Nvidia shows sturdier Shield gaming device just before it ships

James Niccolai | June 4, 2013
Pre-orders for Shield have been slow, Nvidia's CEO said, but the company stepped up its marketing for the device later this month.

In the demonstration here, the game looked to be playing smoothly on the TV, just like it did on the PC across the room where it was being streamed from.

A player could save the game on the TV, then pick it up in the same spot on their PC or on a Shield device, he said.

It was only a demonstration, and Huang didn't say when the remote streaming system might be offered in product form.

Nvidia has also worked with Valve, the company that operates the Steam games store, to make it work better on portable devices, he said.

It's all part of a plan to usher in the "multi screen world," according to Huang. With an application processor, Android and the cloud, all screens -- be they TVs, laptops or the display in the back of a car -- will be able to play video games, music and movies, he said.

"You're life is pretty much in the cloud now, so any display with an application processor and Android suddenly becomes very useful," he said.
