NVIDIA Teases More Project SHIELD, This Time With Borderlands 2

Project SHIELD Borderlands 2

Late last night, NVIDIA decided to continue its tease fest of Project SHIELD to the Android/Gaming communities. We still have no release dates and no pricing, but sure, let’s go ahead and watch some more demos of this thing in action. This time, we have them showing off some Borderlands 2 gameplay, with textures cranked all the way up to 11 while the game is being streamed from a Falcon TiKi PC in the same room. 

I know I’m not alone when I say this. NVIDIA, please stop messing around and just give us a price so we know whether to be excited or saddened. It’s not that hard, right?

    if they ran servers with the new games this would be amazing like how they did the tech demos. i dropped out of the Graphics card update frenzy and currently dont have a cpu to run these games but to be able to have PC quality and portability i’d be in for sure if i didnt need my own rig pushing the data. still its a huge leap in terms of streaming games.

    some of you are missing the point.. they are demonstrating cloud gaming.. obviously if you are in the same room you should to play on the PC.. wasn’t the point

    The perfect bathroom companion.

    Depending on price I might pick one of these up, currently waiting for the PS4.

    I imagine I’m in the vast minority, but I’m really interested in this because my current household setup doesn’t really leave me with a great place for a desktop in our main living areas. I have a laptop that I use for gaming, but that’s not a perfect solution either [due to non-upgradeability plus it needs to be setup on a table anyway]. Assuming input latency is taken care of, this could be a great way for me to work through my Steam backlog.

    Wow, really? Why would I care that you can play games on your PC from the controller? I would rather just play this on my PC.

      Well, the point is that you can take your PC games anywhere. They’re redefining “AFK” :P

        haha!

        Exactly! I wonder though..can you be at another location(friend’s house) and still play from your PC on Project Shield? Or do you need to be in the same area(your own house) as your PC? I understand the need to be in the same location as your router(WiFi), but maybe nVidia will set up some sort of subscription plan where you can be anywhere and still play games from PC to PS as long as your PC is on. That would be pretty sweet.

          It would be nice if the licensing let’s you have the game across multiple devices, but I don’t think people are going to pay $60 to play this game solely with an nvidia device when the graphics and game play is better on a console or pc

          • Speio

            I think the idea is that a lot of people would already have the game purchased on Steam, and this device would be complimentary. My point of contest would still be portability: if I buy a handheld, I want to be able to get out of the house with my games (play on any wifi or cellular connection).

          • EvanTheGamer

            It would work if you’re traveling all the time I guess.

      • Chris King

        You can take them anywhere, but not play them anywhere. Or am i wrong ,can you use this in car or on train,bus or hotal room? If it can I’d be first in line.

    • WAldenIV

      Especially if you have a $2000+ PC.

      NVIDIA how long do i have to wait before this available on phones, or are they going to hack something and flash me a file so i can rock it on the ol’ S3. next 2 weeks ya think, lol.

    I wonder if their streaming technology will be able to be “modified” to allow Radeon graphics cards to be used. I also read that the streaming technology only works over a wi-fi connection. Here is a stretch and maybe some other very tech savy people could come up with a guess, but if I take my 4G LTE phone, enable a VPN to my system at home and use my phone as a mobile hotspot for the shield, would the shield then think that it is on a wifi connection with home computer and steam the gaming content and what kind of bandwidth would be needed.

    • http://twitter.com/misterE33 Mr E

      4G in my house actually tends to be faster than my home wifi. However, the big problem is latency. That’s what can kill cloud gaming, causing input lag. I’m interested to see how well that’s taken care of here.

    • Chris Stuart

      Look up an app called Kainy. Its certainly not perfect, but I have managed to stream skyrim over 4G with minimal lag.

    I’d be more impressed if it were playing Borderlands 2 natively.
