CES 2013: Watch Nvidia's Project Shield stream from a PC

1:58 /

The Nvidia Project Shield is a new Android-based gaming device that play all native Android apps and streams games from your PC.

-Hey, guys. Eric Franklin here from CNET. I'm at CES 2013. I'm looking right now at Project Shield, Nvidia's Project Shield. It's basically-- it's a gaming device. It runs a pure version of Android. And it-- as you can see, it kind of looks like a video game controller with a screen, a 5-inch screen at the top. The resolution is 1280 by 720. And, you know, just holding it in your hand, it just feels like, you know, like-- to my experience, it feels like an Xbox controller. It has, you know, the same-- the same left/right buttons. It has this middle button here that goes right-- right to the Tegra Zone. It has a deep pad over here, two analog sticks. The trigger buttons are on the back, also shoulder bumpers on the back. It also has a micro SD card slot. A-- it has a micro HDMI, micro USB and a headphone jack. It also has these speakers on the top here. And Nvidia is using some new technology which I couldn't poke you or talk about it at length. But the speaker sound really powerful. One of the biggest coolest aspects of this thing is that it streams PC games, so if you have an Nvidia PC running a GeForce 650 or later, you can stream from your PC to this device over Wi-Fi. So let's say if you're in another room in your house and you want to play a high-end PC game but you don't want to sit at your desk to where your PC is, you can just take it to your bedroom or the kitchen or other rooms which can probably think of would be great for this kind of thing. So it's-- there's no price yet. It's coming out in quarter two. But that's pretty much all that we know right now. It feels kind of light. It feels well as heavy as an Xbox and it shall be probably a little bit heavier than that. Once again, I'm Eric Franklin and this has been a first look at the Nvidia Project Shield.
