"about the size of an Xbox 360 controller"? It looks like a 3rd party Xbox 360 controller and they point out the size lol

i have just 1 question, does the screen flip all the way out? it looks as though its only half open.



Impressive to say the least. What about price and games, not to mention release date?



It might end up like the Neogeo pocket



Wow, cant wait to play Angry Birds on this.

Indeed. Finally some hardcore controls for that game!



So. Let me see if I've get this right.

This is basically another Android gaming device that you can connect to a TV with the HDMI port but with the adition that you can also connect it to a PC with an Nvidia GTX card (so bye, bye AMD users) and when you do that, you can play the PC games that you usually play on you PC monitor/TV on its 5" screen or the TV...

Am I missing something?

And, I know it's in beta, but if the video linked by Godchild1020 is an indication of the "no lag" experience, then I'm ver, very skeptical

Look at the close up with the pics showing in the pad and the TV, at 00:40.



Please excuse my bad English.

Currently gaming on a PC with an i5-4670k@stock (for now), 16Gb RAM 1600 MHz and a GTX 1070

Well that was unexpected...

It even looks quite good. If you could get Steam on the thing then I'd be all over it, but if it's just a glorified Android device then I'm uncertain.

Also, the 4k playback is cool. However, I'd imagine that would really inflate the price...

The important thing is that all these experimental or actually sold devices are held together by the same environment, Android, so just like what happened with the traditional x86+DOS/Windows PC, the market can be left free to naturally evolve and decide which devices will succeed, while the unity of the environment is kept. And in the end, even the least successful ones will have the Android library available, this could be an important selling point to exploit also in marketing: just like in the PC market, as long as the driver support is present, you don't run a risk even choosing an uncommon device.
