Tiny little video streamer/game device similar to amazon's fire TV.

I wonder if the gamepad object and google player integration works out of the box with this one.

I'll pick one up and report back in Nov when they ship.

Doesn't it work on the Ouya? If it does, I have a feeling that it would on this as well. Just a guess though.

It works on the ouya. But not on the amazon fire TV. So it could go either way..

I see. Did a bit of digging. Still no clear answer.

Android clearly supports gamepads. I'm not finding documentation though as to whether chrome has access confirmed access. Though I did find this.

With that said, I'm going to have to take an educated guess and say it will. I have a feeling it doesn't work on the Fire because of Silk. FireOS is heavily modified from Android, including the built-in browser.
