Roku expands game offerings on set-top box

updated 11:10 pm EDT, Tue August 16, 2011

Titles include casual games, Texas Hold 'em

Less than a month after Roku launched its second-generation set-top boxes with new gaming capabilities, the company has expanded the list of available game titles. New content includes popular puzzle game Sodoku and poker variation Texas Hold 'em, along with other casual games such as Dracula's Coffin, Rockswap Adventures, Patience, Kaboom and Mahjong Fruits.

The connected boxes arrived on the market with puzzle video game Angry Birds as a highlighted feature. Some of the games take advantage of a Bluetooth remote that provides an input method similar to that of Nintendo's Wii controllers.

The new titles are already available for Roku 2 systems. [via GigaOM]
