NVIDIA’s SHIELD Tablet is the next step in Android/PC gaming

What if the NVIDIA SHIELD were different? The portable gaming device turned heads on launch, and continued to do so well into its lifespan, supporting PC gaming as well as Android. The latest iteration of SHIELD takes it one step further, bringing you a tablet and controller that work together, but aren’t joined at the hip.

The NVIDIA Shield is probably the best evidence you will have of a PC gaming-inclined company acknowledging the exponential growth of the casual gaming market, especially in Android devices.

Android gaming may get a truly mobile experience with the JXD S5800

Mobile gaming is certainly fun, but can be limiting. The lack of hardware controls is sometimes frustrating, as games like Grand Theft Auto are much better with dedicated controls. Devices like a PS Vita are fun, but require yet another device to tote around. Plus, we don’t get all the open source fun of Android. Consoles like Ouya or Gamestick are fun, but tie us to the living room. NVIDIA's Shield is great, but a touch bulky, and best used as a secondary device.

OUYA upcoming update will change how the interface looks

The OUYA gaming console, which has only been on retail for less than a month, has undoubtedly started a new kind of Android gaming scene. But like with any pioneer or trendsetter, there will always be some things that it won't get right at first, such as the initial user interface for the system.
