Nvidia announces Project SHIELD

Recommended Posts

Nvidia has made a portable Android-powered console called Project Shield.

The Android-based system runs games from Android's Google Play store and also allows users to stream games installed on their home PC for play on the Shield's screen. Games demonstrated during Nvidia's press conference included Hawken and the PC versions of Need for Speed: Most Wanted and Assassin's Creed III.

Because Steam now has its Big Picture mode, the Shield can be used to navigate the store without having to move back to your PC.

Neat, but I see it being another N-Gauge. Maybe a successful partnership with steam will help it out, I'm just wondering how fast PC games will pass it up in specs. If its using PC games and not games exclusively designed for it, it may present a problem real fast when the hardware can no longer keep up with the software. I like the design, hopefully it will be decently priced...

It seems like it will be usable, but I don't really see the point of it compared to hooking up a laptop or a dedicated computer to a tv with an hdmi cable and just playing all the steam games that way. And for android only games and apps, I can hook up my photon to my tv with a mini-hdmi cable and play everything mirrored onto the tv.

Honestly I think this is probably the most retarded thing I've seen in years (console wise). Quite honestly I don't see the point, I have my Droid Bionic for Android based games and apps and my laptop for Steam so I really don't see the point to this. Plus I'm sure this thing will be released at a ridiculous asking price.

      To fix low volume in Nvidia Shadowplay recordings, open the game you are going to record, minimize it, right click your audio icon, open volume mixer, scroll to the right until you see NVIDIA Capture Server and the game. Set both to 100 percent and turn your volume up to 100%. Control the volume of your speakers or headphones with an in-line volume control. The PC must have volume set at 100% to record at full volume.

      The new PlayStation 4 firmware update will include external HHD support for game installation. Finally. I honestly didn't realize the original PS4s even had USB 3. They are also finally adding custom wallpapers via screenshots. About damn time. The wallpapers in the online store are complete garbage. I'd still prefer to use my own .jpg files like on the PS3, but modders used that feature as a way to hack the system which is why we never got the functionality in PS4. Using a screenshot is completely fine with me.

      Nvidia is launching an online game streaming service called GeForce NOW.
      I'm going to quote myself here from another topic:
      With Playstation having it's own streaming service and now Nvidia making it's own service, having to own physical consoles and PCs specifically for gaming might come to an end within our lifetimes.
      The downside to the Nvidia service is the cost. I've been seeing the numbers "$25 per 20 hours of gaming" floating around alot. If so, thats a hell of an expense for now.

      Am I the only one suffering from steam sale fatigue? Maybe its just me but ever since they changed the store to the design it is now nothing in the store appeals to me anymore. Its probably because of the massive influx of every game from every independent developer. Theres so many games on there that I never look at what new games came out anymore because in any given week 40+ new games were released and 250+ games are listed in their weekly sales. I stopped looking and only pay attention to humble bundle sales now. Even with the steam sale going on now I don't see any huge sale thats leaping out at me to take my money anymore. Sure I still have a backlog of games but there seems to be less and less new AAA or indie games that I'm interested in for PC. Unless its a game I want for console I hardly look at the steam store anymore even though I use steam on a daily basis.
