Gaming has come a long way in just the past couple of years. Gamers can have glasses-free 3D gaming in their pockets with the 3DS, Ouya is putting indie development and streaming at the forefront, the Vita pushes handheld hardware technology to new heights, the Wii U is trying to revolutionize the living room once again, Steam is releasing a box and now this: Nvidia, who are most well-known for their GPUs, are releasing an actual device known as the Nvidia Shield.
I have no idea where the name came from, because it clearly is just a controller with an odd screen attached to the top of it (which will hopefully be detachable, you’ll understand why soon enough.) So, this brings us to the topic at hand: what is it and why should you care? I’m glad you asked, because I thought the same things at first.
