But can it stream Crysis? Nvidia's new cloud gaming server explained

ARS - he most interesting news to come out of Nvidia's two-hour-plus press conference Sunday night was doubtlessly the Tegra 4 mobile processor, followed closely by its intriguing Project Shield tablet-turned-handheld game console. However, company CEO Jen-Hsun Huang also revealed a small morsel of news about the cloud gaming initiative that Nvidia talked up back in May: the Nvidia Grid, the company's own server designed specifically to serve as the back-end for cloud gaming services. (NVIDIA, PC)

I would prefer if they gave me the software to stream from my own PC to other devices lag free.
(lag free-er than current solutions that is)

didn't you see Nvidia's Shield?
just saying, you can play games from your PC on that thing.

they won't prob. add that to the Grid software later in the Shield life time (since its a key selling point)

but, they did say that you can use grid on any device.
so maybe in 3-4 years when shield is gone. but you never know ^^

yea, but already having other devices, $hield doesn't seem worth it.
It's a cool device though.

PD: random though, if I'm going to shell money on a new gaming toy for my PC I'd prefer to buy an Oculus Rift... IMHO immersion>portability

Depends what you mean by stream, For example, if you have a good wireless mouse and keyboard(or controller), and a wireless HDMI Adapter, you could just leave your PC in your bedroom or whatever and just plug the Wireless HDMI dongle into any screen you want to use. Thats a lag free solution.

Then there's the nvidia shield. which is the other solution, which you said you don't really like.

Honestly, if you just want to play in another room, A wareless HDMI adapter could probably be found for $100, and a wireless 360 controller adapter is like $10.

Contrary to believe, theres a lot to streaming. You have to continuously render the video/game, Compress is to be managable by your bandwidth, send it, uncompress it and play it. The reason it hasnt really happened on PC till now is mostly because Thats a lot to do without lag, and Keplar just came out with a Fancy schmancy feature that makes it possible.
