The lights are on
Last month, Nvidia announced Project Shield, a handheld device that plays Android and PC games. Now the company has released a video of it in action, in a game called Real Boxing that shows a pair of pugilists battling it out in the ring.
Real Boxing features 20 different boxers, with their own signature style. Players will be able to train in a variety of minigames, such as skipping rope and using the speed bag. Nvidia says it's all possible because of Project Shield's Tegra 4 quad-core processor and 72-core GeForce GPU. Take a look for yourself below.

This is gonna give Nokia's N-Gage a run for its money.
It ain't no Fight Night, but the game looked pretty decent. Also, I don't why I found the fact that this video was recorded during the lunch hour to be hilarious.
After seeing this in action, I'm a bit more optimistic on its chances. I'm probably not going to buy one, but it doesn't look half-bad.
Looks nice to play, but the appeal is appalling.
But who is it for? It looks like it'd be nice for emulators but I can already do that on my phone, and I don't really know why I'd stream games from my PC if I had to be near it. It has a touchscreen but there's no reason to choose it over a tablet due to it's attached controller and awkward design, and it's likely to be rather pricey. Just seems like a poorly thought out product.
so...this is like a portable laptop???
Is this an android game or a remote streaming of a game running on the pc?
