We have not heard that much on NVIDIA’s front about Project Shield, the portable console built around Google’s Android operating system. Well it looks like you will be able to pick one up next month for $349. You can actually pre-order yours on May 20th if you want to be one of the first to get your hands on this device! NVIDIA has gone with Shield and dropped the “Project” from the name.
Last month we talking about NVIDIA’s Project SHIELD. It is NVIDIA’s new handheld device that features a 5-inch HD touchscreen and was powered by Android. Playing Android games can be fun, but real hardcore PC gamers want more action. Well NVIDIA knows this and that is why Project SHIELD allows you to stream games from your GeForce GTX 600 Series equipped PC to the device. NVIDIA has released a first in a series of videos showing off the streaming feature in action. The first video shows Project SHIELD streaming Borderlands 2.
NVIDIA today announced Project SHIELD, a gaming portable for open platforms, designed for gamers who yearn to play when, where and how they want. Created with the philosophy that gaming should be open and flexible, Project SHIELD flawlessly plays both Android and PC titles. As a pure Android device, it gives access to any game on Google Play. And as a wireless receiver and controller, it can stream games from a PC powered by NVIDIA GeForce GTX GPUs, accessing titles on its STEAM game library from anywhere in the home.
