    But...Why?

    That video shows some pretend gamer sitting not 5 meters from his pc.
    Its not like the psps or vita and PS3 where it makes sense if the family are using the TV, but a pc to handheld and such a tiny screen......I dont get humans anymore.


    Hilarious.


    Hey nvidia, stick to gpus yeah.

    And its not like someone can do other stuff while your gaming on that thing, as the game gets fully loaded up on the pc, just sit the hell at your desk or by a friggin xbox360 controller.

    Who's idea was this and why do we have to share our oxygen with them.

    Does the game you play also needs to go fullscreen on your PC?. If not a child can play its favorite games on the couch while mom or dad can browse the interwebs ...

    When i was younger i really liked to play in bed with my gameboy/sega handheld. This on the other hand would have been a dream come true...

    So i get where Nvidia is going but now for me its pointless.

    Lol, well that didnt take long.

    As for this thing, if nvidia want it to be successful in anyway then they need to add the option of just using the pc as a pure grunt and not have the game go full screen on both devices.

    At work so can’t watch the video, so is someone using a PC to run the game then encode and stream it to Project Shield?
    If that is the case then I can see why people would find that pointless as I don’t imagine there would be much in the way of resources left, even on a fast PC.

    I have my PC hooked up to the living room TV so I suppose i could stream a game to it while the other half watches her soaps, not that I ever would as I’m not a fan of anything other than huge screens.

    Think they were just doing this because they can, I really don’t think there is a much of a market for it.

    Yeah the video show a bloke sitting on the couch while using the handheld thing to play, and in the background the game is also full screen. Thats alot of power (gtx680) to be wasting just to play on such a tiny screen.

    Though if one could use a local wi-fi hotspot to startup the pc then stream the same way the ps3 and psp/vita do, then maybe, but the question of why is still there - Who the the hell has that much free time to play a full blown pc title when they're out and about - Come on team, lets got to Starbucks order a coffee and a muffin sit down and play some S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Team says, why? i have a smartphone for games on the go.

    I love gaming, but i also bitch about it more than anything else.

    I don't get the vid...was he being paid to promote NFS:MW as well?
    Seems like almost half of the video was him talking about the game itself and not about SHIELD itself. =/

    I kinda get what Nvidia is targeting, but if I wanted to play a game on my PC, I would go to my PC and play it?

    I reckon they are trying to bring the younger generation back to PC gaming... good on them for trying, but I dont think it will be successful.

    Although it does also have android jelly bean on it so it does double up as a tablet with a controller.

    I just like new tech and people trying new Ideas its how we evolve.

    Agreed, but new ideas need to be logical and not just be something that looks like a good idea disguised as something useful, which imo is exactly what this is. I cannot understand the logic behind this thing at all.

    If it could be used to bounce a connection to a seperate wi-fi enabled tv and the person on the actual pc could go about their business, then yeah awesome. Though as it stands this is just a toy.
