Nvidia announced today that its upcoming handheld, Project SHIELD, will be now called just SHIELD. In addition, the company has revealed some shots – via its official FB page – showcasing the final design of the handheld that can be viewed below. SHIELD is said to play both Android and PC titles.
As a pure Android device, it gives access to any game on Google Play. And as a wireless receiver and controller, it can stream games from a PC powered by NVIDIA GeForce GTX GPUs, accessing titles on its STEAM game library from anywhere in the home.
SHIELD promises to combine the advanced processing power of NVIDIA Tegra 4, breakthrough game-speed Wi-Fi technology and stunning HD video and audio built into a console-grade controller.
SHIELD will launch before the end of June for $349.99.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
