Nvidia's Project Shield is Destined to Fail

GR - "Is Nvidia's upcoming Project Shield a proper gaming device, or just a Wii U gamepad for your PC?" (Industry, Next-Gen, NVIDIA, Nvidia Tegra, Tech)

It seems everything
Is destined to fail, I've heard to the play station 5 will sell 7 units.

I heard the Wii U died already. PS3 was the worst and Every Xbox ever made broke.
Don't care about phones games but streaming Bioshock: Infinite maxed out while sitting on the toilet is a win imo. I hope this product does well. I like having control of my cloud gaming.

It's a crap argument this article is making.

We don't even know the price yet.

Droid based gaming with remote steam availability sounds perfect to me.

If anything this is looking good for google play and developers are taking notice at all the android gaming options that are opening up.

I'm a console and PC gamer. I own a Nexus 7 as well. I'm just a fan of gaming in general.

The article fails at journalism.

Project Shield=one big waste of time i doubt tech heads are going to support some expensive android/streaming gaming handheld

Plus the look isn't all that appealing. It's funny how anyone is trying to get into the console market. From now on it will be difficult for a new comer to actually succeed. Console gaming is own by Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo
Doesn't it look like those bad concept pictures for the next xbox? Lol

People only trust Nintnedo or SOny in the handheld market , In particular Nintnedo. IOS and Android is just loads of annoying kids playing crap on their phones....

Actually based on actual hard data, the majority of games sold and played on smartphones and tablets running iOS and Android are not kids as you claim... But Adults from ages 17-45...The same demographic as the vita and home consoles.
It's one of the reasons Nintendo and Sony has lost market share to these devices over the past 3 years. This trend continues at a rapid rate. Factor in cheap app games and you can see why.
Take a look at the numbers... Developers sure are and investors.

Oh... You know the price? Last time I looked a price wasn't provided.

Can you please grace us all with the expensive price you mentioned?

I will buy one, just to show support + it looks cool.
NexGen  +   785d ago
Are you a sheep? They don't care about your support or pro-anything flag waving...just your cash. Cough it up.
RuleofOne343  +   785d ago
So when you buy a game for your console are u not show support or when you buy said console are u not supporting a company.

I think it looks hideous, and I really don't see the point.

It's too big (and ugly) for most people to want to take it anywhere and if you're at home there are better gaming options available to most people who would ever be interested in this.

looks so fugly like a kid glued a cheap android knock off device to a cheap knock off 360 controller
RuleofOne343  +   785d ago
Ugly is that square controller w/ the usb stick , can't remember it name or maker but that Fk is ugly.
poo342947294792  +   785d ago
lol true they are both fudgly
blackbirdi  +   785d ago
i pray for that coz i hate android and iphone games... i want to stick with the old fashion games
Dread  +   785d ago
Is that an xbox controller? lol

on point: I need to see more before I fomulate an opinion on the device.

However, as a gamer, I welcome these types of iniciatives from other companies. I hoipe they do well.

O and on a final note, were are all those sony fans who complain incesantly about the "doom and gloom" articles that allgedly only target Sony. Why are they not defending the device and critizicing the article?

I guess becasue they only care for sony and not the gaming industry as a whole.

I can't see it getting very far in sales.. but there'll definitely be a little fan base for it. It's all about the content available that's dedicated to the platform.

The target group that'd be looking into buying this thing would be the hardcore tech geeks who are glued to buying the 'next big tech', if you will.. like me actually. It's just I don't exactly have the money to do that lol..

The casual folks who play Angry Birds every now & again obviously won't even think about buying it, more like try it out for sh*ts 'n' giggles or to see what all the fuss is about.

I don't want the system to turn out like N Gage.. but I've got the feeling that it'll turn out like it.. I hope not though as it's incredibly powerful for what it is & what it can do & I'd want it to succeed. It's got the specs that PS Vita should have had imo.. it's just a shame that the tech wasn't manufactured at the time the Vita was being planned & built, oh well.

I'm inclined to agree.

Here is the thing about "hardcore gamers"

If something doesn't fit a certain mold it is perfectly fine to write it off as a failure even if it's promising or hasn't even come out but don't you dare try to write off a console or handheld before it comes out or has flaws because that isn't right or isn't smart such as a Vita,PS3,3DS,360.

This is a promising project and sure it might not get it right the first time like most products don't put it makes no sense to just dismiss it because it doesn't fit the "status quo" it has some really promising technology in it.

nintendo does it again,the influence it has on the gaming market is remarkable.now get it in gear Big N i want to play retro classic games on my gamepad.
Rubberlegs  +   785d ago
Nvidia has been working on this for the past five years. Streaming devices like this have been released before the Wii U was even out. Airplay from Apple has been out for a couple years now.
