As you all know, this is a first of a kind device for NVIDIA. The American technology company is trying to make a breakthrough beyond businesses like PCs, smartphones and tablets, yet it's hard to tell what the outcome would be. Sony's PlayStation Vita sells at the same price ($300) and it's been out on the market for good year and a half, making it even more difficult for NVIDIA in the battle for handheld devices. Another rival, Nintendo's Wii U sells at $350 and has numerous games behind its back. Only time will show whether NVIDIA will trace out its way to gamers' hearts.
