Nvidia has been working on a gaming console of its own, namely the Project SHIELD. Now, the game ‘Burn Zombie Burn’ has been ported to this console to demonstrate its performance. Naturally, with the Nvidia Tegra 4 chip that goes into Project SHIELD, the console was able to run the game while maintaining excellent quality.
‘Burn Zombie Burn’ is originally a PS3 title and more recently, has been ported to a number of other mobile devices. The developer of the game is Tick Tock Games. It was the game developer that decided that it wanted to try the game on a mobile device which can provide maximum performance.
So Tick Tock Games decided to add support to ‘Burn Zombie Burn’ and port it to Project SHIELD. The video of the game running on the console is posted below and it shows that Project SHIELD offers a fairly impeccable performance while running the game.
A barely noticeable thing during the demo, though, is a very slight FPS lag during the gameplay. We are assuming that this is a result of some problem in porting the game, rather than having to do with the performance of the Tegra 4 chip.
The highlight of the experience is the attached LCD. Viewing the progress of the game on the 5-inch LCD display that is a part of the console feels right. No other game console currently has such a design and Nvidia is hoping that it it is going to revolutionize the game industry once Project SHIELD is launched.
Although Nvidia hasn’t given a definite date as to when the console may hit the shelves, it is expected that the company may finally make it available by the second quarter this year.
