Well things with HTC have gotten a bit more interesting as of today regarding their consideration about opening a spin-off company for their Virtual Reality products. The statement released by HTC is pretty short and to the point, pointing out a few things while stating that the reports coming out of Taiwan were incorrect.
We had previously reported on the FCC filing of the NVIDIA Shield 2, but it is not the only Shield device in the works apparently. Rumors of a NVIDIA Shield Tablet started with a tablet, named “NVIDA Mocha,” when it appeared on GFXBench. Later, the site Fudzilla posted a story about this 7.9″ tablet being a part of the Shield Brand.
This rumor has been floating around since the later part of 2013 but apparently there is a bit more validity to it now. According to VG24/7, Amazon will be launching their Android game console sometime this year and will be priced somewhere below the $300 mark. That price point isn’t surprising considering Amazon likes to try and make their Android-based devices priced as low as possible.
Well isn’t this a tad ironic. After our post yesterday about Ouya which sent many of you, our readers, into a frenzy due to a comment about the Wii U, it appears that Nintendo may be looking at the possibility of supporting smartphone applications and games. Of course we’ve heard far fetched rumors before including the rumor that the Wii U actually was running a version of Android, or Nintendo was considering it at least.
Here comes a crazy rumor that is starting to circulate the internet today. Apparently Nintendo’s upcoming Wii U will have the Android OS integrated into it. While this seems rather far-fetched, anything is possible in the gaming industry and crazier things have happened although this is up there in the Top 5 even as a rumor.
