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.

Going to fix my Nvidia Shield Portable after not using for 2 years since my little nephews yanked off the usb port :( This handheld is perfect for emulation especially for PPSSPP emulator due to its improvements.

I simply was not in the market for such a thing.
Martin Machin (28 days ago)
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.

moonlight game streaming on android or as a chrome plugin. Port forward so you can even play your games when not at home. thank me later!

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.
I still use it constantly! Every day ! Netflix music Games its amazing

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.
DR cat (1 month ago)
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.

For emulators: just buy a Bluetooth gamepad designed to phones (that have phone holder)
Mr. Brudda (1 month 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 (2 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 (2 months ago)
However, it is bulky and was pricey. Not, it's even dead.

The problem is not getting popular in world markets if you want offer your self an full time dealer of that gaming gadget on the market for that console believe me you getting rich for only month's most people don't know how to shop online they just going in malls.

I still have mine, it's an absolute MUST if you fly a lot! I load up my SNES emulator and play Donkey Kong. Love how my HDMI port no longer works tho :/

Duncan F. Bought myself the nyko dock to avoid that issue glad I did
Even current pokemon games like pokemon platinum

I hated it and loved it. I loved it because it was strong enough to play half life 2 on it, but I deeply hated it because my battery shorted out only after 2 months of owning it and they refused to fix it just because I didn't keep my receipt.

Switch emulator for the shield? :D they're both running tegras; same architecture = gimme.

I like this shield portable because you don't have a bring a controller separately like a shield tablet. So I can just play like a 3ds but with an actual controller. Too bad that it didn't use Tegra X1
Razer Serval controller + a lovely Samsung oled screen + Moonlight. It's like a shied portable 2.0

Useless pice of shit. Mobil games is awful. Nvidia don't support this console. Change this shit on PS Vita and did not regret...
Garrett Nicholas (3 months ago)
I don't feel like it's obsolete. In fact I'd say it's ahead of its time. That was its real downfall. The customer base capable of appreciating it. Was unfortunately not large enough.

I wonder if rules of engagement work on this with controller mapping???! Plz someone check for me!
Phill D (3 months ago)
Nice vid and I agree 100%. I am looking for a set of goggles to fly a drone using the HDMI port on the shield.. Would you recommend something?
Ciprian Mogosanu (3 months ago)
The funny part ia that the shield portable did came back in 2017....it's called now the nintendo switch,the hardware inside is a new tegra chip,and is it the perfect mixture between the tablet and the portable
Average Joe (3 months ago)
Face it guys, the reason this thing failed is the reason all consoles fail. No games. The only ones worth a damn you have to stream from your pc, you can’t take those games and go in the car or the airport. So, why the fuck would you use this, just use your goddamn pc. Is it really that important to play on the couch? After that you have emulators, so if you’re into playing 10-20 year old games, there you go. And the android library, which has like 2 games worth a damn, and the others are trash or you need the touchscreen. Long story short, why r people surprised this failed.

I still have mine, I brought mine from a ebay seller back in 2015. Right now I mainly use it for Pandora and Android gaming. Believe it or not, the speaker of this thing is amazing for a built in speaker, and Pandora or any music sounds gogerous on it. For those of you who liked the original Gamepad Mapper that got removed during the latest patch, you can download the app in Google Play, also useful if you want to switch to a custom ROM such as LinageOS. The only thing I wish this supported is Vulkan, a lot of Android games right now uses Vulkan as the graphic API, they run poorly on this device due to it not having and Vulkan support, but that could easily be solved with a customization or a custom ROM.

If they do a Switch remodel in the style of this Shield portable, it may possibly be the greatest handheld Nintendo have ever put out lol
Average Joe (4 months ago)
It’s a shame this failed, but the switch definitely fills this void.
EQOAnostalgia (4 months ago)
I use mine almost daily. Emulators ftw, it handles shooters extremely well and MMO's are great on it. The streaming service seems to be shut down though... that really sucks. Not sure if the streaming from PC to shield still functions, honestly haven't used it much outside of the novelty of it to show friends and shit.
