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.
NVIDIA have decided that instead of giving us another (of many) looks at their upcoming Android-powered SHIELD gaming console, they'd take us behind the scenes at one of the most popular game developers studio. We've seen SHIELD plenty, and today we're getting a behind the scenes look at Gearbox Studio, as well as their heads own personal Crib - MTV style.
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.
Dead Trigger 2 and while this isn't the first time we have seen details of the game, there is new trailer video that has recently been released.

ASUS has been quite busy. The folks from ASUS just announced a slew of new products on the first day of Computex 2013 in Taiwan.

One that stood out however, is the New Transformer Pad Infinity complete with an ultra HD display and NVIDIA's new quad-core Tegra 4 processor.
HP have been trying to break into the Android tablet game lately. First with their not so impressive Slate 7 tablet, and now with their Slatebook x2. HP's new Slatebook x2 has a pretty good shot at reaching the homes of many potential buyers thanks to the 10-inch full HD display and quad-core Tegra 4, and we're now hearing it might ship early.
NVIDIA SHIELD has recently been spotted in an FCC filing. The Tegra 4 powered handheld gaming console is sporting the original codename, which for those who might have missed that detail, was Project Thor. That bit aside, the filing unfortunately doesn't reveal anything new.

NVIDIA's new game console, Project SHIELD, have been extremely hard at work perfecting the device to be the ultimate Android gaming device.
