    Great article Shawn, I was not very excited about SHIELD until reading your article, perhaps I had not consider the possibilities!. Still for RPGs that are the games I love, the Tablet/Phone controllers are good enough but cannot imagine how they will behave with SHIELD.

    Do you think game producers that have already implemented touch based controllers will bring support for the Shield Joystick?

    So do I always have to be at a Wifi spot to play all my games, or just some games need Wifi, or if I download a game on my Shield using Wifi can I play them without needing Wifi to play them?

    Can you play pc games on sheild without having them for your actual pc at home? My pc sucks and this would be a good thing to know.

      If the Shield works well over Nvidia GRID cloud gaming service then YES you will be able to play games that are not on your PC.

      If you want to stream your games from your desktop PC to your SHIELD, then yes. According to Nvidia a GTX 650 is the minimum requirement.

    I cant wait for the NVidia shield to come out, they said 2nd quarter 2013 which 2nd quarter ends the end of next month so hopefully soon it will come out, I already got an NVidia GTX 650Ti which hopefully will be enough power they say atleast a GTX 650. Also im hoping this costs as much as a nexus tablet, I think a $199-$299 Price Point For this thing would be ideal. Hope we hear more news soon.

  5. Hmmm…do you know something we don’t? 3G is not confirmed and wifi streaming can only be done in your own home according to Nvidia and every other site covering the shield…

      Hmm… Trying to get confirmation on this. But all will be revealed when we attend the Nvidia GTC next month.
