NVIDIA SHIELD Hands-On Preview Comment Thread
 
SHIELD is a grand experiment to integrate various elements of NVIDIA's product stack into a single cohesive device that transcends previous handheld gaming devices. It does this by integrating ecosystems from Android, the PC and online HD streaming in new and interesting ways.

Interesting read, I hope you get to test the streaming pretty soon, I still think this world be great on my projector.

I'll admit, I was a doubter. After using it, I'd consider buying one. If they get the PC streaming down, I'll be using it ALL the time.

I already have two computers hooked up to the HDTV. What I want to know is how useful it would be on a road trip. :)

Can it do GPS?

SKYMTL June 26, 2013 12:59 PM

Yes, it has integrated GPS and full access to Google Maps or any other third party mapping software.

Sold! lol!

I'm extremely excited to see release reviews of this product. I don't really care about the Android side of it. But the ability to stream my Steam games and play while I'm lounging around in bed or whatever... that's an awesome concept.

On a side note... the camera man for that video was giving me a headache. Someone needs to teach him to steady the cam and stop that constant panning around. :whistle:

There were issues with the rig. Going forward, they have been fixed. You'll see the result in our tour of the NVIDIA HQ coming soon.

Hmm, I was just thinking, this would be hell for FPS's on the road. All jittery and stuff. Now, if you could detach the monitor....

How would detaching the screen help with jitters on the road? IMO, you can balance it better with the hand-held portion.
