Can NVIDIA's Shield Kick-Start Android Gaming?


The following video is from The Motley Fool's weekly Tech Review, in which host Chris Hill talks all things tech with Fool analysts Eric Bleeker and Lyons George.

NVIDIA will be releasing its Shield mobile gaming console, which will be a platform for Android-based games, at a $300 price point. Is this going to be a product that will be attractive to consumers? Is there enough content available in terms of Android games geared toward a gamepad to make this an interesting device? In this segment, Lyons and Eric discuss the many challenges NVIDIA's new device will face to find a place in the market, and why this may be way too far out of the company's core competency to succeed.
