    When I first say that I thought "really, *another* android gaming device?" On reading it though I could see myself going for that, depending on how much it costs, reliability etc.

    Not so bothered about the Android gaming element - have a phone/tablet already.

    But the streaming from the PC looks really cool. I could see myself using that.

    The secondary streaming function has me Intreasted. Current remote desktop type technology's are just to fiddly and laggy.

    Known as 'Sharzam' in 98.5% of games

    What would be better is if the streaming worked on a normal laptop. So i have a PC with a GTX something and a laptop with a kepler NVIDIA card too. Why can't i use the laptop in a similar lag-free way?

    I can just about do it already with splashtop but its a bit too laggy for anything useful.

    The more I look at it the more I like it. Nice to see Nvidia trying something a bit different too.

    Black is the colour of win.

    First hands on.

    Not impressed by the analogue sticks, I find the ps3 left stick really uncomfortable for more than half an hour.

    I've gone from curious to interested, the controller actually look usable from that video. But it's nVidia, it's going to cost around 399.

    My son just came downstairs and I mentioned this to him. He said 'yeah I already know. Looks cool.' and walked off.

    :(

    FCUTA!

    Looks shit... and frankly I can't see many devs taking advantage of the spec anyway.

    Razz is right. Nvidia have been doing a little price gouging in the GPU market these past few years. They got a performance gap on amd and really exploited it.

    Their ancillary tech such as 3d vision 2 is really expensive for what it is. 1 pair of shutter glasses and a small usb controller.

    I'm convinced this wont be cheap but will carry the usual Nvidia premium.

    If it's priced sensibly it could tempt me to the green side, can't see it though!

    Dont kid yourself, Jimmy. If a cow ever got the chance, hed eat you and everyone you care about!
