One of the tablet's features is its ability to run and play premium HD arcade games and complex online games. The 10-point touch display and six-axis motion sensing gyro meter control provide an entertainment experience on par with the best game consoles. Plus, the Acer Iconia Tab A500 comes with two full versions of games already on it, "Need for Speed: Shift" and "Let's Golf."
