Nvidia Shield is a 4K Android TV Gaming Console for $199
With so many companies venturing into business territories that they have never really competed in before, you would expect a new product launch almost every day now.
However, there is one thing that I have been waiting for since a while; Nvidia’s own console. The reason why I say that is because they have been at the helm of graphic card making with is the backbone of good gaming on PCs, it only makes sense that they take the leap and start making the whole thing.
Guess what, they did. Nvidia Shield is their very own Android based 4K gamin console.
NVIDIA SHIELD brings next generation gaming and entertainment to the living room. Watch movies and videos in stunning 4K, play amazing Android games and stream the best PC games from the cloud.
Unleash the power of NVIDIA gaming supercomputers in the cloud, coupled with the performance and efficiency of the revolutionary new NVIDIA Tegra X1 processor.
Nvidia Shield uses Nvidia Grid for cloud gaming which “is powered by the worlds most advanced gaming supercomputer in the cloud, NVIDIA GRID is a game streaming service that delivers PC quality gaming to the living room.”
The next thing that they are boasting off are the entertainment apps that are going to stream your favorite TV shows and movies with an impressive 4K result. They are saying that services like Hulu Plus, YouTube, and Google Play are going to be on board.
We have all known about the kind of games we get on the Xbox or the PlayStation but those are not Android based home consoles. This one is going to change that and the manufacturers are claiming that their home console “enables a new class of Android games – with immersive gameplay, intense multiplayer action and stunning graphics.”
Just so that you know you will not be sitting idle waiting for a developer to make a game for the console, they have shared a list of titles that are going to be available for playing. There is Batman Arkham Origins, Saints Row IV, Borderlands 2, Ultra Street Fighter IV, The Witcher 2 and literally tons of other games.
Nvidia Shield has been priced at $199 which sounds reasonable for an Android console – don’t you think?
