Comment on NVIDIA Unveils Project Shield Handheld by Anonymous:

I think the concept behind this is to make a handheld-console without making any official library. I think they want to make it so that you could play ANY PC game on the Shield. Might sound like a silly idea at first, but then again you could boot up an Nintendo, SNES, or Sega Emulator and BOOM, you got 1000s of games on the go. Or we could finally play a Touhou game on a Handheld System (I’d buy it just for that)! Same goes for Dating Sims or Visual Novels that we don’t get ported to US, Europe, or basically anywhere outside of Japan. I think it has the potential to be awesome, but we’ll need more details. It’s something I think we should be keeping our eyes on.

    One problem with your comparison is that all of those consoles died because all of the consoles had to have the games developed for each individual console so that meant there were fewer (and lower quality) games for the consoles. With that there was no reason for anyone to buy the consoles or the games. This would be different since all games have the potential of running on all devices so it is just a choice on what one you pick and having the access to the entire library. It is just like …

    Yeah. What are innovation and fresh ideas good for anyway? Everything should just stay the same and become stale for millenia. The German dude

    Oh, and Ouya of course. Can’t wait till that package arrives :D The German dude

    Necessary since NVIDA will get no money from game sales. They have to sell this high to cover their costs, while other console and handheld producers rake in the money with game sales. You will be able to play an incredibly diversity of games with this thing, with it running a non-modified android OS. Personally, I am exited. I really like the technical side of this thing. Same goes for the upcoming steam box running linux. The German dude
