The NVIDIA SHIELD is an awesome hybrid beast. It offers you the convenience of portable gaming. It lets you play Android games without the small screen or pain-in-the-butt of finger swiping. It gives you the flexibility to move your PC games away from your gaming rig. It lets you stream movies or listen to music, with full support for FLV and MKV. Use it to pilot an AR Drone. You can even run the most popular emulators from your home library of retro games. Basically, we looked at it and knew it was our sorta thing.
