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 seems like it could be good, but there are 2 things that determine if I would consider buying it or not.
1: I want to stream my games outside of my house, because if I'm in my house, I could just go on my PC.
2: This hopefully won't be overpriced, otherwise it isn't worth it
looks horrible. look how close the analog sticks are to each other...
Also this has a very limited audience
That is sweet!
Can;t get used to it.
its like... xbox controller look + ps3 buttons + screen.
Wait? Console quality on-the-go? With a game library to boot? Looks like the Vita has a MAJOR rival.
It would be so awesome if this had a streaming distance of like a mile because i live right next to my school and we have a 45 minute homeroom were we can do whatever we want so it'd be perfect. But I doubt itd happen.
