    We have an intriguing press release to share with you guys today. This announcement was made at Google I/O earlier today, and comes from the folks at NVIDIA. They are officially launching their NVIDIA Shield TV device, and it comes with a huge array of features and functions. Here's a big chunk of the press release and a video above:

    This seems very impressive. If you are going for the basic Shield TV, you can add the remote and an extra controller for a total of $310. That's not too shabby considering the power level of the hardware in this little console. What do you guys think?

    Until they get Madden I'm going to pass. With that said, if you are not a madden fan this may indeed be the device for you.

    By the way, yes I know there are work arounds floating around the web streaming from a xbox live account but most of those work arounds require a xbox one or 360. The point of me buying the shield is to keep from having another console. Maybe they will sign EA in the future. Until then I will sit on the sideline.
