Game addicts, you can now play your favorite Android games in a specialized console with this new Project SHIELD by NVIDIA. Recently launched at the CES earlier this month, this Android device will let you experience HD Android games straight from the Google Play store as well as from your PC.

This portable gaming console comes with a 5-inch 720p retinal multi-touch display, a full-size console-grade game controller and a bass-reflex, tuned port audio system which all delivers excellent gaming experience. It also features 802.11n 2×2 MIMO game-speed Wi-Fi giving you the power to wirelessly access your PC games.
However, be guided with the following minimum system requirements for PC game streaming:
