There is no logical reason for this product to have gone away! I think part of Nintendo's deal with Nvidia (for the Switch processor) was that they HAD to discontinue the Shield Portable, because honestly it was a superior design to the switch, and because Android is a free-for-all for piracy.

I still have one that was destroyed a couple of years ago. Even now, I have not found a better way to game on the go
I still want this tbh, my friend had it back in 2015

Its like a ps tv but its a shield tv. Its more powerful than the switch but its not as cool. Literally, it gets so hot that it doesnt run uts rated speeds when your playing graphical games.

This is a wonderful machine, and the one thing I love about it is the system's design. Yeah, it's bulky. But either wear something that has big pockets, or bring a backpack or messenger bag. However, I think why they haven't rebooted it is because they really don't need to. Like there's the GPD XD Plus that came out this year. I don't know much about it, but it doesn't seem like a competitor to Switch. And then there's the GPD Win which is a portable that actually runs Windows. So that's neat? If Nvidia was to come back with something, I think it would have to run Windows, and just outclass GPD Win in every scenario possible.

Found one at a pawn shop last year for $70. Snagged it instantly.....zero refrats. This things awesome

I had one about a year ago . Loved it. But it had weird issues. Like sometimes it wouldn't work even when the power button was on. The power button would just glow . Even when the device was charged. I would wait for the battery to get empty and them recharge it and then it apparently used to work. On one day that same problem struck . But it never worked again.

I had a shield portable for a long time and played it to death, the only reason I even got rid of it was because I have the Shield tablet too, and was a lengthy and hard desicion to trade it in. But I'd recommend it to anyone! Half life 2, portal, mount and blade warband, all native on the device make it so worth it. The emulator potential was a big thing for me too, gba, ds, Sega, n64, ps1, your limited by your memory card only... Poor marketing and high price tag meant that it never got the boost it needed! But then I'm finding that with a lot of handheld currently. Vita is being abandoned unless you're Japanese, another example of high price and poor marketing though. I like the idea of the switch for the handheld capabilities but it's not got the fan base amongst my friends so I have no interest in it. Sorry I rambled on a bit there, back on point... Shield portable: a great device that will remain an unsung hero..

One reviewer of the Shield Portable on Amazon said "Nvidia Shield Portable is the future of all Handheld Gaming Systems" He was both right and wrong :(
marcus trelle (3 months ago)
Better to get this for emulation that the Psp Go, which gets touted as being the ultimate retro gaming machine but you can't set up a frontend like Arc Browser on it and 64mb of ram means that anything above Ps1 will either not work well or will just not work at all. Also you can turn the Shield Portable into a great set top box by plugging it into your tv with a hdmi cable. I can't wait to view high quality Cbr and Pdf files on my 40 inch Full Hd tv screen with one of the apps on the Play Store.
marcus trelle (3 months ago)
I heard that this has amazing sound quality because of the front facing speakers. That's what the reviewers said.
marcus trelle (3 months ago)
I like the fact that all the buttons are in the middle, so there is no having to reach behind to change the volume.

Hi,i hope you can see my comment and reply I am going to make a plan to buy this one,just for stream game from my PC using GTX1060 Is this worth it,anything else should i choose.I don't want to sit all day I mean,does it support for last-gen graphics card ?
Anthony Flagg (2 months ago)
If you can find it for cheap (around $150) it's worth it, very few systems have as big a battery (7350mah, bigger than some tablets), and coupled with the smartphone-sized screen that means you can sit and game, especially streaming which is less intensive, for basically 6-7 hours. That said, while Nvidia may not have considered it a commercial success, it did fill a niche at the time, and thus inspired a lot of work in the game-streaming field, so with an app like Moonlight, you can do this with basically any tablet or phone with almost any connected controller nowadays. So if you already have a decent device and a controller, it may not be worth the additional cost to get one of these. It supports any decent Kepler or better GPU (GTX 650 or better, if memory serves). Basically, if your machine supports ShadowPlay/NVENC you're golden. However, if you plan on going wireless you DO need a good router. I highly recommend at least a ~$150 tier ASUS or Netgear Wireless N or AC router (N56/N68 or AC66/AC68 are some good cheap models) with 5GHz network support. Otherwise you'll get a lot of hitching or bad connection problems.

Now with recent fusee gelee hack it won't matter, switch modded will be king. I use to own a shield portable, still have the k1, but the only true issue I had with the shield was the fact they used a crappy dpad. A SNES dpad will always be the best
axelgear666 (2 months ago)
Anthony Flagg I have a 8bitdo snes30 pro, its acceptable, not as good as SNES mini controller but I'll take the switch for what it is. Better than the delayed and outdated pyra dragonbox handheld
Anthony Flagg (2 months ago)
Except the Switch also has a terrible D-pad lol

Yes Nvidia has basically abandoned this entirely. Sad since nothing really came to take the crown. The GPD XD is the next best thing and it is just nowhere near as nice.
MrNappySlaps (4 months ago)
This makes me want to bring mine out of hibernation! I had mine full of emulators and games... Dono why I stopped , I thought my shield tablet would replace it , but seeing this makes me miss the whole controller in one unit. Also the shield had in-house controller to touch screen mapping, so everyting was compatible, wish it worked for pubg...

I like the concept of those shield tablet and shield portable, but their lack of ram is a big problem when android really needs a lot of ram to be responsive. Android kit kat needs 4gb ram, android 5 and 6 need 6gb ram, and android 7 and 8 need 8gb ram.
Anthony Flagg (2 months ago)
Actually I've been poking mine lately and they really did a great job with their ROMs for this, system only uses about 380MB of RAM at idle, so it works just fine.

Why did it fail
Anthony Flagg (2 months ago)
They released it at a time where everyone felt handheld gaming was basically dead, high-end phones and tablets were the new hotness, and everyone thought they were going to take that market. Little did they know that phone GPU drivers would be so terrible that there was no way that was going to happen, so to this day this machine still has one of the best mobile GPUs around (not so much in raw power but just working like it should). Unless a game absolutely requires OpenGL ES 3 support, this can still run it, more or less.

A Nvidia shield portable 2 prototype was actually discovered in a thrift store a year or two back. I wouldn't be surprised though if the Nvidia shield portable 2 wasn't released because of a agreement with Nintendo that led to them being the provider of the Switch processor (Tegra X1), resulting in Nintendo basically having a monopoly on the portable console market.

First time here, instant sub! Really cool you did the last 2 minutes kind of casually and without any cuts. Other YouTubers overscript and overedit their vids to death, even cutting out the slight silences between every sentence.

Just like Wii u tried to do back in the day.

My complaint is it’s 375$ for a decent one which is much more than a switch so it’s one of the worst purchases possible imo.

These things suck I had one kept it in best condition the power port didn't hardly change any more the touch screen display became unresponsive so I had too use the thumb stick to type I got another one samething happened again and I did not drop it or anything it's just shit don't buy.

I think it looks good and interesting. I think if I had this in public it would turn some heads.
For emulators: just buy a Bluetooth gamepad designed to phones (that have phone holder)
Mr. Dumbo (5 months ago)
Zoltán Szalay But even though most mobile games suck, there’s some out there which are great, And work perfectly with the portable! But yes I do agree with your point.

Sometimes we get in a weird situation, when everyone says "this device is a piece of crap now", but for us, it still totally usable!!! The portable handheld console today is Nintendo Switch, but I still happy with my Gameboy Advance. The fighting game to play on Switch is Ultra Street Fighter 2 Turbo, but "SURPRISE"!!! My favorite version of this game is Super SF2X Revival!!! Yes, its the japanese version and is the GBA version. Why I like more the japanese version than US version? Simple: the US version has a glitch related to PAL/NTSC and the last battle with Akuma just doesn't work at all!!! Every time you face him, the game freezes... For retro emulation, I use my GPD XD. Take a look on the Arc Browser, is a great solution to manage a gaming library with boxarts and directly start a game. My best combination is Arc Browser with RetroArch, Drastic, PPSSPP and Reicast.
Mono Coccyx (6 months ago)
Absolutely agree with you... bad timing! Specially now a days when you see all these GameBoy Zero projects and GPD XD. The shield wins and does what everyone is looking for, but has been forgotten after all this time.
Mono Coccyx (6 months ago)
However, it is bulky and was pricey. Not, it's even dead.

Wouldn't be a failure project if this ran windows.
V. Sriram Sundar (3 months ago)
No this is not a tablet unlike the NVIDIA Shield K1. That thing must run android because it's a small tablet with touchscreen a must for android gaming. If you are still interested in using controller for android gaming just buy the shield controller for K1. But this device is just a controller with a touchscreen display. You can't use the display for touch controls. Why not just run windows even windows has support for touchscreen?
