The eyes of the tech world are now centered on one name – NVIDIA. In addition to introducing a new variant of graphics card – Titan Z which will be priced at over 30 million Rupiah, NVIDIA also announced the presence of Pascal – a new GPU architecture that will replace Maxwell in 2016. With all the surprises they have prepared, there is one thing more interesting than this GTC event, especially for NVIDIA – Shield mainstay mobile device. Android-based device is sure to get one of the classic game series owned by Valve – Portal.
But not just take advantage of streaming technology that is the main feature of GTA 5 , this portal is a port project from the full version of PC. It may sound unattractive due to the fact that this port is adapted for a game that is over 5 years old, but the introduction of Portal to Shield is a thing worth celebrating by mobile gamers around the world.
Why? Shield itself is based on Android and the fact that it can play Portal, it means indicating that Valve has managed to ensure their flagship engine – Source can work on this operating system. This unlocks the potential that Source-based games like GTA 5 Money online hack , Team Fortress, Left 4 Dead, and Counter Strike can glide for Android in the future. Valve itself had time to express their desire to port Source to Android since 2012 ago. Does this mean that ambition is finally fulfilled? Valve has not provided any extra information.
If it’s true that Source – which is one of the most open engines for modification in the gaming industry – has entered Android, then the mobile gaming market will certainly appear more attractive. Or another possibility, this will be an exclusive collaboration between Valve and NVIDIA to reinforce Shield’s own selling points.
