Agree on the screen part - though I suppose having just one screen size to deal with (as opposed to any Android phone screen that could be mounted a la Moga) reduces some developer pain. It's really its TV ambitions that are more interesting to me though...

I bet it's not released in anything like commercial quantities. The controller aspect is interesting. The screen aspect is ridiculous when everyone has a phone already.
That's the part Nvidia will lose and end up with a product like the Moga controller.

I think the device is ugly and I imagine it's going to be a bit overpriced. But from a content paradigm point of view, this thing gets right what the VITA and to an extent the 3DS get wrong. Portable consoles are just not what the majority of us are going to use on the train anymore - they are used predominantly at home. This thing is perfect in that regard - it's a home gaming console you can play on the couch without disturbing those around you, but it's also a bridge to your TV.
That prime real-estate access combined with the open and democratic development power of Android is the reason that along with the OUYA and GameStick - Project Shield is part of THE most exciting device category to emerge since the tablet. I can't wait to see how the space pans out.
