PS:Vita Vs Tablets Vs Nvidia Shield

#21xspikePosted 1/7/2013 1:42:35 AM
The Shield might only get android games and stream PC games - if you've got the right GPU. It looks interesting but it probably won't get much dedicated support. But least its powerful enough to play all new and upcoming android games, which is getting more advanced all the time.

So the system could be very good to have even if the system doesn't sell all that well, just depending on what the near future holds for cellphone games.

It isn't a traditional handheld, heck it isn't even out of home portable. It is a peripheral.


it is a traditional handheld though.

Explain to me how it isn't?


Is a Ferrari a traditional everyman car? No. This is a premium product. It also can be played on a 4K tv. Tell me that every gamer, nay every PC gamer wanting big screen mode can afford a 4K tv right now.

This wasn't E3 with everyone glued to their console watching, this was at CES.

I don't expect much from it. I'm guessing it'll take at minimum at year to release from now, with a price of at least $300. Not only that you need a 650 graphics card which is decently pricey already. And the act of having to upgrade your computer or buying a new one is a hassle not many people will go through.

By the time it launch's, Vita will have a price drop. PS4 may come out, in which I expect gaikai to take its course and provide a competitive solution to the "stream steam games" problem sony may face.

Thats the way I see it.


You dont need a computer to use it at all. Its a android based portable gaming device with a Tegra 4 that's going to compete with the PS Vita and 3DS.


Yep, running for the hills are Sony and Nintendo from that android device. Nvidia Shield won't even be a blip on the radar, but I'm sure a few select people who can afford one or want one will enjoy it. Tablets already play android games so it isn't exactly a new concept, is it?

It's a touchscreen stuck to a 360 controller that mostly just plays smartphone games and is only notable for streaming games from your PC... as long as you have a compatible NVIDIA graphics card.


it plays games portable though, android based ones. So how is that not a handheld gaming console?

Yeah it's actually that simple. It's likely to have a market of it's own but overlapping on phablet/dedicated tactile handhelds on certain cases.

Even if this "dies", as a Pure Android device, it's still gonna do fine as a media consumption device: *emphasis on Android Apps, faster browser*.

The same way a smartphone isn't, even if you stick a controller peripheral onto it.

The Xbox was unveiled at CES though.

does that mean Xbox isn't a video game console?
