I think the requirement for a Geforce GPU is totally artificial and a bit crap to be honest. It'll be software on the PC that's doing it.

nVidia Sheild = Ultimate On-The-Go Emulator All-In-One, or OUTGAIO. Not enough? It also plays the most demanding mobile games (which are getting continualy better looking). I'm not sure this will be a hit, but I think Nintendo and Sony should take notice. This open platform approach has already caused then trouble when they try to justify their current hand helds. I can't see either coming back with anything that isn't simply a brand mobile OS device.

I thought the NVIDIA cloud was amazing.
The SHIELD just isn't. I don't think many people will buy this, and I most certainly won't either. I like to sit on my chair and play games with a keyboard and mouse.
I just wonder how many people will buy this. Almost no one that I know has a PSP now, no one with a Nintendo 3DS or w/e. Why? Because the games aren't that entertaining and smartphones have a great selection of games now.
Just my verdict.

If the Shield had a games line-up like the PS Vita had, then I'd agree with you. BUT IT DOESN'T, WHICH IS THE PROBLEM!!! You're initially going to be playing games from the Play Store, which, I'm sorry, just doesn't cut it. If someone is choosing between a mobile gaming device, they will 99 times out of 100, go for a DS or a PS Vita over the Shield. The Shield's superior hardware doesn't mean jack because you are playing on a 5" screen. At that size, people do not care much for graphical fidelity. If they did, they sure as hell wouldn't be playing on a handheld mobile device. Thus, the PS Vita's hardware is more than enough, and what things ultimately come down to are the quality of the games that release on each platform. IF Android DOES get good games, then it's because the overwhelming majority of the SmartPhone market is dominated by Android, and most people will be playing these Android specific superhits on their smart phones, not the Shield, which means that these titles will be designed for SMARTPHONES, not the Shield, thereby not taking advantage of its hardware.

The overwhelming majority of Android device users will play Android games on their android phones or tablets.
The overwhelming majority of PC gamers will play PC games on their PCs.

The Shield ends up doing everything worse than the alternative device that anyone who owns a Shield is already going to own anyway.

I guess that means both of us plan on not getting one. In addition to the rest of the world.

Android games aren't designed for specific chips. They're designed for a broad array of android phones and devices - and like many have mentioned, the games on google play store, well, suck.

It's an interesting idea but I can't see this succeeding in the market. The streaming is a joke since it requires a GTX 650+ and WHAT IS THE POINT? If you have A PC in your house, why would you play your games on a handheld via streaming? Dumbest idea ever...

If I wanted the low caliber of games offered on the android/iOS platform, I could just buy games and play them on my iphone. Why would anyone buy this since you can easily play the same BAD games on your smartphone or tablet?? I seriously don't see the point.

^ Wow to the pair of you.

Porthios. Android already ahs some Tegra only games, and I think they would be quite driven to getting developers to port their games over to it if they went serious with it.

But, mainly, I love how matter of factly you are and how you talk about this as though it's been on the market for 6 months.

Sync it with Steam and play on the console, or a TV. Many Android games compatible with it and Android gaming starting to get serious.

Looks like a win to me. If it's priced competitively with a PS Vita, the fact that it has a full sized pad blows the Vita away.

Yeah that's what i'm thinking tbh.

 

TBH I'd really enjoy to be able to stream wirelessly (somehow) my PC games to my HDTV and play them while on my couch. I mean let's be honest, the majority of adventure/action games right now are console ports that play better with a controller than a mice/keyboard. With this thing you could get a console gaming experience without having to deal with bad graphics, FOV, resolution, noise etc.

If done right, I see a bigger market for Tablet gaming...........

For some, I may spell that out for you, and how that would work?
