    AOSP gaming handheld console. Let’s see if it fares better than the XPeria Play.

    Thanks nvidia but I think I’ll play on my 60″ Led instead.

    • Sean

      Thats why it had HDMI out

  • Graham

    You know, this is pretty darn neat. I likely won’t get one, but I like seeing innovation and competition in this market. The Steam integration is very interesting.

  • Wilbour

    If this could play Steam on the big screen my son will be all over this. It’s the price that will make the differance. I am sure it will be $200 or more but if it was closer to $150 it would be a hit.

      More. Much much more.

  • Ron Mexico

    Sold! Where do I send my money?

  • Johnnnnnny5

    Damn that’s one ugly device. Excellent concept though. If they can make it nicer with the ability for the screen to fold under for protection (and to avoid distractions while playing) I’d be all over this.

  • Greg

    If this handheld console plays games like Skyrim beautifully then I’m sold. I hope it’s light enough to hold for more than a couple hours too.

    Screw all these Android hobby projects! Greed only begets more greed.

    The greed of Nvidia, and all these other companies to jump on the Android bandwagon is such a mess, and the funniest/saddest part is that MOST companies who sell Android products are doing POORLY financially speaking.

    • Imrightyourewrong

      Hahaha thumb me down all you want lemmings. You actually think Android helps companies financially thrive and make money?? Hahahaha

      Only Samsung is making money on Android, everyone else is struggling badly, and even HTC is just barely getting by financially.

      Almost all of Nvidia’s financial wealth has and continues to come from their Windows hardware sales.

    • Biff Tannen

      Android isn’t the reason the other companies are having problems, Samsung is! To many, many people Samsung is the king of the hill phone maker these days. I just upgraded to a Nexus 4 from a Galaxy S and if the Nexus 4 wasn’t around I probably would’ve gotten an S3.

    “think a local OnLive”

    think of it as identical to RemotePlay on PS3.

  • Graham

    Agreed! I’m eagerly awaiting my Kickstarter Backer console! very excited!
