NVIDIA Project Shield Is Just Another Vague Gaming Console

Mobile & Apps: "Since the dawn of gaming, many companies tend to entered the market with obscure products on a regular basis. It's a regular thing, it's expected. However, when these products come from well known companies with a history in gaming, then right there we have a problem." (Android, Mobile, Next-Gen, NVIDIA)

This is the stupidest thing I've ever heard. 3D games on current phones/tables especially the iPad 4 have VASTLY superior image quality, super-HD resolutions and superior textures to the PS3 and the 360. This will steamroll current consoles in image quality on a 1080p TV. Consoles run at 800x600 or some joke of a resolution with shitty textures, low poly models and horrendous jaggies.

Not to mention it has a full fledged controller, a 2nd display and does EVERYTHING better than a console without stupid restrictions on video formats, streaming, data transfer etc.

The biggest joke is this thing will have superior resolution, texture quality and framerates than the PS4 and 720.

is not about the resolution on poor quality or cheap graphics games..
is about everything else and can only be found on a legit console or good enough PC..

Console gamers.. Dont care about graphics (specially when PC is thrown in for comparison even if its a low end one lol).

For console gamers its all about comparing 6 year old tech PS3 vs Xbox 360 anything beyond that is not relevant lol.

It's because we play games not graphics. Graphics are welcome but gameplay and experience are important also. We're loyal to our platforms and shouldn't be such fanboys...

iPads may have superior resolution, but the A.I, physics, controls & gameplay are shite. Comparing a glorified flash game to something like Uncharted is madness.

It has come to my attention that you are a poor wretched thing.

I'll give you resolution and framerates cuz it's mostly true about the ipad 4.. but FFS; 3D geometry (character models and details) look like ASS even on the almighty iPad 4.

Not to mention just having simple effects, mostly blob shadows (except Dead Trigger 2, it has real time shadows) and occluded areas! Have fun with rat maze areas.

I think we'll see some real comparable overall visual impact before the 720 and PS4 life cycle ends the way the mobile industry is progressing at a fast rate... but that's 5-6 years from now.

I concur. Models look atrocious more often than not.

console gamer: we don't care for graphics but gameplay

console gamer 2: god of war has better graphics than halo but gears of war has better graphics than uncharted.

console gamers say they don't care for graphics but why are they always comparing games and talking about FPS.

I'm a console gamer and i care! those who say they don't are kidding themselves. But it certainly wouldn't stop me from playing classics from the PSone/Ps2/gameboy.

its something new, its an interesting idea that may be better implemented in the future.

For me its more about the Tegra 4. The next gen of tablets and smart phones are going to be graphical powerhouses.
