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
