NVIDIA Launches TegraZone.com, Updates App, and Wants to Give Away 5 Acer Iconia Tabs to Celebrate

The folks at NVIDIA are taking this mobile gaming thing as serious as anyone these days.  For months now, we have enjoyed their TegraZone app which highlights any game that has been optimized for devices running Tegra processors.  So to help further influence this world of mobile gaming, NVIDIA has unveiled the new TegraZone.com website as well as an easier way for developers to submit games that they believe are on good enough to be featured as a Tegra-optimized title.

Through this new site, you’ll find many of the same great features you found through the TegraZone app (which updated today by the way), only you can access it from anywhere and at any time.  You will see high res screenshots, videos, interviews with developers, and more.

Oh, and to celebrate the launch of all this gaming goodness, NVIDIA is giving away five (5) Acer Iconia Tabs, plus 15 t-shirts.

    I bought an Acer Iconia A500 at Costco for my neighbor for $350 and it’s a pretty decent tablet! Before giving it to him I took it home and got it all set up for him with apps he would like and setting up different accounts. The tablet has pretty decent specs and is stock Android. It runs great and for the price I just had to get it for him and I wouldn’t mind having one for myself. (He is an old guy that has bad knees and doesn’t have much to do. So far he is on this thing almost nonstop!)

    Limiting these games to the Tegra chip is bs, typical nvidia.

    Haha, what is this about? In the Officail Rules to enter the contest it says:” SPECIAL NOTICE TO CANADIAN ENTRANTS: THE PERSON SELECTED RANDOMLY WILL BE REQUIRED TO CORRECTLY ANSWER A MATHEMATICAL QUESTION INVOLVING AT LEAST FOUR OPERATIONS THAT INVOLVE AT LEAST TWO DIGIT NUMBERS. ” Why would that be required if you were Canadian?

    So is the TegraZone restricted to only Tegra devices? Or can other powerful dual cores play these games? Haha might be a dumb question, but I really am curious.

      Look up the app Chainfire3D. Allows non Tegra devices to play the Tegra only games. It does require root though.

        Every self-respecting Android owner should have root, even if they don’t run a custom ROM :)
