Despite some "strange" criticism (Specially by those who think this is your average "handheld" device; with it's own proprietary software) and my own, this was a strange surprise.
Sure, NVIDIA has more money than any gaming company I can think of. But to throw money at this type of device, definitely came as a surprise.

Still, all odd points aside, being able to stream your entire Steam library to a portable handheld device sounds pretty badass.
Not only that, but future "PC" titles would be automatically supported by this.
To add more sugar, the device has an HDMI, USB and Micro SD ports.
This much synergy is what I always thought the VITA truly needed. Alas, we all know where that went.

I do find the layout a bit laughable, though.
So clunky looking.
You'd think NVIDIA, who is so close to RAZER, would have a better design in mind. But then again, this is a prototype, so...

I no longer play B&S nor frequent these forums as often as before.

While i'm amused by the tech used within this device, I hardly see the point of nvidia needing to release this. I also agree that the controller looks clunky/far from my liking to actually put money down on it.
Still, i'm interested to see how the final product turn out.

I want the streaming games from my PC over wifi part on my phone. Otherwise it just seems like another one of those Android tablets with a controller built in. And my android tablet has become nothing more than a manga/ebook reader to me. This thing definitely has some serious possibility. Maybe an NVidia phone similar to the Xperia play with all the technology of this would do well.
