Nvidia announces its own portable gaming console

"Nvidia managed to pull out a big surprise and announced its own portable gaming console based on the new Tegra 4 chip, the Nvidia Project Shield. The new Shield is pretty much a standard sized controller with a flip-up 5-inch 1280x720 294dpi Retina-class touchscreen with Nvidia DirectTouch tech. It features rechargeable batteries capable to keep up with up to 38 hours of gaming and up to 24 hours of HD video playback, great integrated audio system with custom bass reflex and integrated console-grade game controller.

Are gaming handhelds too expensive?

Now that the PS3 Slim is $299, and the Xbox 360 Elite is well on its way to the same price, the ceiling for console gaming is finally coming down. This isn't a surprise; it happens every gaming generation. But, considering the components of multipurpose systems like the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, this generation of consoles has hovered at higher prices than consoles of the past. Now, however, all three home consoles are within $50 of each other.
