Clearly the skeptics in this thread underestimate the amount of time some of us spend on the toilet. biggrin.gif

Concept has merit but the market for this device would have to be tiny.

Anyone know if one PC can stream to two shield devices? If so I wonder if it would have to be the same game or if you can stream two seperate games/two instances of the same game - could make for some good co-op/multiplayer gaming.

according to this thread, nvidia will sell none of these.

If you're dreaming of all the PC games you'll be playing on the Shield, though, you might be disappointed to hear that there are still some kinks to be worked out, and Nvidia will be labeling the feature "beta" to manage expectations for at least a couple of months. Borderlands 2 in particular worked great in our brief test, but neither game's animations felt quite as fluid as on PC, and several times Nvidia had difficulty getting the Shield and PC to stay connected. The setup also requires an approved Wi-Fi router (dual-band MIMO) to function well, and doesn't yet work with all games: only a limited selection of Steam Big Picture mode and GeForce Experience titles are good to go as of today

Beta? Check. Drops connection repeatedly? Check. 349$? More expensive than 3DS and Vita, and also the same price as the xbox infinity with a 12 month live sub...check.

So much for the streaming feature. As if streaming from your PC in 5 minute increments while sitting on the toilet was useful anyway. rolleyes.gif I'm sorry, but this thing would be amazing if it streamed across the internet. Household streaming is useful to a very limited audience, and requires a Kepler GPU at that. That just isn't very useful to a lot of people. The fundamental question here is why the heck would anyone want to stream to a 5 inch handheld within 100 feet of their PC, when the controls likely won't work, and you can just use the PC instead. But! There's android games. Android games. rolleyes.gif

I don't get why this thing even exists. I was excited when it was first announced, but now that we know the price, the excitement is gone. They would have been better off making their own 7" or 10" tablet. Surely, they have to know that this is not going to sell well, so what is their angle that makes them think this a viable, profitable piece of hardware?

Overpriced! lachen.gif

Didn't expect any less from Nvidia! rolleyes.gif

I've have a hard time recommending this to anyone, pretty sure one day a someone will come up with better and more reasonably priced device that'll let me stream a game to a handheld device so I can play Battlefield 4 on my couch! thumb.gif

Wonder why not partner with Onlive. A portable console that requires a powerful PC is ridiculous.

Correct if I'm wrong(which I usually am), but didn't Nvidia talk about a cloud-based gaming service when they unveiled the SHIELD? Maybe a feature they'll implement down the road.
post #70 of 157
only reason I would want one is for the streaming function. I hope some company reverse engineers this and just build and sell a stream only version. or nvidea releases one themselves
