Owners of the NVIDIA SHIELD have four new game titles they can check out this morning on Google Play, one of which may lead to rumors surfacing that Half-Life 3 is actually confirmed.
Continuing its push to bring console and PC-class gaming titles to the Android TV platform for its consumers, NVIDIA announced the availability of Half-Life 2: Episode Two, Q.U.B.E. Director’s Cut, Never Alone, and Funk of Titans. (more…)
The SHIELD Android TV set-top box from NVIDIA is receiving a big update this morning, labeled as upgrade 1.2. Inside, owners who have a 4K TV in the living room can now share photos with super high resolution directly from the Photos & Videos app. (more…)
Launching alongside SHIELD, NVIDIA’s Android TV set-top box, Hotline Miami is currently my favorite game for the Android TV platform. To play the game, a controller is needed as you assume the role of an antihero who battles Miami’s underworld of crime lords in the late 80s. As you will quickly find out, your thinking cap will come in handy, as you must plot out the best way to clear buildings full of baddies, and needless to say, this game isn’t rated “Mature 17+” for nothing.

Your Android TV will soon have a few more apps to play with, including HBO Go, HBO Now, CBS News, Twitch, and FX Now.

After NVIDIA announced the SHIELD set-top box / game console this week, I saw a random Internet commenter state that it was nothing more than “OUYA 2.0.” While the thought is mildly humorous, SHIELD is much more than what OUYA ever was, hoped to be, and ever will be.
With the birth of Android TV last year, NVIDIA is placing a bet on the living room, and if the upward tick in smart TV purchases is any preliminary indicator, the company could have a very successful product on their hands. (more…)
At tonight’s “Made to Game” event in San Francisco, NVIDIA unveiled its newest product, a set-top box for the living room called the NVIDIA SHIELD.
The box features a high-performance WiFi system, USB connectors, gigabit ethernet port, and more. The NVIDIA SHIELD runs Android TV, and in fact, is the world’s first 4K Android TV box. The box comes with a remote, which doubles as the mic you use to control Android TV. (more…)
The future of gaming will arrive at a March 3 event, courtesy of NVIDIA. At least that’s what a press invite they sent to us is claiming.
It’s anyone’s guess as to what they will show, but they did note in the invite that this product has been “more than 5 years in the making.” Are we talking a new mobile processor like the Tegra X1 that was demoed during their CES event?

We will be there to find out. (more…)
