The lights are on
Nvidia's upcoming device, Project Shield, isn't coming out until the second quarter of the year, but the company is filling the time with a series of product demos. The latest video clip shows how PC owners will be able to stream their games onto the handheld.
About half of the video is spent on a video overview of EA's Need for Speed: Most Wanted, but there is some meat near the beginning. It shows how Steam users (and just about anyone else) can stream their games from their PCs and play them on Project Shield. Nvidia isn't talking about the device's range, but we still don't even know how much this thing is going to cost.
For a look at Project Shield's Android support, take a look at an earlier video.

This is sorta cool BUT 3DS and the Vita can do so much more than this. I like how you can play PC games on a handheld but....I just don't feel excited about this.
editing between 00.31s - 00.36s is terrible. I have a feeling the game crashed then when it was working they redid it. lol.
will it support non steam games like Goldeneye Source? I would love to take that on the go with me or play Halo PC on the go too.
Nice but just to small for my pc gaming.
I love when Dumbo talks, and who knew he was such a poet. "Find a repair shop, drive right through get a fresh coat of paint and you're as good as new". He even had good timing and word spacing. Though how was the "Sheild" the highlight in this video?
Too bad you can't download a game straight to the device, then play wherever. I don't need a huge screen to play most games. As long as the resolution if good enough to read words or menus, that would be awesome.
i might invest some money into one of these, idk looks decent to me
This does kinda look cool.
So if I'm at home, I just stream it from my PC and if i'm on the go I can only play android games? Why not when I'm at home, play on the PC and when I'm on the go I play on my phone?
So, it's a wireless 5" screen with a controller. You still have to have the PC to run both at the same time. Seems like a big waste of money...unless you need to take a dump :)
Does anyone else think this is retarded?
No thanks I'll use my new Laptop baby
i was ready to jump on this, but if you have to keep the pc on to use it, then whats the point? im not trying to have my pc blow on me by itself at home cause of some stupid mishap that happens when im on my handheld forever away
