So in addition to the Android Play Store game library, gamers can play titles from Steam, many of them that were once only available on the PS4.
The Shield Tablet is an 8” gaming-focused device with a 1920×1200 HD touch display, NVIDIA’s own Tegra K1 192 core Kepler GPU, a 2.2GHz ARM Cortex A15 CPU, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB or 32GB of on-board flash memory. When paired with the optional Shield wireless controller, you can play in a multitude of ways; Android, local PC, via the Cloud, or on your TV. It also features front-facing stereo speakers that are said to be booming, LTE connectivity, a Mini-HDMI port, front and rear 5MP cameras, and the new Shield supports game-casting to Twitch, so everyone can see how terrible you are at that game you play for three hours a day
