And the PC gamer with a naggy wife. Just leave the PC on when you go to bed, turn away from her, whip out the Shield, and play!


THIS...and also for the couch...

It's a pricey solution to a problem no one actually has.


I want a comfortable, ergonomic handheld that can emulate games ranging from Atari to Dreamcast, as well as handhelds up to and including PSP, on a high quality display, with a clamshell design, high quality buttons, and general purpose software and original titles that are on the bleeding edge of handheld technology.
What are my options?

Also, because why not: It should also remotely play games from my PC.


The clamshell part is absolutely worthless because of the size of the device.

A Nexus 7 and a bluetooth controller beats this almost every way.


How is it worthless? It protects the screen when not in use.
Bluetooth controller isn't as compact and unified. Plus, Shield is actively cooled AND uses the fastest mobile processor on the market.
Also, battery life.
Also, PC streaming.


It also has a smaller screen, worse resolution, forces you to have the screen where you have the controller, it only streams PC in an area where you could actually be using your PC instead of streaming, and it is most certainly not the fastest mobile processor on the market, the Snapdragon 800 is. Do you work for Nvidia?


Is Snapdragon 800 on the market right now?
Also, Tegra 4 actually has better CPU-side performance. Snapdragon 800 has better GPU performance.
I don't want a massive, awkward screen, 720p is great for a 5" display, I can't play on my PC from my kitchen, bed, or bathroom, nor can I play it outside of my apartment. Do you work for AMD?

I kind of want to get one and use it as an emulation machine


This is truly not a troll post although my previous ones were.

Games that were made for big screen work in small?? Never tried this before. I'm thinking the text going to be too small.

/non troll post (future ones no guarantee lol)


Depends on the kind of person you are. Some people love teh big screen. Personally, I give all of 0 ****s about hot big a screen is. Most of my early gaming was done on a GameBoy Pocket, and I've had every major Nintendo handheld since, barring 3DS. Never had a problem with a screen being "too small".

You can play your PC in glorious, laggy 720p in case you're too lazy to actually sit down at your desk. Sounds useful.

Don't forget with superior controller setup. Ditch that mouse and keyboard and join us brother!

To anybody calling it laggy - have you actually used it to know that it's laggy? Or any similar solution such as Splashtop? Because I've been able to stream PC games lag-free onto my phone and tablet through Splashtop.

This is an interesting article. Makes me think nvidia aren't as noobish as they seem.

LMAO

720p is great for a 5" display? Wonder why every popular smartphone on the market has better resolution than that? Why would you want to play PC from your kitchen, bed, or bathroom? Especially that last one.

What on earth does AMD have to do with this at all? Absolutely nothing. You threw that in for no reason because you either A) actually work for Nvidia or B) are in super fanboy defense mode.

You're talking about a gaming device and you bring up that the processor in your CPU is worse as a plus? It's only job is to play games. That's the most important part. The Snapdragon 800 is basically crushing it. The CPU difference is almost nothing and in different benchmarks from the one below it actually wins.

Seriously, I have no idea where the AMD thing even came from. Is that just your go to defense or something, last time I checked they don't make a handheld gaming device and Qualcomm currently owns and makes Snapdragon CPUs...

Edit: I give you that Snapdragon 800 isn't on the market yet, but it will be very, very soon and proves that the Nvidia Shield is not worth $300.
