With the mass amount of people using Nvidia Shield to play emulators I'm wondering if that was Nvidia's plan from the start.
I've heard of cheap Chinese consoles that do the same thing. It looks as if Nvidia just decided to make a good quality version for the pirates.
Not sure if this has already been discussed but, I haven't really looked at the Shield till I saw the discount with purchasing an Nvidia video card. I can barely find a review without some mention of emulators in it. I know it can stream movies and games as well but, the one thing that makes it stand out from other devices is the amount of emulators that work with it.
