Nvidia announces handheld system - new possible competition for 3DS?

It can stream PC and my complete Steam collection. If I'm able to play my steam games on the go and unteathered, this is a day 1 buy for me right here. Playing games like Dustforce (which should be on the 3DS and other systems anyway) would be all kinds of awesome. I don't think it would really affect the handheld market for the 3DS though, as This Nvidia system seems targeted at possible PC owners. Who is gonna want a system that only plays games that you could already play on an Android phone.

I like it. If it comes out, I intend to get one.

It can stream my games from the PC like the Wii U can do with its tablet controller.

Day 1 buy right there.

Only if you have an NIVIDIA GTX 650 or higher.

I have SLI GTX 680's.

edit: And a GTX660 is only $200. You can often get it for less. It will nearly max out any and video game on the market except the most graphically demanding possible.

I've got myself a single GTX570 Superclocked, so I'll probably hold off on this handheld until I find it necessary to upgrade my PC.

Ouch... Yeah, that's a bummer. Not worth the upgrade from 570 to the 600 series at all.

Would be so weak if they require you to have an Nvidia Card. I'm sitting on an AMD Radeon HD 6870.

Correct terminology is 'Could NOT care less'. Learn English!

More like competition for Ouya. It's interesting, but I don't see it being huge.

Worst design since the N-Gage.

It's actually kind of interesting, sort of like a PC version of Wii U. The only thing I would see as an issue is that any PC game that's heavily mouse-reliant would be hard to play here, and 100% of the PC games I personally play are.
