We’re no longer limited to simply playing the latest games on our Samsung Galaxy S5 – not that there’s anything wrong with that, it’s a damn good device – instead we’ve hundreds of gadgets to sync up taking gaming to the next level.

On Black Friday Nvidia hosted a sale on their Shield Portable and Shield Tablet products, offering up a pretty decent discount for each one.

Archos is planning on getting into the Virtual Reality scene with a headset as well which will be available this November.
