I successfully edited my build.prop file to spoof a Droid 3 on Android Market. I was able to see, purchase, install, and run GTA 3 and Asphalt 6 directly from the Market.
Modern Combat 3 should
run correctly too, but I won't know for sure until my 32gig SD card comes in the mail. 4gigs isn't enough space for many games. ;)
Half the RAM aside, the Droid 3 is identical in CPU and GPU to the Nook Tablet so it seems like a superior choice to spoof from a compatibility standpoint.
IMO, the BEST choice would be to spoof a Droid Bionic (or even a Droid RAZR) since it has the same CPU, GPU, and RAM. Unfortunately I wasn't able to find the build.prop to one of those to test.
Spoofing the latter would probably overcome the "incompatible game, please request a refund screen" that I encountered when I attempted to install backed up .apks of Nova and 9mm from my Droid X onto my Nook Tablet.

Note: The original permissions of the build.prop
SHOULDN'T change if you simply edit the original file. If they somehow do change, simply remount the /system directory as R/W, long press build.prop, press permissions, and make the appropriate selections.
After that I exited back to my app drawer and launched the Nook Hidden Settings app that I installed from the thread here on the NT development forum.
Then I went to
Application Settings->Manage Applications->All->Market
and clicked the
Finally, I rebooted, clicked on my market icon, accepted Google's terms, and then I was off to the races.
