NVIDIA Portable Announced

NVIDIA unveils Project Shield, a handheld android gaming device powered by a 72-core NVIDIA GeForce GPU/Quad-core A15 CPU. This will include support for playing PC games on NVIDIA-powered systems as well, as outlined on this page:

Project SHIELD gives you the power to wirelessly access your GeForceŽ GTX-powered computer from the comfort of your couch. Play your favorite PC games, including great titles from Steam, on a full-size game controller with ultra-low latency thanks to Project SHIELD's game-speed Wi-Fi and the fast performance of GeForce GTX 600 GPUs.

Fat, awkward, heavy, latency issues, etc. Why would I play on a tiny screen when I don't have to? Why would I want a controller in the first place when I don't need one for 99.9% of games? How soon will it be incompatible with newer Nvidia stuff? Probably inside a week to force people in the upgrade cycle. No thanks!

Yeah, I don't get it. If I want to play a game like AC3 with a controller, I will A) Hook up my wireless 360 controller to my PC to play it on my 27" monitor or B) Play it on my PS3 on my 46" TV.

At no point while I am at home do I want to play a game with great graphics on a screen the size of my cell phone. Hell, I wish my Vita did video out to my TV.

On the go? Yeah, at least my Vita has Uncharted, Assassin's Creed, and Lego Lord of the Rings. I don't want to play some crap Android game, and this is certainly not going to stream my PC games while I am in a train or on the road.
