Yeah i'm sure it will be a huge success...................NOT!!!

Iwata laughs and Vita am cry.

But seriously, the idea is actually pretty good and the design is ok'ish, but I really hate that they put the analog sticks in some sort of hole (indentation?). If I could play my Steam library on this thing while surfing the web on my PC, that would be pretty sick.

 

Edit: upon closer inspection, the device has nearly everything people have asked for. HDMI output, sd card support, dual analog sticks, analog triggers. It's practically a 360 controller with a screen on it. This thing could do well.



Ongoing bet with think-man: He wins if MH4 releases in any shape or form on PSV in 2013, I win if it doesn't.

That would be insane though but why would anyone want to do that....if they have a monitor with a nice resolution already o.O?

To play while you go into bathroom .

I'd be excited if it wasn't just an Android device like the one I already have. I'm sure it will kick ass, but even with a controller none of my Android games can compare to my 3DS games.

The problem will all the new Android gaming consoles/handhelds is that they are limited by the lowest common denominator. Mobile gaming developers have to make their games work on a Galaxy S, Galaxy SIII, and everything in-between.

That's why Android and iOS games will never be able to compete with closed single run dedicated consoles.

I'll play Angry Birds on the go when I don't want to hall around more than one device and I'll enjoy Zelda OoT 3D when I want a real game.


"Using software built by Nvidia, the Shield provides remote access to the games installed on your gaming PC at home, including Steam titles. Users can play any PC game on the Shield from anywhere within the same local Wi-Fi network. " This device won't be limited to smartphone games.


Why, pray tell, would I EVER want to stream my PC games, that usualy work better with a mouse and keyboard, onto a tiny screen with a lower resolution than my 24 inch full HD monitor? Why oh why would I care about playing a PC game on a handheld that loses that ability if I walk 100 feet away from my wireless router? Why would ANYONE buy this thing for streaming PC games?

If I want to play a PC game I'm going to do it with my kick ass gaming PC.

As I said in the parallel thread, becuase I very much enjoy this function on my Wii U.  Due to Steam deals I have a lot of great controller friendly games (mostly console ports) on my PC.  With this device I can go down to the kitchen and play Darksiders or Mass Effect while I make and eat a sandwhich, or play some Bioshock while laying down in bed before I sleep.   I can also play Batman Arkham City on the couch while watching foot ball. I play a lot at my desk, but it is really nice not having to.

i asked that yesterday in the steambox thread, why do people know how many sales a device needs to be a flop or not? it's not as if it is made to play unique games on it which needs much support, it is made to play your pc games and android stuff on it, maybe even 100k sales would be enough, who knows?

i'm maybe interested in that, i could play borderlands 2 even more then (pezus already believes i'm crazy with that game)

well from the info that we have now i honestly think it wont be a success, looking at the specs they are pretty high, considering this wants to play andriod games it should be a quad core device, and seeing how some specs are higher than the vita's (higher res screen, HDMI output) its certainly going to cost about or more than the vita to produce. also Nvidia doesnt make games, so they basically want to make a system that is profitable from hardware day one, resulting in the retail price to be even higher. so what do we have? a product that has no market for it. it has controls to play serious games but the games that is plays are simple low budget iOS or andriod games. its cost will put it head to head with tablets that play the same games and appeal to much more people and if u want it to simply play games on than you have vita and 3ds, wich are cheaper and play MUCH more games and MUCH BETTER games. there is NO market for it.

but there will be people purchasing it even if not many and nobody of us knows how much they invested in r&d and how much their other costs will be. like i said, even a small amount of sales could be profitable and if it is made to stream pc games and to play android games it will work for many years because even android games in some years will run on it and pc games will always run on it, even in 15 years as long as they work with a controller.

all they have to do to make it a success is selling it for a profit and getting back the investments which shouldn't be too high, it was only for the device and not for games and most of the money they invested was not for the device itself, they would have invested it even without this device for the chips build in it (tegra 4 and stuff)

Thing is, this doesn't have to sell a monster amount of units to be a success.  Software for it isn't tied to it's suceess, it runs andoird and streams Steam which are both already successes.   It can be sold as a premium item at a premium cost, and as long as it, and Ouya, and the Archos gamepad, and all the other android with controller devices sell a decent amount COLLECTIVELY, then there will eb a market for more advanced Android games that use physical controls.  When that market exisits, more games will be made that take advantage of it.  Then the fun really begins.

true and its to early to actually give a prediction, but from what i know now i feel it wont even make its money back. the competition is too high and strong, some things are just bound to fail. and i have a feeling its going to be these andriod products that want to offer an "advanced andriod experience".
