Hands-on with NVIDIA’s Gamestream, the evolution of Shield’s PC streaming tech (video)

NVIDIA Shield’s PC streaming tech is impressive, but NVIDIA’s Gamestream tech is even more impressive: employing the Shield’s HDMI-out port, games can not only be streamed to the Shield, but also to your living room TV. The functionality goes live on October 28th and officially takes PC streaming on Shield from beta to final. It’ll add “Console Mode” as well, which enables control of the Shield’s entire OS on your TV screen via connected Bluetooth controller.
