NVIDIA unveils Project Shield, a Tegra 4-powered Android gaming handheld

A video shown on-stage during NVIDIA’s press conference just unveiled “Project Shield,” a gaming controller / portable console running the just announced Tegra 4. The controller looks an awful lot like a PlayStation 3 DualShock 3, albeit with an HD screen attached. NVIDIA’s promising 38 hours of gaming out of the rechargeable lithium ion batteries built-in, a swanky audio system “on par with” jamboxes, and a full-on Android gaming experience. A micro SD sits next to an HDMI output and a standard eighth inch audio jack, directly below the customizable 5-inch “retinal display” touchscreen.

NVIDIA’s hoping Shield will replace your average controller as well — perhaps with that newly detailed Grid system? — and company CEO Jen-Hsun Huang showed off its use in-tandem with a swanky LG 4K television on-stage, navigating through media without pause. He also gave us a taste of a few games running on it (Blood Sword: Sword of Ruin and a boxing title) via NVIDIA’s Tegrazone gaming store. But beyond just Android games we’ve already seen, still-in-development Unreal Engine 3 title Hawken was also given a multiplayer run, and looked notably more attractive than the previous two titles. We’ll be getting a closer look at Project Shield later this week, and we’ll be sure to put it through its paces. Oh, and we’ll ask for a price and release window, as we’ve yet to hear official word on either.

StarCraft May Soon Run On Android

One of the best real time strategy games created is StarCraft. Despite the fact that this title was first released in 1998 for the Windows PC platform a lot of people still play this game. Proof of its popularity is that in South Korea the best StarCraft gamers that compete in tournaments are treated like celebrities.

Brood_War

You may soon be able to play StarCraft Brood War on your Android device as development is ongoing to make you use touch based controls to play the game. There is actually a way to play StarCraft on Android however it involves using an N64 emulator which lets you control the game using a digital joystick. The result is a laggy, messy game that will only frustrate you.

The new way to play the game is by the use of Winulator. This relatively new app, which by the way is not an emulator, allows you to run Windows API alongside ARM friendly code on your device storage. This is done with the the help of a tool called the Windows Converter Helper which converts Windows/x86-ready EXE and DLL files of any program into an ARM readable code.

As seen on the YouTube video Brood War is running on an Android device and at full speed too. If you’re excited about this and want to test it out you still can’t since it is not completed yet. This is still a work in progress which still requires some tweaking.

If you’re looking for a strategy game which you can play using Winulator you can check out Caesar III which already works. You’ll need to get Winulator on Google Play first (there’s a free and paid version) then get a copy of Caesar III. Since this is not a normal Android game installing it on your device is going to be different with the instructions provided here.
