Nvidia has just unveiled a new handheld gaming system called Project Shield. Project Shield is powered by the Tegra 4 processor and can play console-quality games while still providing a mobile experience. The processor is capable of pushing 4K resolution video over HDMI to external displays. It includes advanced sound processing that Nvidia says rivals Beats Audio-equipped laptops, and a 33Wh battery that provides five to ten hours of play time or 24 hours of HD video playback. It features a 5-inch, 720p Retinal multitouch display with 294ppi pixel density, and has a slot for micro-SD card expansion. The Shield runs Android — pure Android without a skin, as Nvidia insists — and includes Google's apps for Gmail and the Play Store.

In addition to supporting all of the games available to Android devices and the games in the Tegra Zone, the Shield also has the ability to stream games from a home Windows PC equipped with a GeForce GTX 650 (or higher) graphics card to the handheld device over Wi-Fi, letting users access their library of PC games, including games in the Steam library, while on the go. It access the games on the home PC and run them virtually on the Shield. In the future, Nvidia says that it will add support to stream content from the Shield to a television wirelessly, so you can watch video and play games on your TV display without being tethered by wires. Of course, with support for the standard Android platform, the Shield also has access to the hundreds of thousands of apps that are available in the Google Play Store.

Seems like an impressive piece of tech but I haven't found games on Google Play to make it worth it. My phone just has Angry Birds basically. The Steam integration on the otherhand is great. I may keep an eye on this for awhile.

Currently Playing: Splatoon, Need for Speed Rivals

The thumbsticks look like they're in a awkward position for potential hand crampage

As if anyone needed more reasons not to buy a PS Vita.

...in my pants.

This will follow the VITA into the darkest corner of JB HiFi... Just another product taking up valuable shelf space feeling very unloved

I will only buy this if/once it can play Minecraft and it costs <$250. Otherwise it's a fat old pass for me.

Still more comfortable than PSP1000.
