I don't know for a fact I just thought that if you were trying to aim your gun on a bumpy road with the screen moving all over with your controller it would make it more difficult. Just a thought. I have never played a handheld gaming device before (other than my phone) so I really wouldn't know.

Having played many including the first Gameboy....you want the screen and controller attached.

My biggest problem is simply that it wont work with AMD cards. It's physx taken to the next level. I fail to see why an AMD card would be unable to stream to this if nVidia allowed it.

I have no real interest in one but its a principle thing

GeForce Experience is necessary for streaming. It isn't about principle, it is about development.

Honestly I don't see it. Yes theres probably a bigger reason for it than physx but in my mind but its the fact that nvidia is now preventing you from playing your games unless you own their hardware. The architecture of these cards isn't so different that the software layer that streams the games couldn't be tweaked to run on AMD. It would be another thing if they said this will work on our cards at launch but we do plan to expand it out across the board in the future.
