Honestly I see what Nvidia was trying to do with the shield but I don't think they pulled it of. The shield looks more like a prototype than an actual production unit.

The razer edge had many flaws but at least its layout and functionality was good.

I say good effort better luck next time.

Just read the review on Engadget and have to say that I am thoroughly impressed that it actually streams PC games to this device playing the latest PC games with barely any input lag through your wireless home network.

*Does require at least a GTX 650 and dual band wireless router...
YES, it does play Crysis 3 at the level that your PC can push frames at 720p...

I find this device different and intriguing but at this point, with cell phones and iPads already out, it's hard to push out portable gaming devices. With the higher cost ($300) and new hardware requirements (new GPU + Router is at least $200), i'd be spending $500 to walk around my house to play portable gaming...

I will skip on this, as I will always PC prefer gaming on a keyboard + mouse, and have my Galaxy S 4 and iPad mini for portable gaming, but will be looking forward to nVidia's ShadowPlay as that will give me another reason to upgrade my 2 580's if it actually works well...
But it can play Crysis 3!!!

Yeah,andt the PC streaming is still beta.

That would add so much latency, everything but casual games would be unplayable.

It’s a problem for every Android game system with physical controls, but worse, even those games that do support game controllers don’t all play nice with the Shield's joysticks and buttons.

And though the whole streaming application is clearly a Splashtop hack, with Windows visible underneath the surface, Nvidia won't let you control Windows at all, won't let you so much as remotely force-close a game when it fails to sync with the Shield. Nvidia's calling PC streaming a "beta" feature, and I have to agree.

So it doesnt play most android games very well, and the feature that people seem to covet, the PC streaming, only works on LAN, with an 6 series or newer NVIDIA GPU, dual band router, only plays 22 PC games which most are already a year+ old at the moment and is just a splashtop hack.

At $299, it still seems like a horrible purchase.

The challenge would be fun, even if I had to reduce the resolution and QOS the corporate network into oblivion biggrin.gif

I think you can play any game that is fully supoorted on Steam Big Picture mode.

Nope not really. You have to try amazon if they decide to sell one day.

This is the only plus for me. Wifey is pregnant so I might consider getting one and lay on the couch with her and play some games. 

 

I hate mobile games so playing PC games could be nice.
