I would probably be interested in it but I'm not buying a video card just to get it

A gaming laptop is still better for portability IMO

Gaming Laptops are so underrated...smh

Completely different type of device that shouldn't even really be compared.

Can you connect it to a tv and play splitscreen with controllers on it?

I have gaming laptop and am still getting one

You can connect to a TV/Projector via HDMI from the Shield. On Android games or emulators, you could easily just use Bluetooth or an USB OTG cable to connect as many controllers as you need. Heck, you don't even have to use the Shield controller if you don't want to; just pair something else with the device.

For PC Streaming, I assume splitscreen would work fine. Like before, the extra needed controllers could be plugged into the Shield via either Bluetooth or USB OTG. If it would work in your layout/situation, you could even just connect the controllers directly to the PC itself. All the Shield is doing is receiving an audio/video stream specially buffered before the standard HDMI output protocol is buffered on your GPU and sent out, then the only data sent back to the PC is the controller input data. This is probably part of why latency is non-existant, those milliseconds lost via network travel are made up for by sending the data before it actually even buffers the physical HDMI output. It's actually pretty simple, in theory. Applicably speaking, if it works on your computer it will function the same on the Shield.

For electrical emulation. You're not going to see electrical emulation of a Playstation any time soon, on anything.


Hopefully emulation will get easier as modern games are less framerate sensitive, they actually calculate their frame speed and adjust game speed to match, just like a PC game.


That won't make anything easier.
Electrical emulation involves calculating an electrical current running through a system. So, every single cycle takes thousands of cycles to accurately reproduce.

What will make emulation easier is that no one compiles directly to hardware anymore. So, it's all decoding high level instructions.


Yes but a x360 and ps3 game shouldn't care what framerate it runs at anymore. So duplicate the API's and you should be done.

It's not like previous consoles, where things down to bandwidth speeds had to be emulated.

There should be no reason why a PS3 game couldn't run anywhere between 10fps (like the console lol) to 300 fps.


Actually, lots of times emulators run better than the original hardware, and most console hardware can be overclocked to improve performance. However, console games are still programmed with framerate limitations.
Doesn't really make emulation any easier.

Want that Shield!
Ball and Cup on ps mobile has framerate issues. -stargazer64
