Project Shield alread attracting attention from the big dogs

The newly announced portable Nvidia Tegra-4 powered handheld gaming device is already attracting attention from Ubisoft, Epic, & others.

The device, which was announced on Monday during CES 2013, will be supported by an Android operating system. While no games or publishers have been tied to the device, several big gaming company's have issued comments on it. Epic's Mark Rein stated that Project Shield is “an uncompromising, high-performance console experience” brought to you on a mobile device. He also stated that both Hawken and Real Boxing both utilize the Unreal Engine and look "fantastic" on the device.
“This is just the beginning, and we’re truly excited to see what more Unreal Engine developers will do with so much horsepower in such a compact gaming device,” he added.
Said Ubisoft's Yves Guillemot;
“Ubisoft is always excited about new hardware developments.

“Project Shield promises to bring both mobile and PC gamers a great new gaming experience. Seeing the PC version of Assassin’s Creed III run on the device is a great example of this, and further strengthens Ubisoft’s long-standing relationship with Nvdia.”
Speaking with Kotaku, an Nvidia spokesperson stated that Adhesive Games - Hawken developer - received a prototype Project Shield before Christmas. The developer stated that the Android version of Hawken will be exclusive to Tegra 4-powered devices and may be exclusive to Project Shield.

We'll see how well this catches on whenever it releases.
