NVIDIA Shield To Take GeForce GTX PC Game Streaming Global
The portable handheld gaming device formerly known as "Project Shield", the NVIDIA Shield is going global soon. Currently, people who live in North America can pre-order the NVIDIA Shield for $349, with orders shipping in June.
For overseas customers who wanted to know if they would be able to get their hands on the Android gaming device, the answer is "yes". The buzz on the NVIDIA Shield is gaining momentum, especially after its recent cameo appearance on the ABC hit show, Modern Family.
An NVIDIA representative didn't give the exact overseas release date, but the rollout is expected to happen after the late June release date.
"Shield will launch only in North America to begin with, as it is an entirely new venture for Nvidia. Never before have we produced and sold hardware like this, so there are lots of things to do and learn before we begin an international rollout," NVIDIA marketing rep, Andrew Burnes said.
Competitors Sony and Nintendo roll products out in the same way, approaching different markets at different times. The retail price of the NVIDIA Shield may seem intimidating, however the gaming experience that it has to offer offsets the price tag.
The NVIDIA Shield's built-in Tegra 4 processor and the ability to stream GeForce GTX powered PC games are two key selling points. The PC game streaming capability lets users play their favorite PC games right in the palms of their hands. Users can play PC games from any room with the fast performance GeForce GTX GPUs. Featured games include Batman: Arkham City, Borderlands 2 , Dishonored, Left For Dead 2, Portal 2 and Skyrim.
Steam Big Picture can be accessed on a full-size controller using NVIDIA Shield's game-speed Wi-Fi. The device comes with the Android games Sonic 4 Episode II and Expendable: Rearmed preinstalled. For now, Europe, Asia, Oceania, Africa, Antarctica and other regions will have to wait patiently why NVIDIA tests the waters on the gaming market.
