“We’ll make our money by selling the device to gamers,” said Nvidia in a blog update. “This time-honored approach isn’t one we’re taking with Project Shield… our goal with it is to design and sell a truly great piece of hardware, one that fits comfortably in your hand, delights your eyes and blows out your ears.”
Several major publishers such as Ubisoft and Epic are interested in Project Shield.
