available.

BlackBerry is also keen on supporting Bluetooth controllers such as the MOGA Pro, enabling you to run games on your BlackBerry 10 device, while controlling them with the joypad and viewing them on your smart TV, thanks to a HDMI cable.
