They should have priced it $250 instead, $350 is more than a PS VITA and it doesn't have any real exclusives. Unless you're an NVIDIA fanboy or just someone really desperate to have a fancy Android gaming handheld, I don't think the general population will buy into NVIDIA's Project SHIELD.

The only thing I would need this for is the ability to stream games from my PC to the shield. It being release in beta and at this price point, they can count me out.

IMO, modern handheld gaming systems should be based on older consoles. I would love to see a handheld Gamecube that could play the real GC discs. I know there is one that exists but it was never mass produced. For consoles like PS2 that use too big of a disc, they could just do a tablet sized device. Make it as light-weight and skinny as possible and I think it'd appeal to a lot of people. The hardware should be effortless to shrink into nothing, and to make more power efficient than modern phones.

You can get a high end Nvidia or AMD gpu for the same amount, if not slightly more!

Steam's going to be involved as well?
I'll give this a miss until Steam tightens up on its security a great deal.
Apparently any learner script kiddie uses Steam as a training spot for stealing credit card numbers.

Nothing wrong with steam's security mate , I've never had a problem with it and i've been a member since 2004. Not sure were you may have read that from but i think its a load of BS.

the only reason i see this decive to be ok is when you are in your bed and want to play a game, in any other place or time is say is not good at all because if you want to play android games, get a smartphone , and if you want pc games, just stay at a PC.
But from all this maybe devs will find a way to stram PC games to Android smartphones.
And the price is a killer (the product is not even fully working, beta feature).

You're talking about a company that takes a mid range card, sells it as their flagship, then sells the flagship card at $1K in the US, $1.1K in Canada and probably 1K in the EU... then sells refreshes of the same chips as the next generation cards while they roll on the ground laughing with all the free time they must have. Rolling in money.

what the? Why would you play on a small screen when there is a large display on the desk?

On the plus side though, this would be great for playing ROMs on Android because using the screen is a chore and cramps your fingers after a while.

That really isn't accurate. Though you may be just joking. The Titan was never designed as its flagship for Nvidia consumer based cards. It was designed for professional compute, to be sold at completely ridiculous prices that the HPC market allows for. You think any major company would design a massive chip with rather poor yields for $500-600 consumer markets and not for $2-5k professional markets?

You can check around the web, including this forum, or even my posts, its pretty well documented Nvidia used this design philosophy.
