NVIDIA SHIELD iFixit teardown gives a look at the inside

We recently reviewed the NVIDIA SHIELD and while we took a rather thorough look at the system itself as well as what it is capable of doing in terms of gaming there was something we couldn't do -- open it up and take a look at the interior guts.

Mad Catz Project “M.O.J.O” console fully revealed at E3

I think everyone who had a Playstation 2 when they were younger probably hated being poor teenagers. Being poor teenagers meant one of two things: Not joining your friends for lunch on Wednesday's at the local Pizza joint, and not being able to afford new gaming stuff when the originals broke. So it was with much despair that we would drag our heels to the nearest game store and pick up a Mad Catz PS2 Controller, in utter shame. Well, Mad Catz has come a long way since then, and at this years E3 expo, they've revealed just how far they've come.

The GamePop console was announced a short while back and was immediately thought of as a competitor to other Android game consoles such as the OUYA and GameStick.

NVIDIA SHIELD also has a non-gaming Nexus experience

We had known the NVIDIA SHIELD was more than just a gaming system. This detail was revealed early on and in fact, the SHIELD will arrive running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Given this and given things will not be buried and hidden, this means SHIELD users will be able to do just about everything they can on a regular Android smartphone or tablet. In fact, some of the experience actually looks quite nice.
