Portable gaming is back and flashier than ever
Portable gaming systems such as Game Boy and Sega Game Gear were all the rage in the '90s. While home-based consoles like PlayStation, Xbox and Wii have become more popular in recent years, one company is looking to bring back the portable ways of the past.
Freshness magazine reports the NVIDIA Shield hopes to transform the way gamers enjoy their favorite pastime. The latest portable gaming unit features the "soul" of an Android tablet and is equipped with a 5-inch, multi-touch display screen that boasts a 1280 x 720 resolution. Aside from a solid screen, the gaming system also has a Tegra 4 processor backed by 2 GB of RAM, Bluetooth 3.0, built-in speakers, 16GB of internal memory and a 28.8 watt-hour battery.
According to The Verge, while the console has a way to go - having the ease to download non-Android games, for starters - for the $299 price tag, it's a "seriously impressive piece of hardware."
