Nvidia Shield Showcase: Cribs Edition
There’s plenty of gaming news coming out today thanks to E3, but rather than big fancy presentations, Nvidia has taken a slightly more laid back approach to advertising its new gaming platform with its latest promotional video.
This latest Nvidia Shield ad, if you can call it that, comes in the form of a “Cribs Edition” show, featuring a behind the scenes look at Gearbox Studios and tour of Gearbox CEO and President Randy Pitchford’s home. He shows off his impressive gaming collection, awesome self-built home theatre, and his various gaming setups. As a PC gamer myself, I have to admit that I’m pretty envious of the amount of tech in his home.
Anyway, without spoiling anything further, take a look at the video for yourself. If you’re just interested in the Nvidia Shield stuff, then you can skip to around 5:51.
The streaming from PC to Shield feature at 6:25 looks particularly impressive; I can imagine it coming in quite handy for PC gamers who just want to sit on the sofa for a more casual gaming session. Importantly, there doesn’t seem to be any noticeable input lag, but that will obviously depend on the speed and quality of your home WiFi network.
Nvidia Shield appears to be shaping up quite nicely, but it will be interesting to see how well a new portable gaming system will sell in the face of the recently announced next-generation consoles from Sony and Microsoft.
