New Roku 2 line adds gaming Roku has updated its popular line of set-top boxes for 2011, adding gaming, a bluetooth motion remote and a much smaller form factor.
'Angry Birds' is the first game available for the boxes and its free if you buy the Roku 2 XS.

Cutting size down significantly, the Roku 2 boxes are just 3.3-inches, and under 1-inch high.

The low-end Roku 2 HD will sell for $60 with 720p output, the Roku 2 XD will sell for $80 with 1080p output and the flagship Roku 2 XS will sell for $100 including an ethernet port, USB port and 1080p output.

Each box will use 802.11n Wi-Fi and include a MicroSD slot but the remote is not bundled with the cheapest model.
