This is why Nvidia’s Shield will fail

Extremetech: At CES this year, Nvidia announced something a bit unexpected — a handheld Android gaming console. Rather than just a phone, the Shield is reminiscent of an Xbox 360 controller, but with a clamshell-style screen that folds out on top. (Android, Gaming, NVIDIA)

the game stick
steam box
raspberri pi
android TV game units
android powered streaming units
the list goes on

its only flooding the market only 2 will live to become successful and have a decent and supportive community.

what I see happening is Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft
will still own the video gaming market, the true gamers and hardcore wont abandon the industry standards that have devs that support the consoles and the already established gaming communities that have a true backing and all that jazz.

The PC will have its share and the steam box/steam edging on to challenge the consoles. all of these Android devices will get bundled under a unique umbrella and combined they will take some market share from the big 3 and PC market (probably 5%).

the shield has way too much competition to join the handheld front, the 3DS, DS and psp pretty much own true hand held gaming (tablet and phone gaming is garbage and bs(just time killers)).

if it comes after the Android phone/tablet/ Ios gaming market it wont do better than the psp phone.

if it comes after the 3ds/ds/psp market it wont do better than the vita.
