New Android Console – NVIDIA Shield Announced

A new Android powered console has been announced during the Game Developers Conference (GDC) this week by none other than NVIDIA. The new console will run on Android and features up to 50 games at launch. This new console will be named the NVIDIA Shield (not to be confused with the Shield tablet and controller). For more information on the console, have a look at their spiffy website by clicking here.

Using the Shield, users can stream not only Android games from the Google Play Store, but also movies, music and the likes from Hulu and Youtube onto your TV. It aims to be the next generation entertainment hub in your living room.

In conjunction with the launch of the Shield, several top notch AAA games will be released on the Google Play Store. Among the 50 games compatible at launch, these console-quality star studded games will be out for everyone (who owns an Android device) to enjoy:

  • Crysis 3
  • Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
  • Borderlands: Pre-sequel
  • Resident Evil 5
  • Doom 3 BFG Edition
  • War Thunder
  • Contrast
  • The Talos Principle
  • Batman Arkham Origins
  • Grid 2
  • Metro: Last Light
  • Half Life 2
  • Some Telltale Games
  • Etc

For the full list of games, check out their website by clicking here. These games are truly amazing high quality console games, so I think it is safe to say that some of them will only be compatible with the Shield. Still, it is definitely a good time to be an Android gamer now, as more and more of these games continue to leak to the general Android user.
