    [POLL] Will you buy Nvidia's Project Shield Handheld Gaming Device?






    Just a couple days ago, Nvidia announced their new handheld gaming device "Project Shield". A cloud based mobile gaming system that allows users to play PC titles right on the device.

    Apparently, NVIDIA has been developing this Android-based handheld portable gaming console for years now. This new portable gaming device includes a console-style controller with built-in speakers, a 5-inch flipping display powered by the new Tegra 4 processor, and can actually stream games to your HDTV wirelessly.

    From the few hands on reviews we've seen so far of the device, the hardware seems to be of great quality, making some other Android-powered gaming systems look rather cheap and plasticy. The speakers are loud, the display is clear and bright, and all of the buttons and triggers seem to be what you would expect on any top console gaming system on the market today.


    So, without knowing how much it is, would you buy one? Let us know the ideal pricepoint that'd make you grab one of these devices...

    Yes. Part to play Android games but also to use Splashtop THD on it so play game son my PC in high def on the device with a controller. Assuming of course the cost isn't something like $500 or whatever. I'd pay at most $150 if it doesn't have a touch screen, $200 if it does.

    Depends on price for me.. I'm not a huge gamer but $100-$200 might get me to buy one.

    Yeah, $199 is probably going to be the sweet spot for most.

    It depends on the price for me. I think I can do up to $300 if it does graphics as good as the PS3/Xbox being that it will also be portable. Anything more would definitely be a no go. I'm very interested in that other Android based gaming system as well.

    $150 would be a good price for me also curious to know how many games would be available and how much they would cost.

    Technically, every game already on Android should be playable on it. You already have games that can be used with a controller. What I didn't see is if the screen was a touch screen. If not, I'm assuming the joysticks could control a cursor of some sort. That is just an assumption though. I'd have to buy some emulators too for it.

    Yep, I agree that something above 200 is too much, if it was 150 I will consider; and if it's under a 100 you have a costumer.

    I wonder if my note 2 with a game pad could do everything this thing can.
