I think a lot of people are interested in this as a steaming device rather than a portable gaming console. Whether or not they are willing to pay $300 + tax + shipping for it is another thing altogether....

True, but are there any other options for streaming?

Does this run Tegra 4? If so, then I can understand that it *should* be able to play some good looking games natively under Android, once developers make some...

But the streaming part is definitely the most interesting. I don't see how WiFi (and especially Internet) has enough bandwidth to stream PC games. There's no way I could stream a game from my PC to the Shield while outside of my house when my upload speed is only 1Mbps.

Looking forward to your thoughts once you get it though. Canada Computers is selling them so that at least negates shipping cost.
