Nvidia Hitches Ride to Future on Android Games After PS4

Nvidia Chief Executive Officer Jen-Hsun Huang is betting on the device to accelerate a push into markets outside of the PC graphics-chip market, which provided 82 percent of the company’s revenue in the latest quarter. Shield, along with other devices such as the WikiPad and Ouya, is part of a growing array of gaming hardware that’s challenging more established console systems, such as Microsoft Corp. (MSFT)’s Xbox and Sony Corp. (6758)’s PlayStation, both of which will be updated this year. (Mobile, NVIDIA)

Okay, glad I don't use Nvidia anymore in that case. Mobile(phone not dedicated handheld)/casual games are what is really ruining the gaming industry.

Nothing wrong with Nvidia branching out. Beside Nvidia been riding with Android since Tegra 2 SoC debut back in 2010.

Mobile/casual games isn't what's really ruining the gaming industry. The causes for the industry being ruin can't be pinpointed to one thing. The industry is being ruin for multiple things.

For example greedy publishers who want to nickle and dime their customers by making them pay for content that should already be in the game. Developers half-assing their games by releasing a game filled with bugs, glitches or etc. Heck we could spend all day naming things that ruining the gaming industry.

For example: Capcom is all about making you pay for DLC and GearBox released Aliens: Colonial Marines while it was still unpolished and didn't have the same look as the demon which was better than the actual game. And there's also activision and treyarch milking the hell out of CoD and recycling material from previous games and using it in their newer ones.

Mobile gaming is expanding the gaming industry to people who wouldn't have bought a dedicated console and then it makes them think about owning a console.

Saying mobile gaming is ruining the games industry is like saying Disney has ruined the film industry by making casual films.

So they've been downplaying the PS4 and calling it dated and all only to go make a pathetic controller that plays Angry Birds! Amazing, just AMAZING.

Hah! very true.

That's the best decision Nvidia has made in a long while. Mobile is where the hardcore audience is at. I can't wait for the next temple run game to have a loading screen that says "Nvidia- The Way It's Meant To Be Played". My body is ready!!!1!!1!1!!one!!

Nvidia don't care about the Hardcore gaming industry, they care about making money. Like all the hardware companies

Shield is a gonna fail, I actually think its interesting, but I can't see anyone paying $350 for it. And with them out of the console sector next gen its pretty clear they will continue to make all their money off of graphics chips for the foreseeable future.
