Nvidia reveals Android-powered handheld device called Shield

Postby The_Hun1 » 07 Jan 2013, 08:38

feel the tumbleweed blowing right across the stage just there.

Another new console/device, what is the point of this one, also the analog sticks are in the wrong place, should have one where the dpad is.

again what is the fecking point of this, when you have psp, psp vita, ds, 3ds, iphone, ipad and any other android device on market and 2 next gen consoles about to be annouced plus all the old gen consoles still going strong like wii, wii u, ps3 and 360. If you are that into games, heck if none of them take your fancy you always have the best left, the pc.
Freedom is more than idea, it's a way of life and if you don't agree then move to a country that dosn't have it!!!!

Let's be optimistic and say that 250,000 of these get sold. That's at least 250,000 more tegra 4 handsets in peoples hands, spurring more tegra 4 development and all the benefits to Nvidia that go with it. Quite clever really.

Controle stick is in the wrong place only if you cannot use both systems and are devoted to xbox to me who uses the Playstation set up the stick is just right but lets be honest would you play this in public? I know I would not as it's fuggly as hell.

WTF!!! Where the hell did this come from! Looks like Nvidia bought a job lot of the original large Xbox controllers and stuck a screen on the top! Design execution ... terrible! Be interested to see how this plays out. The audience were obviously too blown away to react???? lol

You're assuming that Nvidia need this console to succeed on the same terms as Vita or 3DS. They don't.

Creating 10s if not 100s of thousands of tegra 4 game buying consumers benefits them massively.

Simple question, if 250,000 - 500,000 of this console are sold, would you consider that success?

C'mon guys, be honest here.
If that had been produced by any of the main console makers with their back catalogue of games available we would all be going oooh and thinking it might have potential.
If it had been made by microsoft the thread would be full of fanatics bigging up the adhoc halo multiplayer in the alcopop bar.

Rather self serving to quote myself but *boing*..

Besides which, simply root and get a stable Linux kernel on there.
