So, Nvidia Shield, anyone?

8 posts in this topic

Nvidia Shield is a handheld game console by Nvidia, released on July 31, 2013.[3]

Shield runs on Android, featuring a flip-up 130 mm (5-inch) touchscreen display[4] with 1280x720 pixel resolution.[5] The device is similar in shape to a Xbox 360 controller and similar in control setup to a Dualshock controller, with two analog joysticks, a D-pad, and other buttons. It is the first device to utilize Nvidia's Tegra 4 processor.

Don't know enough about it to really get much interest, I'm not really big on hand held gaming devices as I can usually get by with just my phone and never really have a desire for more. I think it would depend on where the games were coming from, if its going to be a play store only type thing then no thanks however if there was a bigger and better range with the type of game a Vita can handle then I might be interested.

Hmm. The reviews seem to be pretty consistent: the hardware is good, the price point and lack of games (unless you're streaming them) is the bad.

I actually looked into one a few months back, I was most interested in the streaming from PC using Steam Big Picture. Then I realized my aging CPU did not meet the minimum requirements. So, I never picked one up.

 

The biggest aspect I found when researching it was people loved, absolutely loved it, as an emulation machine. Old NES games. Sega Saturn & Genesis games. The list goes on. People said it was a hell of an emulation handheld.

 

So if you are into either of the above (and your PC meets the minimum requirements) it seems like it could be a decent handheld, albeit it a very niche one.

 

I guess at the end of the day you can say that for every handheld on the market though, and this is coming from someone who owns a 3DS and a Vita.
