Does the world really need Nvidia’s shield?

Yesterday at CES, Taiwanese computing powerhouse Nvidia shocked the world by announcing their very own handheld gaming console; an Android-powered, Steam-integrated game-centric device that would also allow gamers to not only play native Android games, but also to stream games from their PC’s. In a world where Sony’s latest handheld can barely get off the ground, does anybody really need or even want this thing?

I think what they really should have done is promote Tegra 4 on the android devices. Release a controller that could sync with the said smartphones.

Smartphones already have HDMI. I think being able to play android games on the Smartphone, Old console roms (Nes, Snes, PS1, 2, Mame etc), all of that combined with the capability of being able to steam games from a home PC would have been amazing.

Imagine having a game steamed from your PC to your Cellphone and be outputted onto your HDTV, Playable with a wireless controller, all in 1080p.

We've been doing that for a while now. Connect ps3 controller to an ICS android device, use hdmi out.

I like it because I can stream the pc games to any room.

I would love to play metro:last light maxed out on the toilet. Guess I am alone.

I agree. Streaming PC games to a 720p small screen is somewhat ridiculous. Nvidia said playing games on PC has the disadvantage of sitting at computer desk, but if you get sore from playing PC for long periods then you should take a break, get some fresh air, not pick up the Shield and resume gaming on couch. And the external touch screen is awkward. I cant imagine being able to play using the handheld and touch the screen in a fluid manner.. This is just another tech gimmick that will probably sell to break even but i don't think it will sell enough to attract global attention
