$300 is pretty expensive for a torch

It's still rather expensive like all Nvidia products. The fact that it sounds like it's locked out to only streaming off of Nvidia GPU's makes it a lot less enticing. Streaming games from PC could've been rather cool but I can only imagine it being a hassle and clunky; especially since most PC gamers (myself included) would rather fork out that $300 on an upgrade not an accessory. Then there's the fact it's a $300 Android gaming device when a 3DS is half the price and PSVita is $50 cheaper.

Still too expensive. Although it'll immediately be better than the Vita if it has a few games, that's not a high standard. I'll stick to the 3DS.

I don't quite get why "You can stream from your PC!" is a selling point on things like this. Sure, it's great, and streaming lets you play things on high-end settings without having to shell out for the hardware, but if you're just streaming from your PC you already bought, then chances are you're at home and would have more fun just playing it on the PC you already own anyway.

I hope it catches on, though. The only thing standing between mobile games and complexity is buttons.

I'm pretty sure it will be a major failure...I'm happy with my PSVita and 3DS
