So far, Android gaming has largely been confined to casual games. But that’s going to change. We see a different future for Android gaming. We’re committed to turning Android into a vibrant platform that can excite gamers and provide the foundation for a vibrant industry. That’s why we’re introducing the SHIELD tablet and SHIELD controller to a family of SHIELD devices that includes our fantastic SHIELD portable, which we continue to sell, support, and update.
We’ve built Twitch – the world’s leading video community for gamers – right into the new SHIELD tablet. Mobile Android users can now broadcast live gameplay to friends and fans worldwide using the world's first Twitch streaming device, SHIELD tablet.
In addition to the thousands of Android games the SHIELD tablet can play on Google Play, there are now more than 400 SHIELD-optimized games available through the SHIELD Hub, as well as 11 specially optimized games for Tegra K1 – the world’s most advanced mobile processor – with many more coming. Here’s a look at five of them.
Our SHIELD tablet takes DirectStylus technology to the next level. The tablet’s Tegra K1 processor – with its 192 GPU cores – provides support for so many never-before-seen capabilities that we created our own app – Dabbler – to showcase what it can do.
