Nvidia’s Project Shield Console Attracts Interest from Epic, Hawken dev, and Ubisoft
Nvidia’s Tegra 4 powered, android based portable console, Project Shield announced at CES this year, is attracting big name publishers like Ubisoft and Epic.
There are no games confirmed for the console at the moment from any publisher but Epic and Ubisoft did comment on the system.
Epic’s Mark Rein said Project Shield is “an uncompromising, high-performance console experience” for mobile devices, pinting out that Hawken and Real Boxing both utilise the Unreal Engine and “look fantastic” on the portable.
“This is just the beginning, and we’re truly excited to see what more Unreal Engine developers will do with so much horsepower in such a compact gaming device,” he added.
“Ubisoft is always excited about new hardware developments,” CEO Yves Guillemot, added, “and Project Shield promises to bring both mobile and PC gamers a great new gaming experience. Seeing the PC version of Assassin’s Creed III run on the device is a great example of this, and further strengthens Ubisoft’s long-standing relationship with Nvdia.”
Hawken publisher Meteor Games has welcomed this new console with open arms saying its a gateway for PC development and its an open platform.
Project Shield looks cool, but the console/portable market is getting really crowded. The Steambox and now this…. yo Microsoft better get some new IPs cause the Steambox and Project Shield are coming.More From Playeressence Mario Kart Double Dash Final Fantasy Vs 13 on PS4 to Block Used Games 2 Wishlist PS4?
