Video Showing Nvidia Project Shield Playing PC Games

Earlier in the year we reported on Nvidia’s Project Shield Android mobile gaming console.  Now Project Shield demonstrates, in a video, its ability to wirelessly pair its Nvidia Project Shield handheld gaming console with a PC.  In the video they access their game titles on their PC by simply having a GeForce GTX 680 enabled PC with the software installed.

The Nvidia Shield sports a Tegra 4 processor, a custom 72 core GPU all being controlled by the dual analog control sticks and the 4 trigger controls.  Click play below to watch the Nvidia gaming console in action!

“In this episode, we take you through a demo of Project SHIELD playing Need for Speed: Most Wanted via a GeForce GTX 680-enabled PC. You’ll see how the best quality graphics from the PC combine with the smooth dual analog 

joysticks of Project SHIELD to deliver one of the best driving experiences possible.”


The Nvidia Project Shield has managed to create an awesome handheld gaming system with enough horsepower to play titles traditionally only available on your stationary consoles.  Is this the future of gaming as we know it or do you think that pricing and other issues will hold it back from taking the mobile gaming world by storm? Let us know what you think in the comment section below.

  1. Being able to play Mass Effect in any room of my house will be worth every penny. There are some great Android titles arriving soon as well. This is a recipe for success IMHO.

  2. Owning a Nvidia 680 computer and then buying a handheld thing with a screen. Not feaseable for a normal family with someone at the age who wants this hand held gaming. I dont even believe its 100% portable if it needs to stream off the PC. I want to see it away from the “streaming action” where mobile gaming is actually useful for little kids. Hmmm.. more likely the kid will rather put the game using the 680 computer on the second tv the family owns which will be the same price or cheaper than the shield thing.
