NVIDIA Lowers the Price and Adds More Features to SHIELD

Back when NVIDIA announced its SHIELD portable gaming device they thought they were going to blow the socks off the industry. Well that really has not happened and besides giving the unit away to bloggers and press at events they really have had a hard time pushing the device. At the GPU Technology conference the company announced new updates and features to the device.

The SHIELD will also be getting updated to Android KitKat. Another big update is the ability to stream games remotely over the internet via WiFi or LTE. NVIDIA says that the quality will be comparable to streaming the games via its Grid cloud gaming service.
