A new challenger has arrived! Please, welcome SHIELD!
Look at this sexy mo-fo!
The Titan Trifecta of gaming consoles (Nintendo, PlayStation, and Xbox) will soon have to face NVIDIA in battle. The visual computing company will release the first considered world’s Android TV console: SHIELD. No release date has been confirmed yet in the U.S. However, I am awaiting anxiously to see how this console will prove itself in the gaming world market. SHIELD will unleash the power of “supercomputer” technology in a cloud system (i.e., the GRID) letting the consumers not only stream the PC games, but also play Android games and watch high quality videos. And with a 3GB memory I say that’s more than doable. NVIDIA’s goals with SHIELD include to infuse PC quality graphics to games available for the system. As if that is not impressive enough, SHIELD will hold the capability of diverse gameplay like supporting multiplayer options.
Look at that controller how sexy and sleek it is! -Drools.-
You’re probably asking yourself, “What games could possibly make me want to even consider buying this thing?” Thankfully, I am here to answer that question! Available on Google Play you will have access to Crysis 3, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Resident Evil 5, and Doom 3. IF that is not good enough, the GRID will give graciously let you play Batman: Arkham Origins, Boderlands 2, and Ultra Street Fighter IV just to name a few. And all this in a CLOUD?! A CLOUD! Think about this for a second… What is also a promising factor, which I have mentioned before in some of my entries, is that NVIDIA has listened to the gaming world inhabitants. SHIELD was developed with feedback provided by gamers from all over for specifics like graphics, processing power, accessibility, and comfort when playing with controllers. Hence, the slogan “Made To Game.”
