Nvidia launches Shield gaming device at CES

LAS VEGAS : Project Shield is small — smaller than a Wii U controller. Fittingly, it looks like a portable Xbox controller with a small flip-up screen. It’s got analog joysticks, buttons, and controllers. Nvidia promises between 5 and 10 hours of gameplay on Shield.

Still a prototype, the final name and design could change before the product goes to market, as soon as in a few months, an Nvidia spokesperson said.

“It’s pure Android,” says Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang. There’s nothing proprietary about it; all jacks are standard and the platform is open. It comes with a microSD card slot.

Shield can connect to the cloud to play Android games, TegraZone games, and PC games for PCs with compatible GeForce graphics cards. It also supports multiplayer mode.
