    Looks like Nividia's Grid PC game streaming will be available for Ouya! From what I can gather, you have to have a"Grid Approved" Nvidia card (in your PC) for this to work with Ouya, Shield and any other Grid enabled Android device.

    WELP! Looks like Nvidia might as well give up on Shield. Why bother buying that thing when you can use Grid on a device that's roughly 1/3 the price of Nvidia's device.

    I might actually consider getting a Ouya just for that, it would be nice to play my PC games on my big screen in the living room :)

    You know you totally can get a DVI converter if your graphics card doesn't support HDMI, right?

    Because a low-cost Home Console and a Handheld Console are totally the same thing. :rolleyes:

    And a 30 meter cable extension to my downstairs TV? Aswell as extension cables for all my peripherals?

    It would be far more convenient just spending the $99 and streaming it over my pre-existing gigabit network ;)

    My point was that there are other, cheaper Tegra 3 mobile devices. If Grid gets rolled out to all Tegra 3+ devices, this makes Shield irrelevant.

    And those other, cheaper Tegra 3 devices don't have an awesome controller attached to them.

    Android OS, bruh! -Some things called a DualShock 3 and a XBox 360 wired controller. Still cheaper than Shield

    Interesting, but we'll see how this will start working. As the guy said, latency is a problem in one way or the other. Hopefully they get this up and running..

    And that's the most portable solution compared to Shield? Nope.

    Shield? Portable? LMFAO!!!! The Old Skool DS is more portable than that. Shield is a controller slapped onto a five inch screen. Frankly Nvidia needs to go back to the drawing board and come out with a new design.

    Oh yeah, all you need to do is use some duct tape to attach the controller and there you go! Portable console! :rolleyes:

    Lighty, please... Some people want to play their games in a comfortable fashion and are willing to pay for it. ;)

    The thing MIGHT be comfortable due to the controller half but it's definitely NOT portable! Look at it. It's a friggin monster. They should have just copy/paste the Wii U Gamepad design and called it a day.

    Have you actually seen a Shield IRL? The thing isn't even big, plus you can actually fold it. It doesn't have the controller sticking out, so it is a lot more portable than pretty much any Android device + a PS360 controller. Like it or not, that's a fact.

    Just watched the video and by the sound of things this is NOT grid but a cloud hosting service they will sell to third parties so it will run remote on their servers, not on your home computer :(

    Even better!!! Well, for me but that puts me in the place of having to decide on whether to continue my cloud collection through Onlive or Nvidia. I already have 18 titles invested in OnLive.

    Please enjoy not gaming when your Internet is down. :D

    EDIT: I like how "Always Online" is a terrible concept but "streaming to the OUYA" is a godsent. :rofl:
    EDIT2: "Amazing Gaming. Anywhere.*"



    *requires fast-speed broadband connection, you will only be able to play at home.

    And then you can buy or if you already have a personal cloud. Ouya pretty cool when it comes to streaming, I'll give it that. I rather get the Ouya if I'm pretty much tied to online and no used games. :P

    Um.... It's very rare that my connection goes down and also, I work for the largest ISP in the world as a technician, I think I'll be OK in regards to cloud gaming. Finally, I only use Cloud gaming to supplement my digital collection. I just see it as paying someone to house my games on their PC until I can get a gaming quality one of my own. Which doing that is last on my to do list. I have a huge backlog that I need to finish.
