NVIDIA ports Crysis and Doom for Android on the $199 Shield set-top box

NVIDIA ports Crysis 3, Doom and others for Android and the Shield
To this day, everyone snubbed mobile platforms when it comes to serious gaming with the rhetorical question Will it blend? "But can I play Crysis?" Yes, now you can, as NVIDIA has ported Crysis 3, and plenty of other blockbusters to run on its fresh NVIDIA Shield set-top box. 

This Android TV gear is powered by NVIDIA's hardcore X1 chip, of course, so that's one of the reasons you can play Crysis 3 on it.

How are you going to play complex games like Crysis on the Shield, though? Well, the box has its own elaborate gamepad to go with the graphics prowess, which sports up to 40 hours of battery life, or at least these are the official specs.

NVIDIA SHIELD will be available for $199 starting in May. Optional accessories include a remote control, additional controllers and a vertical stand.

NVIDIA is porting other popular titles to the Shield as well, such as Doom 3: BFG Edition, Resident Evil 5, The Talos Principle, Metal Gear Solid: Revengeance and Limbo, plus Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, of all things.
