PCAdvisor: Nvidia's Shield is complementary to gaming consoles for now, but the company hopes that wide adoption of Android gaming ultimately could make the US$349 handheld an alternative to Xbox and PlayStation
And I hope to win the lotto. While this thing looks pretty cool, it doesn't seem like the next big contender.
Mother of bubbles
Mods are gods to us laymen.
Anyone else laugh at the headline?
correction: Nvidia hopes Xbox, PS4 eventually overtakes Shield. are they talking about the avengers?
I literally lol'd when I saw it.
is no more than just a heavy android device when you bring it outside! it can only stream pc games at home when it's connected to the same network your pc is on. outside, you'll be limited to just android stuff. what good will THAT do?
*takes off glasses* dear god...
Are they serious? This is hilarious! Lol Anyone notice the buttons on the Nvidia Shield are exactly the same as the Xbox One controller?
Ya same buttons as the Xbox and same Analog placement as Sony controllers. Kind of a hybrid controller.
Who copied who with those buttons I wonder. I remember Microsoft talking about how their buttons went thru a 2 or 3 step process to make them look like they do.
this is what the shield looks exactly like:
yup looks like Microsoft and SONY have had a date on valentines Day
Of course they do. Its their product. Not to mention that being rejected for the next Gen leads to sour grapes.
Such a waste of money producing these...
go home nvidia,you are drunk.
What's with all this 'go home you are drunk' crap I keep seeing?
That is the internet--a lack of individual creativity leads to inane repetitive blither.
go home TechnicianTed, you are drunk.
@ElitaStorm I am at home :S
Ooooooooh you little sheep-like badman. Crack on with copying the other kids. @thecurseddevil I just wanted to know where it came from because I'd seen it a lot. You're the one getting precious about it. 'whats pathetic is the fact that you obsess about writing original phrases on internet. ' Lol, I only asked a question, haha.
alright i wasnt original.hardly anyone is. whats pathetic is the fact that you obsess about writing original phrases on internet.
easy boys, its just a joke
>>I just wanted to know where it came from because I'd seen it a lot why would you assume that i know where it came from?i had read it somewhere and hence used it.it doesn't mean that i would know where the phrase was originated. >>Lol, I only asked a question, haha. you had also said " Ooooooooh you little sheep-like badman. Crack on with copying the other kids. " it kinda does imply that reuse of a popular phrase irritates you and hence you in fact care about posting original stuff on internet.(hint:no one on the internet gives a shit how original your post is) and it is pathetic that you consider posting a original comment on internet an achievement.
When I called you a badman I was replying to this- 'i dont give a fuck about posting stuff which will amuse you. '
you did not watched the XBO reveal?? Xbox, go home.
i was referring to the "Crack on with copying the other kids."
@Heavenly King I'll be honest, I skipped through most of it as it was the worst unveiling I'd ever seen. It was TV,TV,TV,tv,tv,tv.....boring. So yeah, must have missed that part. So that's where the 'Go home' crap came from. Cheers.
i think they are still drinking!!!
Yea, never going to happen. But its nice to set lofty goals.
Shouldnt Nvidia be concentrating on the 3DS? you know, another handheld device
LOLOLOLOLOL...they can't be serious...... can they???!!!??
Nvidia loves itself too much..
Nvidia should stick with what they do best: gpu's and mobile cpu's. They are top notch in those areas. I just don't see this product being very successful. But in 1-2 years if I seen that thing clearanced for under $99, I'd be all over it.
I would be shocked if it sells one million units :/
If they sell more than 100,000 shields , I will sell my PSV for 5 bucks .
With all respect to Nvidia Company " Shield " Looks like A really Stupid Idea to go head to head with next gen. Consoles , 1) weakness is the cost ! 350 dollars , 2) it's NOT the good ( Time ) to go head to Head with Next Generation Systems . 3) " Shields " Handheld is Fantastic Idea BUT with WEAK Graphic technology " Tegra " chip , not mentioning this technology will be available inside most of " Mobile phones " NEXT YEAR , and it's NOT that big different in term of graphical Power of PSV . I think if they lunched " shields " 2 years ago might been a good idea ,Nvidia is one of the TOP Graphics Cards GAINTs in the world " WHY the hell not installing A stronger chip than Tegra !? I will buy shields ONLY if the graphics look like xbox 360 or PS3 .... This is my opinion .
While true it may not be as powerful as the next generation consoles ; however, free online gaming, discounts for games, free games, and all the bells and whistles of online gaming communication without paying a subscription. Well that would put the Nvidia shield as a cheaper pro consumer video game console. Being a powerful system doesn't guarantee success. At the moment it's advantage is the ability to play games both at home and on the go without needing to buy a secondary mobile device.
Interesting reply , but remember bro , it's handheld system plus there Many disadvantages for " shield " For me , I am a hardcore gamer for 24 years , for me the graphics is Very important aspect . Why buying " shield " now ? In mid of next year 2014 the mobile phones will be able to Handel powerful graphics smilier to PS3 and Xbox 360 and that's confirmed .
I think phil Harrison works for Nvidia as well. He's a tripple agent.
HAHAHAHAHAHHAAHAHAHAHAHA... errr wait they are serious?
Does it require an online connection every 24 hours?
It works on internet connections lol , its basically a streaming console from your PC games and offline are only the Iphone games. Someone correct me if i'm wrong
Ok raises hand. You are wrong sir because the online streaming is a optional feature to use. It's so you can have improved graphics by using your pc hardware and basically displaying on your shield screen. Otherwise your free to download any game from the android or nividia market and play offline. *I think Vip3r was doing a stealth troll at the xbox one 24 hour requirement that no1 really even got.
I heard its 350$.. yeah right keep dreaming nvidia
I must laugh my ass off, you want to become better than Sony in gamingindustry? Keep dreaming and sell your very useful graphic Cards at the Price of irony...
$350 is too high for a handheld. But as a comparison the ps vita is $250 for weaker hardware and cannot stream (but obviously a much better game lineup).
