In terms of the graphical power, and the quality of console's screen, Sony PSVita is a far superior console than this!!!!!

Nvidia Shield is a high price console, plus, it's too bulky to carry along on train or bus, and I think the battery life can be a problem for on-going gamers.

Verdict: 5.4 out of 10!

Only if you have a decent Nvidia graphics card. The PC streaming doesn't work without one so that already limits who can and cannot buy this. Anyone running AMD graphics instantly has to budget $349 for a handheld plus $400+ for a new GPU to use the most useful feature of the device.

The only reason I'd find this appealing at all is because I'm a big fan of handhelds, but $350 is pretty steep. Too many better alternatives for gaming on the go unless you absolutely have to have your steam games and have the proper setup for this.

It being an android device enables you to play emulated games of all kind via the many emulator on google play. Would surely make for an encredible retro-gming handheld.

N64 Emulators, PSX Emulators. But that $349 price tag is a little high.
