The Nvidia Shield TV – Apparently it is almost a Nintendo Switch – So Nintendo how about it?

So the Nintendo Switch comes along, there was all this talk of a custom SoC (System on Chip) with a ton of man hours/research and design that had gone in to it and then it comes to light that the gubbins are not super custom, but merely the Tegra X1 SoC as used in the Shield TV devices..

They both have the acronym NS and the product's name is only six letters long with an "i" being the third letter.

I smell a conspiracy! They must be the same thing.

Yes and I paid 150 pound for the nvidia shied tv and just shows how Nintendo over charged for switch.

The MOST expensive part of a tablet/cell phone/portable device is the SCREEN which the SHIELD does NOT have it and cost 299. So I find what you say to be irrational at best when comparing to a 299 shield.

What are you talking about 299 for shield??? I bought my shield brand new for 150 gbp from amazon so that's about 190 us dollars!.

Too bad the Shield has 1GB less ram than the switch. Also, for it to run switch games, it would need to kick the Android OS out of RAM. So, while streaming is possible (don't ever see Nintendo doing that) not all games would be able to run natively.

(yes, I own both a Shield and a Switch)

Its also doesnt have the exclusives, detachable controllers...

The switch presents itself in a fantastic way because of the detachable joycons and it works great

Which has no quality control, and has been out for years instead of 1.4 months?

""NVidia is copying Nintendo"... 😒

SonyAddict602d ago

Don't you mean the other way around?

There's a reason I put everything in quotes.
