The transaction would support Google’s entry into video game console and set-top TV box market.
Google has reportedly acquired certain assets of the video game and gaming peripheral developer Green Throttle Games for an undisclosed sum.
The move is expected to be part of the company’s plan to set its footprint in the video game console market and also make its own set-top TV box.
Under the deal, Green Throttle Games co-founders Matt Crowley and Karl Townsend will join Google, while co-founder Charles Huang will not join Gooble but retain the brand rights of Green Throttle.
California-based Green Throttle Games had earlier developed a new games controller for devices running on Google’s Android operating system.
The games controller will allow the users to connect to mobile devices with the help of Arena app using Bluetooth and help to simplify gaming on tablets and smartphones that is difficult without physical buttons.
In November 2013, the Green Throttle team pulled its Arena app from the Google Play and Amazon Appstore for Android along with all backend support for the app.
