[Anandtech]NVIDIA Shield Up for Preorder May 20 for $349, Ships in June - Page 10

post #91 of 157
The PC streaming feature is a "beta" feature and the verge has reported that it is riddled with incompatibilities and constant disconnects. This was on their front page yesterday.

Furthermore, you're acting like your PC games are actual Shield games. Give me a break. The shield can only stream to the same household within 100 feet, so please tell me how this is useful. I can't play borderlands 2 on an xbox 360 pad. If you can play FPS games on a 360 pad, I almost want to laugh at that. Let's summarize:

1) Shield only streams within your house hold.
2) PC Streaming constantly disconnections and has incompatibilities
3) Works with about 40-50% of bigscreen mode games (see theverge)
4) ONLY WORKS IN THE SAME HOUSEHOLD WITHIN 100 feet of your PC.
5) Is a BETA feature, not fully supported by nvidia
6) ONLY WORKS IN THE SAME HOUSEHOLD WITHIN 100 feet of your PC (again for emphasis)
7) MOBAs and MMOs not playable due to control scheme. Many games not usable.


Please tell me how streaming is useful if it ONLY works within your house. If I could stream while TRAVELLING, that would be useful. Streaming WITHIN MY HOUSE is completely 100% worthless. Why the HECK would I want to do that as opposed to sitting in front of my PC?

Oh. My bad. Nvidia shield, the way you're meant to take a dump. Hey, if you want to pay 350$ for it go right ahead. There are various sayings about people who aren't intelligent about spending their money.

I've Beta'd one and I really like it...Even for it's price point...Controls are a little wonky but, it's very similar to the Xbox 360 controller so, you'll get used to it rather fast.

It's basically a PSP only with "real games" as opposed to what's available...

Don't quite understand the hate but, playing Bioshock Infinite from my bed or while on the toilet -- Pretty awesome. Just sayin.

It's just pre-orders. Soon those people who pre-ordered will cancel their pre-orders once they realized that they been doped by Nvidia into thinking that they can play this device anywhere.

Look, here's the thing with it. The Shield controller is hadicapped on FPS on PC. Playing it against PC gamers with keyboard/mouse will end up those on Shield losing the game. Its gameplay is typical of a console gameplay using standard controller. You can get this kind of gameplay on PS Vita & Wii U's Gamepad. There's really nothing on the Shield to sell.

Please tell me how streaming is useful. YOU CAN ONLY DO IT IN YOUR OWN HOUSE. rolleyes.gif If I could stream while TRAVELLING, that would be useful. Streaming WITHIN MY HOUSE is completely 100% worthless. Why the HECK would I want to do that as opposed to sitting in front of my PC?

Oh. My bad. Nvidia shield, the way you're meant to take a dump. Hey, if you want to pay 350$ for it go right ahead. There are various sayings about people who aren't intelligent about spending their money.

The original PSP's could only stream IN YOUR HOUSE...Itouch? In your HOUSE...In fact, it practically NEVER worked on other networks -- Want me to go this route?

I find it remarkable how willing you are to knock progress and not actually support moving forward with something like this.

Does it only work within 100 feet of the PC? I'd actually give it 50 -- Do games crash right now? Yes but, they've been working on fixes and they've promised it will be fixed by launch...Can you do the same thing with other currently available technology? Yes...But, again, people bought the original PSP, didn't they? The original Itouch?

The point here is simple.

1) They've already profited from this venture considering the cost of the product...So, quite frankly, buy it or not, Nvidia doesn't care if you do or don't.
2) It's goal is to eventually work for "all" GFWL products as it currently does...I don't have to see theverge, I can look immediately to my right.
3) Every single "point" you've made is what's already been said about practically every new innovation of this type of technology in the past decade...Come up with something new.

If I choose to play Skyrim while taking a dump and using this product -- I got it for free so, I'm going to use it every single time I take a dump -- That's my prerogative and certainly not yours.

Nvidia profited from the Titan, 20 hours from launch.
Nvidia profited from Shield, weeks BEFORE launch.

I'm very intelligent about spending my money and would've actually pursued this through the dealer program -- I can't tell you what that would've cost but, certainly significantly less than $350!

Is there anything else I can help you with today because...I'm getting bored. rolleyes.gif

So true. For this product to sell I think (2) criterias must be met.
1) Ability to stream PC games on WAN
2) Able to connect extra peripheral controllers such as keyboard & mouse so as not to disenfranchised FPS PC gamers.

This product probably will sell by just having the ability to stream PC games on WAN (same network gameplay just not gonna cut it). This is not for casual gamers to play. You need to have a GTX 650 or higher video card to use the PC streaming feature so the AMD gamers already disenfranchised.

Or Nvidia will replace 1 of the 2 analog sticks with a trackball. Using the standard controller on Shield will get you owned by others with mouse/keyboard in FPS games.

Nvidia's first foray to handheld gaming business is an epic failure of gigantic proportion. It basically copied the concept of another gaming console & it comes at much higher price.

Not exactly and apples to apples comparison though.  :P

 

Nvidia's handheld isn't the best idea, however the "streaming your PC games to another device" part is great!  Make it happen.

The concept of streaming is like that what you'll find on the Wii U & PS4. On the Wii U is Bluetooth (console to Gamepad) streaming while on the PS4 it's Wi-Fi (console to PS Vita) streaming. On the PS Vita at least you can stream on WAN via cloud. I just don't get why Nividia developed the Shield past concept design. Hard to imaging playing FPS like COD or Battlefield games against others using keyboard & mouse. It's probably fun for some people playing this while on the toilet or lying down in bed but you can do this too on the Wii U & PS Vita. It makes no sense spending $350 for a device which I think is useless for me.
