Nvidia has been a player in the video game world for two decades, but has never been a competitor in the console arena.(See article here) But not after today, it has just been announced at the CES trade show in Las Vegas that the company will be releasing its own mobile gaming system. This game controller has a five-inch pop up multi-touch display along with knobs and gaming buttons. CEO Jen-Hsun Huang showed off its high-definition display by connecting the portable console directly to a big screen TV with a HDMI cable.
â€œThis is the culmination of five years of work,â€ Huang said. â€œYou can enjoy it on the small display or enjoy the same game on your television.â€
This system can play games from the Android game store as well as other PC compatible games. This console is even has cloud compatible creating endless possibilities. The product is said to first be sold in the United States and Canada. It looks like rough competition ahead for Nvidia, even though they have a quality product they are going up against the big boys now. Hope to get my hands on it soon and check out its playability.
