IBTimes UK - Nvidia's has said that its upcoming handheld Project Shield console will have a game library "tens of thousands deep" combining PC and Android titles and will be able to run Crysis.
No. 5 FPS
@coolmast3r. Lol funny
It crashes even if you just try to view crysis screenshots on it!
It streams it from a pc so it doesn't matter what game it is, all it's doing it playing back a video, essentially. So it can actually "run" crysis (or any game) at 60fps or more. Does your PC take more power to watch a youtube video of crysis than a video of cats?
Project Shield 'Can Stream Crysis' fixed.
I agree with Unztayble. Streaming is different to running. Also the use of quotation marks makes it seem Nvidia said this. When in fact the interviewer said "can it play Crysis?' Nvidia answered "yes it does," which is true but they never said it could run it. Please use quotations properly.
Well spotted - they've gotten around that by using the single quotation marks, classic. On topic, yes, all the Shield does is process video streamed from your PC. If your PC can run Crysis, there's no reason why the Shield shouldn't. (at least as I understand it)
I believe it runs off Nvidias servers not your own computer.
@Skate-AK: It's definitely your own computer, they've said that you'll need a recent NVIDIA GTX card to run it.
"streaming" crysis is alot different than "running" crysis
It just looks so ugly (Project Shield). I wouldn't be seen carrying it around.
Using that logic, my iPad can run Crysis (with the use of the Splashtop remote app), although controls would be troublesome. I wish people would stop using these headlines on N4G.
I would like to know what compelled this company to release this abomination.
