Watch the real-time demo of NVIDIA's Project SHIELD, announced Sunday, Jan. 6 at CES 2013 in Las Vegas.
Tegra 4 is simply a beast of a processor. This is when the now mobile processors have surpassed the current generation (in terms of graphics.) This is when I get happy about the possibilities of future mobile devices. A Tegra 4 5 inch 1080p PSV would just be the most epic thing to come out.
I love the tech but will people buy it? That's the big question.
its a cool device if the price is right i'm game but what kind of games will it play can it play anything on PC or is it like consoles what ever games are for the device that's it deal or will it have cross play like steam and ps3 did with portal 2 buy the game you get the steam digital download for the PC and one more thing if it plays Minecraft i'll totally buy.
I might buy this device after all as for the following reasons. 1. Gamepad is like proper gamepad with L1R1 and L2R2. 2. Second it supports native output and playback of 4K resolution video over HDMI. 3. Games aren't gonna cost fortune like other handheld devices. 4. Longer battery life. 5. Finally the real talent (which are freelance people) will be able to release games without the need of greedy publishers, scrutinizing/micromanaging studios and art hating/color hating/bunch of corporate high level staff who wouldn't know even how to play a game but rules and interferes or restrict talented skilled geniuses from bringing some new ideas in the gaming industry. Questions. 1. Screen ... is it an OLED/LED/LCD??? 2. Will there be charge for accessing Tegrazone. 3. Latency when streaming game from PC. 4. Will u be able to stream just video games or can also stream video files/audio files??? Thanks.
HA! And they say handheld gaming is dead... Thanks to Android handheld gaming is more alive than ever. Android is really a great force to be reckoned with for Apple, Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft. It is a great contender for universal gaming standard.
Tbh It's not really that impressive to me of course it's gonna beat hardware from hardware for 7 year old technology. Granted it's nice, but not exactly surprising that it is.
It really is a beast. They played a 4k video from android store. Also here is Assasins Creed 3 streaming from pc. http://www.youtube.com/watc... If there was anything I like about wiiU it's gaming anywhere in my home and continuing my game! But with pc quality!! But also it has 24hr battery life. At 0:23 those are extra batteries(the yellow thingys) for gaming sessions. Full conference. http://www.nvidia.com/objec... This thing just needs the right price.
Also, I was just thinking, that if the screen cant go back any further than it looks to be able to, it will be really really awkward to use
LOL! You think Tegra4 is more powerful that 7th gen consoles?
The ability to play native 4K video and much more and are you surprised that it can beat seven year old technology.
4K android games or streaming 4K? Because either way, who CARES?
I fail to see how Tegra 4 surpassed anything, when it is simply streaming the result of a PC? How does that make Tegra 4 a beast of a processor?
this video isn't a real-time demo of anything.
It's a real time demo of a 3D render of the handheld... They did say that this demo was made using Unreal Engine 4.
totally misleading. This is not a real time demo of Shield. It may be a real time demo of their processing but it totally misleads the viewer on what you think you are going to see.
Ummm.....well, they showed it to be people in time that was real, so uh..... Nah, I've got nothing. It's a CGI teaser with simulated images.
This video is a lie. Just a nice close-up of the damned thing.
this thing is going to be so freaking cool, keep it under $300 and day one for me, its android so it will run all emulators too, play gba, ds, ps2 games on it (only ones you own so you don't go to jail, or live life as a filthy pirate)
plus, pooping and playing far cry 3.....awesome, ac3 while waiting for wife by the door (sometimes thats 10 min or more after she's "ready" to go)
also, the developer potential for this is great
i'm excited for this, ps4, steambox (just to see it, have a beast pc, don't need it) and xboxnext and what the wii u has to offer in the future too!
Nvidia no thanks every spammy add in pc games makes me never want to buy their products.
this is what the vita was missing lack of hd support games like ps3 quality this is the only reason many of us are not interested in vita. when the adds where shown last yr i though vita could play all ps3 titles and even play on the hd tv but sadly it didn't atleast sony should have made ps2 games playable on vita well it doesn't matter look at nvidia tegra 4 you can play all pc games on it. now,finally the vita as got a real rival or competition not the 3ds which is a rival for psp and certainly not wii u for it's not a handheld console like vita.
Shield will only stream the games from your PC via LAN. This device will not actually have PC games loaded on it. When you are out and about the games will be limited to Android & Tegra chip games like what is found on Google Play.
Yeah... how are they gonna price this thing? Knowing all the things in it, it'll be $300+...
Looks like crap destined to go unnoticed , just saying it how it is. You think this thing is gunna take away Resi , Kingdom Hearts , Monster Hunter , Pso , Soul sacrifice and all that away from the 3DS and vita ? no chance.
It will be released , and then forgotten about. Doesn't matter about its graphics , It's not a threat to 3DS or Vita.
The most I can see this doing is selling about 250K and then being forgotten about....
Don't know if I like the flip up screen. Though I'm not much of a mobile gamer. I prefer the big boys instead and for casual wait time my phone suffices. What would be REALLY cool is if it came with an hdmi plug-in so you could play on any HDTV you are around. Now THAT would be cool.
we shall see what kind of support it receives.. It does look cool but i dont see it going very far
Wow what a demo go buy :))))
It's a neat piece of hardware, but I'm not really interested in buying a dedicated handheld just to play a bunch of android games. Also, all my GPUs in my computers are AMD so the streaming thing is pretty useless in my case (If I understand the tech - it is only for Nvidia GPUs, right?)...
Yes, your understanding about the tech being for Nvidia GPUs is CORRECT. You can only stream gaming off Nvidia Kepler-based GeForce GTX-powered PCs. Just like you, ALL my PCs are AMD-powered; therefore, we are not in favour. But if my PC was Nvidia-powered, I would get this device primarily for streaming my games off my PC and secondary for Android gaming off Google Play and NVIDIA TegraZone.
