Did Valve and Nvidia Just One-Up the Wii U?

Forvbes - If you’ve been following the news from CES 2013, you’ll know that NVIDIA has announced its Tegra 4 powered, handheld Android-based gaming device, SHIELD. It looks like the PS3/Xbox-style gamepad controller and a Nintendo DS had a baby. And like all infants, it has terrific potential.

Did Valve and Nvidia Just One-Up the Wii U? No! But it is a good idea and shows just how innovative the Wii U really is. I wouldn't be surprised if both MS and Sony have some sort of screen on their respective controllers. If that happens, all the Wii U haters will, all of a sudden have a change of heart and try to embrace this innovation. Either way, it's always good to see new and innovative ways to play games, regardless of what ever console you choose!

Isn't that how it always is?

"Oh the Wii remote sucks, but the Playstation Move is so innovative.."

It will be interesting to see how these projects come along. I do agree that we need more innovation when it comes to how we interact with games. And the Wii U has the potential to offer up some interesting new ways to play. Here's hoping that developers other than Nintendo's first party can utilize the gamepad in creative ways. Ubisoft did a pretty good job with ZombiU, and it should be interesting to see how they progress even further should a sequel surface.

Wiiu is more about Asymetric gameplay than it is off screen remote play...

The wiiu is a thousand times better than the shield. It's the uggliest thing ever.

The fanboyism is strong with this one.

Power wise they just crushed Sony and ms at there own game, the power wars. Their controller setup is retarded though.

The thing runs off a chip that is like 700 xboxes duct taped together. Ms and Sony don't have a chance in hell of beating that tech then nvidia made it so any one could use it. So you know nintendo could actually use this tech to beat ms and Sony tech wise and then offer nintendo games on top of it.

That's what makes this device so interesting. And it's selling at a profit, too!

No one but the mobile space is talking about this. This can be made into a service and steam could be ran off this on the wiiu even. Sure MS and sony could use this also but how much is the stand along box going to cost after al that non future proof power is paid for?

Epic asked for 2.5 teraflops and they gave them 200 teraflops woooooooow. Also LGs oled tv looks better than any thing else at the show!

The remote play is silly if it is not in a console form, yet here is a prefect solution to cloud gaming. Their GRID tech is very sweet. Also the tegra 4 is crazy.... This can go into smart tvs even.
